Claudina Getting Ready for Judging

Claudina's best friend Carolyn records how she gets ready for the show table:
Mama is using a blower to make me pretty.

Mom, that tickles...

Mom, do you have to fuss over my butt that much?

Mom, that's enough...

I'm really fluffy, I'm ready...

Yes, I'm so ready...


After all this blowing and fluffing now I'm in this little coop.  Hey, cousin Incendio, don't you think this whole thing is kinda ridiculous?

Hi, cousin Claudina, I totally agree with you.   My mama spends so much time to make me into a big fluffy ball but look at me, I'm squeezed into this little coop.
