Friday Funny: Watching the Dog Show

best-seatBest seat in the house for watching the dog show.

I’ll be live-blogging my little heart out, but if you want to watch: The evening competitions will be streamed live beginning at 6:00 p.m. each night on akc.org, on RoyalCanin.com, and live on Fido TV. The show will be televised on the Hallmark Channel on January 23, 2017 6-9 PM ET/PT. The Bred-By Exhibitor groups, Junior Showmanship Finals, Best Miscellaneous, agility and obedience will be taped and available on demand at www.akc.org.

Conformation Schedule: All Sporting, Hound, Toy, Non-Sporting Breeds and Junior Showmanship Competition will be Judged on Saturday. All Working, Terrier, Herding Breeds, Miscellaneous and Best in Show will be Judged on Sunday.

If you’re going to be at the show, look for me. I’m a little taller than the average woman, heavy, and blonde. My photographer son is very tall and African American, so we make a pretty identifiable couple.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
