On the way to NASS 2012

We left home at 4:00am on Monday October 15th and made it to Sandusky, OH the first night. We got up early Tuesday morning and headed for our first stop at Julie’s. We arrived early afternoon and were able to meet with Peter and Carole for some ring training. Peter was nice enough to do a little protection work with Aiden. That evening we went to Gustavo’s to watch the training. We spent the night in Marshall, MI and the next morning we went back to Julie’s for some more ring training (and a little protection work!) We took the boys for a nice long walk on Julie’s property and then headed out to Chicago.

We checked in to the NASS host hotel, the Westin. Aiden and Dylan were pleased that the hotel was well above their usual standards of a Motel 6! 

Thursday morning we went to the NASS site to get Aiden familiar with the area and to set up our tent.

In the evening we picked my sister, Donna, up at O’Hare airport. Donna came up to support the AT team at NASS – her first experience at a Sieger Show.

    Great photos as usual Lynda. Please apologize to your sister. For some reason i kept calling her Caroline-not sure why, b/c I know better. I’ll blame it on old age.

    Lynda, thank you for the great pictures. I love the boys under the Westin sign. I would take either of your boys home in a second. However, I would need to set Dylan’s ears. It just isn’t right for a black GSD to have floppy ears.

    Ava and Aiden were just plain old rock stars!

    “…..set Dylan’s ears”…..LOL!!

    Aiden, as all GSD’s, has to be in the lead where-ever we go. As we approached the hotel lobby doors Jack was in front with Aiden and I was right behind with Dylan. Judge Setzer pointed to Dylan and said in his great german accent “This one moves to the front”!!
