I pondered over the  weekend if I really want to share my show-adventure, butt then I thought put up or shut up, we are friends and we share all things even the sad ones and also  the embarrassing stuff….

…so we drove to Nantes on saturday to join the Pink Party… Nantes is a former part of Brittany butt  it belongs to the department  Loire-Atlantique now. It’s two hours away from us, so we had to start in the early morning to be there in time…

…on the way to the show palace I met a lot of pups…

hello little schnauzer girl…

…hello I-don’tknow-your-breed, butt you are cute…

…any suggestions? it’s no pommeranian… maybe a fox? nordic breed?… I have no clue butt we liked each other…

….hiiiiiii poooooodles!!!!

…. so nice to meeeet ya….

…then I played with Mr. Jack and although we both are males we went very well along together…

… then we entered the pink pawty palace…

…the show was in full swing in more than 87 rings…

… they even had a jail there… I wonder what this little guys did  that they landed behind da bars…and there also was a giant candy stand we all had to pass on the way to the rings… probably a kind of test?

…our ring was next to the ring with the Great Pyrenean Mountain dogs… and the mama hugged this big polar bear…

… scandalous… I had to prevent  that  immediately with wild barking…

…and look there is Nilsen and his mom

we know them via FB, but on samedi we met us the furst time in da furs…

…and there is Marwei, my rival in the ring…

…and because it can be a little hairy with two males in the ring, Marwei and his owner came over to say hello, so we could see how much security distance we will need … well… it worked… we will not become  BFF’s butt there is no hate nor aggression… hey… don’t whisper “loser” in my ear… and would  you believe that he  is one month YOUNGER than me?

…the courage of the mama slipped a little southwards as she saw our rival, butt she was still confident that I will be a good ring partner..

…but like always… while humans make plans, the Weim laughs…

…and then two things happened… the mama was  told that we have to use a show leash and that we have to enter the ring right now…Uh ! OH! WHAT? WHO? WHERE? WHEN? NOW? …AAAAH!

Nilsen’s mama tried to help us with attaching the equipment, but you can not learn the things you ignored for weeks within 20 seconds…

…and so the mama walked da green mile with an upset weimaraner, who missed his comfy soft collar …

…and who wanted to do anything butt not to walk on that  runway to hell…

…aaaand here we go… or let’s say the Hobbit hopped through the ring like a goat…

…. and then he  tried to do a french leave…

…butt the mama had no sense  about the right time to buzz off…

…she accidentally  made it through the running part by the skin of her teeth….butt hey it was tooooo early to breathe….

… because there is a factor she has to notice and that factor is named da Weim…

…wanna see my teeth? NO WAY dude…

…I’m outta here… well nearly… that darned show leash is sadly no slip through collar…

…butt that was it finally  for me and the mama…

….  the judge made his decision and Nantes turned into Waterloo for me and the mama…and because there were no words for our gig the judge wrote a wordless evaluation sheet….where he noted ONLY the good things he saw…

…. therefore we got an empty sheet….

… butt nevertheless the judge was eggs-tremely  very patient and friendly…

…he  also told the mama that we have to solve this problem with my man-hating and he also eggs-plained the mama that I miss only one thing: ow-pee-dience.

WHAT? I never heard about that….is that a skin cream or something you can eat?

…butt as I saw the sad mama  I felt some  shame too … just an atomic teeny weeny tiny little bit…

…then we said  bye to Nilsen and Marwei and all other pups …

…and after the obligatory trashure hunt for the Elephant Skate…

…is it here?…

…is it there?

…or everywhere? we fortunately found our ride and drove home…

…butt I felt a little uncomfy for the sad mama…

…and so I promised the mama 3 BIG christmas gifts my dad has to pay for and also  that ow-pee-dience, whatever it is, I hope I can buy it at amazon or maybe in china… and here,  last butt not least the slideshow with all the friends I met at that Pink Party…

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

….and even when the pink turned  a little black that day, we met a lot of nice people and pups,   we the mama  learnt a lot and we she will try to fail better next time…. she can count on me for that…. just saying…

  1. Well what an experience! But at least you actually went and both you and the mama have learned for next time. My mother’s dog Erin doesn’t like men and she HATES policemen…!

