    Glad you had a great time RG, & thanks for the report!

    (I wasn't enthused about the peke either, I was rooting for the dalmatian)

    Very true. And most of the rescues here are (pit) bull terrier mixes. Sad to think that their people probably couldn't manage them.

    Really, I do have my dream dog, and have had for years. I'll whisper it if you promise to think only good thoughts for when the time is right... Shhhh! Don't tell....http://entlebuchers.net/
    Each day is a gift, that's why it is called the present.

    There used to be an entlebucher that lived around the corner from us. He looked like a small Swiss Mountain Dog. Nice dogs.

    Is anybody watching the competition this year? I always enjoy the show! I grew up with terriers and while I like other dogs, I always seem to pull for a dog in the terrier group to win Best in Show (the Scottie and Westie, in particular). I do love that fox hound that won the hound group though.

    I watched! I felt I owed it to my newly adopted 8-yr old bullmastiff. She barked a few times during it.
    I love some of the things the ring announcer, as well as the TV ones, say. The TV one said something about the working group being the "slobbery-est" group. Made me chuckle.

    As a kid we used to go to a dog show in Pittsburgh every year, and we got to go back where the dogs were waiting and being groomed. It was awesome.

    The rough collie that we thought should have won for the breed last year did win this year. The group judge didn't give him a second glance, but he was a VERY nice dog.

    I was OK with the Affenpinscher winning, but I was rooting for the German Wirehair Pointer.
