Beautiful AFL in Michigan

Dawn G, our East Coast Report sends this update on the Michigan State Convention, held March 5 and 6.

What a nice turnout of Fuzzies and exhibitors! Over 60 Fuzzies shown in Open and a Specialty show  on Sat and a very nice turnout of Youth Fuzzies shown in the State Show! It was nice seeing Theresa Frank back at the tables again with some beautiful color and although Sherry Callen didn’t have any rabbits to show, she was a trooper and came and held up way better than any of thought she would!

Does anyone remember this year at Convention when Allen Mesick had to DQ a SSB from the table because he fell over on the show table? Well, I’d counted and re-counted and thought I’d given everyone a crock with water but apparently I missed one! By show day, Bastet’s Nemo was dehydrated and couldn’t even stand! Cindy Decker and I took him back into the wool room and gave him subcutaneous liquids and within a few hours he was eating again. At the MI State Show, Bastet’s Nemo took Best of Breed! Thank you again Cindy! Nemo is near and dear to my heart because he’s out of Brian’s Neptune through a breeding Brian and I traded. He’s the sweetest thing ever and I just love him to pieces!
