This post will be funnier if you read about my agility judging adventures from Thursday Night in Casper, WY first.
After returning from the dog show, I stop in the hotel lounge/restaurant to grab something to drink to take back to my room before heading out with the club to dinner. I notice a band is setting up and it appears to be just a few locals hanging around so far.
After routine ‘Hello’s’ and she takes my drink order, the bartender asks, ”Are you with the event?”
After last night’s lingerie show I very hesitantly ask “Which event?” After all, I have no idea what’s in store for tonight’s entertainment at this establishment!
She replies in a perky tone, ”The animal thing”. Oh, she must mean the dog show! So being relieved, I happily chirp up with a very enthusiastic “Oh YES!” and she says “Wow, that’s great! At first I thought you guys were a Taxi convention.”
I have no idea what the hell she’s talking about. What does a taxi have to do with a dog agility trial?
As I’m walking away and I see several men in camouflage at the check-in desk and a few redneck-types (like my husband) hanging around in the lobby, it dawns on me…She thinks I’m a part of what appears to be a Taxi-Dermy convention at the hotel. After all, what other animal ‘activity’ has anything to do with taxi’s, camouflage and rednecks????
As I pass a conference room, I peak in and see hand-drawn carcass diagrams on the white board and my Taxi-Dermy conclusions are confirmed.
It’s only 4:00 p.m. here in Casper, WY and we haven’t even gone to dinner yet. What else is in store for this agility judge in this cute, crazy and fun little town? : )
