Default A Nostalgic look back . . . .

I think these photos are from about 1989---from the UK where I first got into maltese seriously. We started at at a few local shows & went on to do one big show in Windsor---we did not win anything there. Our pup was very young & had taken all the hair off the back of one of her legs (she had something inside her "gut" which was later identified & removed!
These are mostly photos from a local show where we started out in our town west of London. The last shot is from the breeder where we got our bitch----she was helping groom her at Windsor. They are not good quality as they are taken from old film (super 8) which has been in storage for about 31 yrs.

Wow, It's hard to recognize you with dark hair. It looks like you were having a lot of fun showing your girl.

Actually I never liked showing. I am not a competitive person by nature. Still she was a lovely pup & I learned a great deal through the process. I finally got my afifx in Austria (that was a big job)!

You are both beautiful. It's fun to take a look back in time

Bitzi was just a baby here, and I was new to showing! I learned so much. She was a little jewel.

Thank you ALL for your generous compliments. I know that "compliments are to be smelled but not swallowed!"
I was about 44-45 here. I am not sure I would want to re-live all of those years again! But I would love to have all of my furry babies back together, for at least one day! But on the other hand, maybe not. It would be too hard to say goodbye again.

This is my youngest DD who just had our new, little g-son---she was about 10 here.

Oh such beautiful photos! It looks like you were having a wonderful time, even if you didn’t like showing lol 😉 . Isn’t it a treasure to be able to look back at these photos? You are beautiful as always!