  2. This adventure has a big lesson. Do you want to have fun or be trained to be a show dog? You can do it if you want to but it will take work. If Nilsen and Marwei can do it so can you.

  3. Oh Phenny, do tell your Mama not to be sad. Gail and I think you are a superstar (and the Mama too). After all, what does that judge know? Does he read your blog?
    Toodle pip!
    PS Could that foxy friend you met at be beginning be a Shiba Inu?

  4. kolytyi says:

    Hmmmm, Phenny, it smells like a labour camp call with the mom to me, generously financed by the dad!

  5. I have heard of ow-pee-dience but not sure where you buy it! LOL.

    I am sorry things didn’t go the way your mama wanted it too. But it looks like fun anyway.

    P.S.: Thank you for our card!!!!!!!

  6. Awe! The judges were clearly judging only the outside, as you would have won if they judged the inside 😉
    Maybe you should try an agility class? You have enough energy and it would help the Mama get back into her Suzi Quatro pants 😉😉

  7. saymber says:

    I’m sure your Ma is very proud of you Phenny – your a good boy. Some people can’t even handle being on their best behavior in front of so many people and other dogs. Hugs to you all there today! Love your Ma’s pants btw! She looked great too!

  8. Oh Phenny I’m so sorry the pink pawty wasn’t what your Mama had hoped it would be but you DID look adorable if not a bit “un-obedient” but isn’t life about FUN and not winning ribbons and stuffs??? I mean you are a super friend to all, a fun-loving boy at home and on an adventure, and you can’t help it if you aren’t a big fan of MEN (other than your Dad of course!). I really am sorry that your Mama was disappointed but at least you got to meet bunches of other friends there. You will always be SPECIAL dear Phenny – to your family and to all of us and THAT is worth a million badges/awards/ribbons!!

    Love and Hugs, Teddy

    • you’re right, it was a good day after all and we met lots of nice peeps and pups…. but nevertheless we have to fix that man-eating, before my daad ends in pieces… he meanwhile feels like a chewing bone ;O))))

      • Poor bruised and battered Dad. Well I guess maybe something happened to you when you were a wee pup before your Mom and Dad adopted you…..maybe something small with a man but you never forgot it. Your Dad loves you and I know that you know that but your “instinct” tells you something else. You have lots of REAL chewing bones – and I bet they taste better than your Dad’s arms too!!! HAHAHA

        Love, Teddy

      • the weird thing is that I was raised by two women… I never had a problem or adventure with a man… no one knows what problem I have… probably I’m a feminist by birth…

  9. Madi and Mom says:

    Well Da Phenny there is a saying that applies here
    “nothing ventured, nothing gained”!! You learned some stuffs saw some friends and
    mingled. You are still very young.
    Mom literally cracked up (you might have heard her) at
    “hey… don’t whisper “loser” in my ear…”
    That was so funny
    Hugs and remember your are #1 in our book
    Madi your bfff and mom

  10. Emmadog says:

    Madison wants to go with you next time because she is our pink girl. She loves everyone and says it looks like fun. My mom doesn’t want to go to a show. Hopefully you will get some training and things will go better. Obedience is overrated if you ask us!

  11. Goose says:

    Bro if you win on heart alone you would paws down!!! Obedience is OK, but being you and having fun is better, just sayin’.

  12. We’re sorry things didn’t work out as well as your Mama would have liked but we know you will get better every time you go to a show.

    The Florida Furkids

  13. Phenny, you are an amazing Weimaraner! The fox looks like our Finnish spitz, but I am not sure.
    Don´t worry, be happy! Pink is a colour for girls.

