December 19, 2016

Leading off this group is the Papillon, a name which is the French word for butterfly. “Why a butterfly?” you may ask?   If you see the ears from face-on, they make the head look like a beautiful butterfly.

2016 AKC Meet the Breeds “G” through “I”

December 19, 2016

Moving on with the G’s. I should probably note that not every breed was represented at this event. Some didn’t have tables set up, and some of the tables were not manned, for example, if the breed was being shown at the time I happened by.

December 19, 2016

I spent a few hours wandering through the Meet the Breeds event at the 2016 AKC National Championships in Orlando, Florida. I’m trying to decide how to present the pictures. I thought about doing it by breed group, but thought maybe it made more sense to go alphabetically. So, here is the “A” group.
