2006 ABC Schaumburg OctoBear Faire

I had a wonderful time at the show this year, thank you to all who stopped by to say hello!

This year's show was set up a bit differently than before... there were 2 rooms, and they had more room in the aisles for people to walk and congregate.

My best friend hurt her back (she's better now!) so I was not able to get around to the rest of the show...but I did hear lots of good things... that's the only disadvantage to having a table at the show... I don't get to see all the rest LOL!

This was a 2 day show... and I had fun helping people pick out their new furry friends to take home. Although it was exhausting I am looking forward to the next one.

I had my friend, Daphne Blau of Back Road Bears come all the way from New Hamshire to stay with me at my house, and have a table at the show. I live very close to where this show is held. Daphne and I had the greatest time... it's amazing we got any sleep!

On a non-bear note.... Monday - the day right after the show, my husband and I also went and picked up our new whippet dog from our breeder. She's 21 months old and needed a home.
So NOW I'm just getting back to bear making! I needed to get used to the habits of this new girl - Pandora. For one thing... I learned that she gets into a lot more things than our other whippets ever did! An expensive lesson learned after her 2nd day home... and a trip to the vet . she's just fine now... but I do need to keep an eye on her!
