The Road to Westminster
(Rolex goes to the "Big Top")

On our first leg of the journey to the Westminster Kennel Club dog show, Ch. All-Time Hunter's Point Rolex (aka Rolex), my husband Jim and I first spent 3 days at the Big Apple Sporting Society Show and the Garden State Specialties in Secaucus, New Jersey.  We were accompanied by Whitney (A/C Ch. All-Time 'N' Whitney's Babbling Brook).  Both Rolex and Whitney were entered in the shows, but more importantly we were there to support English Springer Spaniel Club of Long Island-Rescue.

On Thursday and Friday the team held two fundraisers for Rescue.  The great group of volunteers who join us in New Jersey each year came and helped Marge and I put together a successful fundraising event to help out the coffers of Rescue. 

Friday morning we drove into the city for television interview that was to be shown Tuesday morning before Westminster.  We got to meet David Frei and visit the Hotel Pennsylvania where many of the dogs stay during Westminster. Rolex was a big ham and everyone there was giving him love and kisses from the sound guy right down to the makeup girl.  He actually wanted to sit in a chair and let her do HIS makeup! 

When we got back to New Jersey, Rolex received a special package in the mail containing a brand new show robe and a fleece blanket to cover his crate at the big show in New York City.

He modeled it for all of us when he got it in the mail.

After three very long days, we started getting ready to head into the big city on Monday, to prepare for Westminster.