  14. Piglove says:

    Oh no brother. But on an upside in my favorite Scarlett O’Hara southern drawl, “There is always tomorrow”. And hey, your mom looked awesome in her outfit. That *has* to account for something too, right? And obedience… what is that really. I asked daddy and he started laughing and said as if… but told me not tell mommy he said that. Really? You gotta find out what that is… snorts and rolls with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

  15. OwyheeStar says:

    Mama is a brave soul to take on this challenge. Nothing is a total loss–this is a crossroad where you decide whether to move ahead or take a different route. Moving ahead means more work and less Phenny in charge stuff. (oops) It is a hard thing with the Weimar to break into the Show World I think. Jan Magnuson (who has earned a wheelbarrow full of titles and ribbons with her Willow girl) talks a lot about being biddable. Not every Weim shines in this area–as with humans, we have different pockets of brilliance. I know not what to say about Mr. Phenny–whatever you decide we applaud the effort. You are amazing in our eyes. Thanks for sharing and for the entertainment made from the boo-boos.

  16. Princess Leah says:

    Dearest Phenny, you are a pup wiv your OWN mind and that is the bestest…who wants to be a pup that can only do what a peep tells them…that would make life boring for the pup and peeps! I award you a GOLD STAR fur being YOU and another GOLD STAR to MAMA and Dad for being such a wonderful pawrents
    Loves and licky kisses

  17. Kismet says:

    They call your judge’s evaluation sheet
    “The Edict of Nantes”.

  18. Brian says:

    You are an excellent show dog Phenny and you did put on quite a show!

  19. dorysbackyard says:

    Hi Da Phenny…I don’t know much about the o-b-d-e-nse except when I go to school there are LOTS of treats! I do know that whether or not you go to school, you are the most talented weim and weim mama in France! We bet none of those other pups can help with DYI projects OR cook nommy meals for their peeps!

  20. I think that dog may actually be a fox. Did it sound like the fox in the song?

    I don’t think I’d ever seen a picture of a real Pyranese mountain dog before… but know what they look like from the cartoon Belle and Sebastian. Looks just like Belle!

    I think the judge’s recommendation of obedience should be responded to with an urgent pee mail….

    • the fox said fortunately nothing (uuuuh now this song is in my head) ;o) but this polar bears are super cute…I hugged the big guy and he was actaully like a teddy bear… and my jacket too LOL

  21. YAM-aunty says:

    Hari OM
    OMD Phenny – you put on a show – and isn’t that what the thing wuz about??? Cheez, no pleezin some peeps. Lift your mama’s spirits and help her choose those presents. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  22. And least you showed up and gave it your very best, Phenny. Next time will be better!

  23. You can’t make it all the time mom and Phenny. You learn about what not to do when you don’t.

  24. Jan K says:

    Oh, we’re sorry things did not go as your Momma planned and hoped. But it looks like you saw and met lots of nice friends, and learned a lot for the next time. And at least you tried and know what you need to work on. You still got further than Luke ever would! 🙂

  25. CarolMaeWY says:

    We think you and the Mama were pretty brave to enter this pink party. You were cute. You just needed to relax and listen. But if you had fun that’s great too. Go easy on the Mama. ❤️☃️🎄

  26. Phenny- you are a blue ribbon winner no matter what leash you have and if some stranger was poking around my private parts, I’d probably growl too! 😉 Go get some ice cream, you’ll feel better!! Wyatt

  27. Phenny do NOT make this experience make you or your Mom feel bad! Guess what? Dakota is an obedience school drop out!! Ohhhh yesssssssssss he is!!!!! He doesn’t much care for other dogs (the only dog he has ever met that he likes is our cousin Punky because she ignores him!!!) He hates when I give attention to other dogs. He would be just like you…but………he is BRILLIANT (like you!!) and LOVES US (like you love your parents). I don’t need him to be a show dog nor does your Mom need you to be one!!! You are a wonderful dog! In my opinion some of the brightest dogs are the least obedient, why? Because they have the ability to decide what they want to do! Oh forgot to tell you, we had to take our towel off of our door handle (inside that we use to dry Dakota) because when he hears a dog in the hallway he starts attacking the towel like a maniac. BOL!!! xoxo

  28. Aww I’m sorry Things didn’t go so well! Do you guys have places for handling classes? We have them here, and they are weekly drop in classes, so you just pay when you want to attend a class. Do you have something similar or are you on your own when it comes to preparing for competing at shows?

