tomorrow is the big day!

   Well, here we are... after all these past months of hard work, practice, and a lot of dedication, we're finally able to say that our first show back is TOMORROW! It's so crazy, time has gone so fast. It seems that the older I get, the faster time goes by.
   Today Keebler got a thorough bath and a lot of minor things like trimming, nail filing, etc. At this point we are pretty much ready to go! Just some minor touch-ups we will need to do tomorrow at the showgrounds and we'll be set! Aussies are showing tomorrow between 10 and 11 in the morning. You can follow us on Twitter (cw_teamkeebler) for updates throughout the day... we'll be tweeting!
   This morning Keebler & I enjoyed snuggling in bed and watching the Royal Wedding... did anyone else get up (or stay up late!) to see it? We woke up at 5:30 this morning to watch Princess Kate walk into Westminster Abbey. What a gorgeous dress! It was such a lovely wedding and we loved feeling as if we were actually there to witness a Royal Marriage!
   We hope all of you will have a good weekend! We'll blog later with our results!!

our wkd of grooming, & a new way to keep in touch with us.

   Happy Monday to all of our readers! Well, as happy a Monday as Monday can get, right? Hope all of you had a wonderful Easter weekend!
   Our Easter weekend was spent at our home in Greenville to prepare for next weekend. It was one major grooming session for most of the weekend! We love all of our new Chris Christensen products, and our fun Herbal Essences products, too! Everything ran smoothly and went very well, we're very pleased. At the end of the weekend, Keebler looked absolutely beautiful. We are so excited for next weekend to get here! We still can't believe how quickly time has flown by, and now our big weekend is almost here. Start counting down the days, everyone!
   On another little sidenote: I am currently in the process of trying to set-up a mobile account on our Twitter page. It's a little difficult right now because I'm at college and our library is way underground and has no service. However, by the end of tonight, it will be set-up, so if you have a Twitter account and would like to follow us, our username is cw_teamkeebler. We look forward to seeing what all of you out there are up to, too!
   Five days, everyone!!

only one week left... my, how time has flown by!

   Okay everyone, Team Keebler cannot believe how quickly the time has flown by since we started this blog. Our first weekend back is only a week away now! It seems like just last week it was snowing outside and we were wishing everyone a "Merry Christmas," and now here we are with spring weather and a show coming up in exactly one week.
   Today we did a huge "trial run" of clipping, bath, etc.  We love all of our new Chris Christensen products we just received via UPS from  Thanks guys, for making Team Keebler gorgeous!  Everything from training to bathing is going really well for us, and although we're nervous, we feel ready and prepared for the weekend ahead!  Stay posted as we update you on everything that will be going on for the next week before our big weekend out!

a bit of training.

   Hi everyone! What is everyone thinking about all this nice weather we've had lately? Well despite some of the heavy rain of course... Team Keebler is loving this streak of warm weather! We definitely feel like our time has come for a lot more running, walking, and just being outside in the sunshine!
   First off, my apologies to anyone who has tried calling or shooting me a text message these past few days. Keebler and I were trying to enjoy the first really warm day of the year on Sunday by laying out on the deck. I had my phone in my hand while laying out and a wasp came down and stung my hand, causing me to panic and toss my phone right into the pool. Blech! It's been out of service since then, but I actually got it to start working last night. However, I had 127 unread text messages and I couldn't get through every single one of them. Sorry everyone! Remember, another way of contacting us is through our email,
   Anyways, the main point of this blog was to tell y'all that Team Keebler did some ring training tonight! We went back to where we started, our local 4-H club, and worked with my long-time advisors (and other set of parents sometimes!) Ed & Susie. Things went a little sluggish because of the heat, and plus, well, let's just say Keebler was extremely excited to see Ed & Susie again since he hasn't seen them for a while now. He loves them like crazy! We're going to continue to go back and keep on keeping on!
   Hope everyone is having an awesome time getting pumped up for some summer sunshine, Team Keebler certainly is!

a little april update!

   Finally everyone, April is here! Yay! Team Keebler has 30 days left before their first show back, so we're really getting down to business now! Luckily the weather is warming up (slowly but surely) so we're able to go on more walks and runs now. Not much has been happening except for a lot more grooming and training... keep checking back because I'm sure in this next month before our big weekend out we will have a lot to update!
