I am at work and I tried to click the link.  It is blocked because it says it is under the category "pornography"!

WTF?  Stupid work and their website blocking.

Haha!  Some of the things I have tried to look at and were blocked are silly.  I have gotten the "porn" block before trying to look at links off of here...   "advertisting" too, but I guess I could KINDA understand that one.  Kinda odd none the less.  

Oh well.   I will check him out when I get home!    ;;)

Oh Snap - Looks like I missed a good one - One breeder wrote this regarding the Top Twenty Last night -
:aua:

ABC Top Twenty had a makeover this year :).  Chairman Loretta Parolisi and the
Top Twenty committee turned a competition into a must-see EVENT!  WOW!  The ring
was decorated beautifully, and the dogs made a grand entrance through an archway
with spotlights and music chosen by each dog's owner and handler.  

Several previous winners were shown first for exhibition only.  The house lights
were lowered, and each dog was brought out in the spotlight with music selected
just for them while their accomplishments were read for the audience.  The 2002
winner, Ch. Carillon Elegance of Rummer Run, came first with "You Are So
Beautiful" playing in the background.  If there was a dry eye in the house, it
didn't belong to anyone near me!  Ellie was followed by Ch. Brookwood's
Dreamdancer (2003), Ch. Brookwood's Mystic Warrior (2004), Ch. Bayview Some Like
It Hot (2006 -- and wearing a diamond necklace!!), and Ch. Ein-Von's Just A
Rumor (2007).  

The judges were presented, all elegantly dressed:
Multi-breed judge:  Thomas R. Squicciarini
Breeder judge:  Wendy June Morawski
Handler judge:  Christa Cook

Then each Top Twenty qualifier entered the ring in the spotlight with music
playing.  They came to center ring and the handler presented the dog from all
sides.  The houselights were brought up for the judges to examine the dog.  Then
the dogs was moved down and back twice and once around with several
opportunities to nail that perfect free stack :).  

The eventual winner, Ch. Arriba Talisman Satisfaction ("Sedona") was a popular
choice.  He has now done the hat trick, winning Grand Prize Futurity in 2006
under Gary Steele, Best of Breed in 2007 under Alberto Berrios, and now the Top
Twenty in 2008.  It just doesn't get much better in the world of dogs :).  To
make the situation even more unique, his breeder/owner/handler, Ginny Shames,
had to try to get some sleep so she could finish judging the Futurity today :).  
I'm guessing sleep didn't come easily after excitement like that!  

I'm off to watch the judging!  Don't wanna miss a thing!
