Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show 2012

I showed Rocky this year at the 136th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show as a Grand Champion! The competition was fierce, and DeeDee the # 1 smooth coat took breed, a repeat of last year. We hit all the specialty shows and the Doggie Fashion show which can only be described as colorful and a bit crazy! This year we stayed at the Eventi Hotel, which I highly recommend. Rocky was the center of attention in their gorgeous lobby. We had a blast! You … [Read more...]

The Lehigh Valley shows

On December 17th, the Lehigh Valley Kennel Club held its dog show in Allentown at what us locals call "Ag Hall". This is the all purpose building next to the Farmers market in Allentown. It was a nice short drive for me. I arrived to a very crowded show with Rocky and Bill. Everything was decorated for Christmas, little trees , lights and cookies were everywhere. The rings were so close together, there was no room to breath and the dogs were a little … [Read more...]

Philadelphia Cluster

It was rainy and cold as we left for the Penn Treaty Kennel Club show on November 17th. The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center is a nice venue, large and airy. The show is well attended. There are four shows in this cluster. The one on Sunday ("the National Dog Show") is televised on Thanksgiving. I would only attend Thursday's show. We arrived early and settled in. I made my home base with my friends, some Frenchies, and a Xolo named Mintsi. The … [Read more...]

A good weekend at Back Mountain Kennel Club shows in Bloomsburg

Last Saturday I showed Bill and Rocky at Back Mountain Kennel Club shows in Bloomsburg. I wasn't feeling up to going on Saturday, I had a bad cold all week. But it was a beautiful sunny day and off we went. I did not enter Ted at these shows, he has some growing up to do. He is quite the willful boy. I hope to bring him out again after I finish Bill. Bill has been showing well and I hoped for some more points at these shows. Rocky is the perfect show … [Read more...]

More Adventures of Bill and Ted (and Rocky)

More dog shows have come and gone.  Bill and Ted are doing well.  Bill has really turned out nicely as he has gotten older.  Many judges have admired him. Ted although cute as can be is just plain willful.  At the Bucks County Kennel Club show which was outside,  Bill might have gotten the 4 point major if he had just walked.  He did get reserve.  The same thing happened at The Valley Forge show. Ted was uncooperative and Bill just wanted to sniff the … [Read more...]
