November in Finland comes with the typical weather, fall storms and some places get their first snow. This weekend we were in Jyväskylä.

Sun. 11.11.2019 INT. DOG SHOW
The show was a typical show with more space for the ring than yesterday. We were able to get there quick via a long walking bridge.

Saturday's show featured a stuffy ring used by a lot of dogs. It was crowded and moving around the area required a lot of, "Excuse me, I'm coming through."

Fortunately, the madness was mostly forgotten, thanks to the results produced by our little diva.
