Brighton's Fun Day at Dixon

Betty brings English Angora lilac tort buck Chu's Brighton to the Dixon show.

Brighton is a mama's boy.

Me? Mama's boy?

I do like to be held, ...

I like mama holding me like a baby, ...

... and I like to be a show off too.

This blowing grooming is a bit much but...

Mama Betty usually give me a good hug and I like that.

Happy Birthday, Allen

Ten years later in 2017, Allen has judged Angora in the convention and is known for his excellence in judging all breeds including the wool breeds.   He shows his confidence in handling and judging the Angora.

Today is Allen's birthday, Happy Hoppy Birthday!!!
