That's the side that loves getting all dressed up and having an evening out with my sweetie
and my family
and actually getting to walk the runway with Genghis at the Washington Humane Society's Fashion for Paws Runway Show!

It was three months of hard work to raise enough money to qualify, but I knew it would be worth it just to have this experience once!
As someone who grooms other beings for a living, it was fantastic to actually feel what it's like to be groomed myself and to get my hair and face done by professionals.
There's a first time for everything!
Then that moment came! Genghis and I were united backstage and I got to see him in his sparkly turquoise magnificence.
When we walked out, he exuded calmness and self-assurance. Glad one of us did!
I had some treats because I thought he might do that thing he often does in public where he rolls over on his back with his paws up in the air and doesn't move for a while.
Which would have been kind of good, but I knew the organizers of the show wanted to keep things moving.
But Genghis elected not to play dead and angle for a belly rub on this occasion, instead just pausing in front of a photographer whenever he could to make sure they got a really good shot of his handsomeness.

What's wrong with people, anyway?
Thanks Genghis and family for a lovely evening! This was truly a night to remember.
