2011 Yorkie Ball Extravaganza

Hello, Hello, Hellooooo!

Meee is baaaaaaack with the most exciting news: The 2011 Yorkshire Terrier National Rescue Ball ♥
OMDogness... where to start?
Well, last Thursday, Oct. 13th, Meee and my Pack got into our packed to the max car and drove about 9 hours to get to Nashville, TN.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by Yorkie friends and their Pawrents at the Sheraton Music City Hotel. Wow! What a welcome... My former roomie, Kung Fu Kori and her Sis, Sweet Ashley were the first to say Hello to us
and Meee got to see again my biological Bro named Whiskers with his forever Mommy; could not believe my eyes... He is very Handsome with long hair and much smaller than Meee.
Friday night we had the first big pawty that included the Fashion show.
My little Sis Aida was presenting the 2009 weeding gown which was meticulously put together by MaryElizabeth Dugmore and our Mama Corrine
If you are wondering why she looks so stressed is because (Shhh... do not tell her that you are reading this) she fell in love with this cuuuuuuute little Dachshund puppy, named Jack and was not interested in anything else after that. Luckily when she walked the runway in her pink Princess dress it was before meeting her Beau.
Meee on the other hand, was all business walking the runway in my red tuxedo with my Daddy. Unfortunately the pupparazzi could not come up with a good picture :o(
Here are some other models walking the runway with outfits all made by my very talented foster Mama, Corrine

My Bros, LeoT and Ray were very good just watching the whole thing...

There were a lot of Yorkettes and Yorksters with Pawsome outfits and if you would like to see more, please click here

On Saturday, my Pawrents went to visit downtown Nashville while we rested up for the Big event
They saw a lot of interesting things while visiting...

My Mommy was trying to convince my Daddy to buy her the pink hat...

My Daddy at the Parthenon building
Originally built for Tennessee's 1897 Centennial Exposition, this replica of the original Parthenon in Athens serves as a monument to what is considered the pinnacle of classical architecture. The plaster replicas of the Parthenon Marbles found in the Naos are direct casts of the original sculptures which adorned the pediments of the Athenian Parthenon, dating back to 438 B.C. The originals of these powerful fragments are housed in the British Museum in London.

By the time they got back to the hotel, it was time to go to the Yorkie Ball :o) We were soooo pumped! You would not believe all the celebrities we got to meet for the first time in our lives...
Meee met  Gorgeous Mary-Margaret in the fur.  Her blog was the very first blog Meee read and right there in then, Meee told my Mommy that she needs to be my secretary for my bloggie.
Isn't she Gorgeous???
Before the dinner, she was asked to say the Blessings since she is the Lt. Chaplain of the Yorkie Brigade Chapel and she asked Meee the honor to join in since Meee is the Assistant Pastor of the Yorkie Brigade Chapel

Well, during the dinner, my Bro Ray got into trouble with the Lt. Chaplain because he decided to show her "a good time".  Gorgeous Mary-Margaret put an end to it immediately letting Ray know that she was NOT that kind of Girl... Ray had to do a lot of apologizing followed by Mary-Margaret's forgiveness. Thank Goodness because Meee was very embarrassed by my Bro's behavior. Just for the record, my Bros were told to wear their best manners in front of the Yorkettes at the Ball.

We also had the honor of meeting in the fur the Huge celebrity,  Miss Jilly with her team.
They entertained the entire Ball room with their tricks. My Mommy took some videos but they did not do justice to their performance so please click here to see them in action, recorded professionally.
Meee had no clue that Miss Jilly is in that video where you type in a command and she does what you ask her...  
We also bought her book and it was pawtographed by team Jilly. 

Rick Caran is generously contributing a portion of the sales to the YTNR Yorkie Ball Fund Raiser. 

Meee also got the items that we bid on in the Silent auction.
The bed is mine but as you can see, my little Sis really does not care about that. Meee keeps telling her to stick with the purse she got

A very nice surprise my Pawrents got when they were given two beautiful brown carriers for us by the Yorkshire Terrier National Rescue 

Unfortunately, all good things come to an end :o( 
The Big Extravaganza was concluded by the very talented Dan Dugmore and Family; their music was just Pawsome. 
Many Thanks go out to the YTNR for such an Unforgettable Yorkie Ball event. Meee is still in awe over it.

Back in our hotel room we were ready for bed

My Bro Ray snored so loud that night that we had to remind him that he was not alone in the room

We headed back home on Sunday and we had a Pawsome stop in Greenwood, IN where our Aunt and Uncle live with our cousins Annie and Simba
Simba is the Big Guy and Annie is the black and white Girl and if you must know, Ray was just in love with sweet Annie. We kept telling him that she is relative and it would never work out but he did not seem to get it...

Well, that is all for now! Meee is all "talked" out...
 Neeko :o)
