...a few National Specialty Memories

My first National was held in Huntsville, Alabama. Terry and I arranged for Stephanie and Danielle to have someone look after them and off we went. It was so exciting! We were going to meet the people that I had only read about, written to and talked with on the telephone and admired. I could hardly wait. One of the people that I considered an early mentor told me, "Don't waste your time and money going to the National; They are always fixed." I chose to ignore this advice and go. I went to meet people, look at dogs and be immersed in Papillondom.

To this day, the excitement and anticipation remain the same. I look forward to the National from year to year. I meet old friends, make new ones, and have several days of nothing but Papillons and Papillon events! Over the years, I've missed only one National. It has always been my belief that if I were going to be involved in this breed then the National should be a priority.

When I return home from one National, I mark the next year's on the calendar in INK! When I am out shopping, I shop for things with an eye on the upcoming National. I make plans with friends and look forward to the event for months and months. I've never been sorry that I took the time off of work, many times unpaid leave, and traveled the miles to go to a National. I may or may not have brought home a win, but I always was happy to bring home the dog(s) I took, and thrilled to have more memories of people, places and Papillons.

In my mind, there is another reason to call the National a "specialty". Not only is it is a dog show that is only for one breed, but also, it always holds something "special" for those who attend and participate.

The National is made up of many late, late nights and early mornings. There are lots of laughs and even some tears but most of all, Papillons, Papillons and more Papillons... and always, something to learn.
