Day 765: The Luke At The Dog Show!

That fun weekend is here... the Reliant Park World Series of Dog Shows... and I, the Luke, have am honored to be there!!! You probably recognize me... the handsome fellow, holdin up the letter 'H' on the 'GRRH' banner!
I cannot believe these nice folks aren't facin TOWARD the banner!
My the Mom is one of THOSE kinds of the Moms, so please to pardon the mulititude of more pitchers...

Adorable puppy, theBrandon Dibs, holdin up the 'G'...
The most handsome Bernard, likely GRRH's most amazin success story!
And you all know my pal, the Buddy... Sweetheart to all the ladies!
And of course, then there's the me... need I say more?
Off the wall and back in the boof... here is the SnowBear, GRRH alum, wif the softest fur you have ever felt. He is a dashinly handsome boy wif about a five hour time limit on your sweet lovin. I mean, that Sweet Boy was takin it all in. Just sayin.
And I know you remember my the Cousin Dylan, of "The Herd". His brother, the Buddy, was featured on the banner, but Dylan took in all the shnoofins and pettins! 
The Mom sat down for a while and in so doin, was greeted by this nice fellow, name of Max... and well, you know what the Mom was finkin...
Nigel Buggers!!!
And now for the real reason the Mom was at the Dog Show for the second day in a row... so me and my brother, the Bleu, could "sit" for our annual portrait by Mike McCartney!
And here he is in action...
How in the world do you fink he will capture our personalities this year???
Well, let's see... I am monitorin wind speed and direction. Check. I've got my rain gauge, barometer and laptop... and I'm busy busy busy. Check.
And let's see, what is the Bleu doin? He is sniffin flowers while the butterflies dance round his back... and he's daydreamin of his girlfriend, the Porter... Check!
And of course, the Comet is watchin over us all. Very fittin. Very comfortin.

And here is Mike, posin wif the master piece!
Gosh... I'm tired!!!
Not too tired to hop, though!!!
Come on, join in the fun! Hop by and visit the swell pet bloggers on this list... and if you'd like pawticipate, I suggest you hop by Life With Dogs to get the scoop!

Glad you're not here tonight... loud boomers, lightening and lots of rain. We've sure had a lot of it this spring & summer:(

Khyra left out Hero! So totally handsome of you to hold the H.

Love the artist pic. Maybe with all of your weather detecting skills now you can keep those bad storms away.
