As Friday approached, she was cleaned and brushed and ready for our night on the town. We got there and of course all eyes were on Amber. There may have been other dogs there, but none quite like Amber. Not only was she one of the few pure bed dogs, but she was THE only show dog there. Since my dogs are my kids, I'm allowed to brag just a little! She was the most well behaved dog there. She sat by my side while men, women and children came up to pet and fawn all over her.
Two hours and two beers later, I packed Amber up and took her home. On our drive, she looked over at me from the passenger seat. There seemed to be a smile on her face. Not only had she enjoyed the mounds of attention, but I think she truly liked being out with me...just the two of us. I smiled back at her, patted her on the head and said, "Next week girl...next week!"
