Girls' Winning Weekend

I had a fun "girls' weekend" with Melissa, Kayla and Hannah. We took a road trip to some place called New Castle in Western Pennsylvania. It was so much fun! We had a sleep-over, and I stayed in my first hotel ever! I was so excited that I didn't want anyone to sleep - I wanted to have a pajama party, tell ghost stories, and eat ice cream out of the carton. I mean, isn't that what you're supposed to do on a girls' night sleepover? Melissa kept telling me to go to sleep, but I really didn't want to, so I tried to instigate trouble by bothering Hannah. Eventually I got upset that noone would play, so I fell asleep in a huff.

On Sunday, we woke up bright and early and went to a big party. I think there were at least a trillion different kinds of dogs there! I kept trying to figure out whose birthday it was - why else would there be so many people? There were a bunch of rings, though, which was weird. And people were walking their dogs around the rings in circles. I don't know how they didn't get dizzy!

Then, Melissa told me it was our turn. For what? Hitting the pinata? I was excited until she put a show lead on me and took me into one of the rings. Hmmm... what is going on? We went around the ring and Melissa gave me all sorts of yummy treats! Then the nice judge told me I was pretty and gave me a prize! So, what you're telling me is that I walk in a circle, get yummy treats, stand and get petted by a judge, and walk in a circle again - and I get a prize! Sign me up!

Melissa took me into a ring later, and we did the same thing!

Melissa was excited and said "you won!" What did I win? A cupcake? I really hope so! Lots of people congratulated Melissa and told her that I was very pretty. I heard someone say something about my being "Winners Bitch" - how rude! But, they said that it was a good thing, and that Hannah had won too!

Apparently, I won 2 POINTS towards my AKC Championship!!

After all of the excitement, Hannah and I napped the rest of the afternoon.


  1. Congratulations! A prize AND sleeping in a hotel -- that's a big weekend!

  2. Way to go Laila! You are the tops!

  3. My dear Ms. Laila,

    Heartiest congratulations! Perhaps you should insist on the Four Seasons from now on.