    Anyway, we thought you looked very handsome, you are the winner in our minds!

  29. Bella, Roxy and Dui says:

    Well… did get to meet lots of new pups so that was good. We think you’re a winner anyway. And that’s what counts. We don’t have oh-pee-dience either.

  30. At least you got to meet lots of new friends and the judge was nice. 🙂 I think maybe all that pink is to blame. There was certainly a lot of it!! We love you no matter where you place, but maybe next time you can improve just a bit for the Mama.


  31. “Cannot be judged”? That is seriously rude! I am sure you looked fabulous, Da Phenny. This reminded my #1 of the one time she took Violette to a show. Violette looked so gorgeous and the judges called her “common”. #1 has to be restrained because she really wanted to convert the judges to hamburger right away!


  32. Memories of Eric and Flynn says:

    Put it down to experience, Phenny. At least now you and your mum know what to expect. I think the judge needed glasses and you should have been a winner though!

  33. So just 2 areas of needed improvement! Granted those are kinda big areas BUTT there are only 2!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

    Pee Ess – Did you ever get our card? None came back to us so now we don’t know what to think!

  34. Foley Monster, Pocket and River Song says:

    We all have bad days. We bet next time you are going to be best in show. You are always best in show to all of us

  35. Lee and Phod says:

    Phenny – it isn’t the same but when I went to dog training I had to sit in a penelty box because I was not fit to be near others. Maybe with practice it will get easier. Lady got tired of being embarrassed and stopped taking me. prof. lee

  36. NylabluesMum says:

    Mee-you Phenny mee iss sure easy Rider iss lookin down on you with toe-tall ree-spect!!! You did him proud inn thee show ring, mew mew mew…..
    That furry doggie gurl iss so purrty; did you get her fone numburr?? Purrhapss a date?? An Nilsen an Marwie are good lookin weimss like you onlee you are more handsomer an you should have gotten a trophee fur that alone!!!
    ***Hi-5’sss*** Siddhartha Henry 😉

  37. We’re sorry you didn’t fare better at the pink party but at least you got to make new friends and meet one in the furs that you knew online. We think you are a champion in our eyes.

  38. Oh Phenny, maybe the Mama can have someone come work with you both so that she won’t have to be so sad next time?

  39. Christine says:

    I have friends that failed obedience training right now Wilma would fail

  40. Marv says:

    Oh Mr Phenny! I–Marvelous think you was a purrfect Phenny!
    As the great Mr Elliot said
    “By being yourself you put something wonderful in the world that was not there before.”
    And Phenny…you are Mr Wonderful!!!

  41. I would love to watch you at a show in the fur! You would think they wouldn’t put so much emphasis on how you act. I say vote for you since you are the most handsome Weim in the world!

  42. I say good job for trying!! Practice makes perfect and gotta keep at it. Your such a grown up boy just needyour mind to be that way. You’ll get it!

  43. It’s all good, Phenny. You’ll always be Best in Show for us. 🏆

  44. Fur me and Dalton…and petcretary you are tops! Blue ribbon and that kind of thing, because you make so many peeps happy, with your fun antics and real life whoopee doopee doings! So there, and that is our final judgemnet. Not too shabby huh??!

    Oh-oh…too much pee…time to go outside:)

  45. Tell your mommy don’t be sad, you are our number one, Phenny, they really don’t know you…yet 😉 Pink Pawkisses for the occasion 🙂 ❤

  46. Your mom and you are so brave to go to those dog show. For us you’re the best Weim ! Purrs

  47. Anarette says:

    Man oh Man, tell your momma that agility trials are way more fun. I just had mine yesterday, we will report on that soon. Benji
