Norman and Co: The Retro Look

Sweet Baby boy Norman.

Doolittle, Belle, and Norman.

A pile of puppies with Norm on top...

"I didn't do it!"
Taryn was kind enough to send me these sweet pics she made of Norm and his littermates in Dec. 2009. That's about a month before we got him from Laura! I though everybody might enjoy looking at some puppy pictures...even if  they're not puppies anymore!

We now return you to our regularly scheduled programming...

Hey..this is Norman reporting (again). I am off-duty for awhile and chilling on my new memory foam bed that my "home people" bought while I was away at the show. It is very nice, especially on a cold and rainy day! I have just returned home from the Priceville AL shows and I am not sure whether I was a good boy or not. The first day (thurs) I won three ribbons: a blue, a purple, and a blue and white. Then I had to stay in the crate pretty much the rest of the weekend. (except they played with me a little more, I think..)  They told me I was "singled out" so I had to wait till next year to find  one more  major to "finish." That is OK with long as I can have some Thanksgiving Dinner in a week or so and watch that dog show on TV  that comes on after  the big parade with the floaty characters....

From Showdog to Batdog!

Norman came home just in time for Halloween, and we were very happy to have our little buddy home. However, he seemed to be settling into the showdog routine pretty well by the end of the second week with Cheryl. Most importantly, the little table problem seems (hopefully) to be a thing of the past. I thought he looked great on the table for the All Hallows Cluster Shows in Marietta GA. He went WD two of the four days, so he is now at 11 points (and he needs another major). We had a great time on Halloween evening trick-or-treating with our Batgirls and Norman (batman). We went up to First Baptist Church here in Villa Rica (GA) and he was seen and petted by many people...lots of my FB friends  had seen him on Facebook only and were glad to see him in-person. He had a great time and wore his costume without complaint for FIVE HOURS!! We trick-or-treated some more around the neighborhood, then everybody collapsed! Kudos to my kids' school for planning a teacher's workday on Monday!
