An excellent trip!

On this 20 hour drive, 2 days each way, my wonderful friend, Sondra Robertson, and I had one of the best times of our life
together!  Sondra and I have been friends for over a dozen years, and we've always wanted to have this quality time together.  
Our dream became reality in this very fun trip to Raleigh!  This trip will forever be special for us!

We also thoroughly enjoyed the precious time with dear friends:  Scottie Cone of Rags2riches Ragdolls,
Audra Mitchell and Judy Pristash, and all of our TICA friends at this show!

My beautiful Linden did very well against International cat competition, and this trip put him over the 10,000 point mark!  
We are hoping and praying to earn him an International Win, and only have only 3 more shows in this show season:  Vinton,
San Antonio and OKC.  Showing Linden has been a dream-come-true for us... Our eternal gratitude to Christie of
Keepurrs Ragdolls

This show was our baby Seiryu's 4 month old kitten debut!  
Seiryu turned 4 months on the day before this show!  He is from our beautiful Princess and Hero, and we are proud to
announce that we will hand carry him to the TICA judge and Reddoor Ragdolls in Japan, Nahoko Kaizuka.  Seiryu competed
with 3 other nice Ragdoll kittens, and he did very well.  He was Best of Breed in 3 rings, and 2nd of Breed in many others.  
He loves the travel and the showing, and we are very pleased with this show results.  We now look forward to his show career!
