Yes, I spent a happy sunny Sunday with Tara & John (of Robin & Finchy fame) checking out the critters at the 2009 Puyallup Fair. What you see here are the usual cellcam photos (= terrible quality. I know). But T&J were so kind as to give me a few of theirs, which are professional quality, so stay tuned for some tomorrow.
Meanwhile, here's a 4-H kitty sleeping after a hard morning's getting judged.
All three of us loved this orange fellow. Just because.
Each cat's cage sported themed decor of some kind. This is a 4-H tradition/rule, it seems. I wish I had gotten a photo of the cat bed made up to look like a golden beehive.
There is such a thing as a Bantam Duck (this kind is a Call Duck, I gather). I didn't know that. They would fit comfortably in your open hand, and have cute stubby round beaks. I chose this one because all the others were posed so porcelain-smooth they didn't look real.
