Cute dogs
I don't find Aquariums expensive at all so long as I stay out of the LFS's.

Does your mom show or does she hire handlers? I wonder if my mom knows her...she used to show Japanese Chins in various places. It's weird to watch Westminster and other shows and my mom's like "Is that so and so? I haven't seen him/her in years" or "I remember that judge...she's mean".

she used to show just around the florida area ! think it was more local shows though ! she did malteses as well ! but the hair on them is soooo hard to keep nice so she started with yorkies ! now she just breeds for fun/money ! i know she spent a fortune on the male pup from the champion yorkie ! its amazing how much work goes into showing the dogs ! have to give them people alot of credit !

Its not a dog....its a dog doll....and house.

I am far from surprised...I used to deal antiques, and I fly-fish...not cheap hobbies themselves.
