She didn't seem to mind when I opened it for her.
I let out a whoop. She looked at me.
It was an invitation.
An invitation to the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship.
Congratulations! it said. WOW! I said. CONGRATULATIONS!!!
To be invited she had to qualify. To qualify she had to be in the top 25 Irish Wolfhounds nationally between Oct. 10, 2007, and Oct. 8, 2008.
She's only been competing since March.
And she qualified. WOW did she!!!
I gave her a big hug and she looked at me again, rolling her eyes, you're a little crazy today, mom.
Yes, I am, I told her.
