We are a little behind it letting you know who is where this weekend. So open a window on Google maps and follow along. We have already briefed you on the traveling circus in Florida . You do know that the Ringling Brothers Museum is in Sarasota in the former mansion of PT Barnum, the Moorish fantasy castle known as Ca D’Zan? But we digress.

Ca D'Zan, Sarasota FL

For those of you who have been amazed at the nothingness that exists along the I-5 corridor in between Los Angeles and San Francisco, there is the town of Hanford, distinguished this weekend by four shows beginning today sponsored by the Sequoia Kennel Club and the Kings Kennel Club of California. Southern California fanciers also have the option of a four day cluster in Scottsdale AZ hosted by the Superstition Kennel Club and the Scottsdale Dog Fanciers Association beginning tomorrow.

Those of you who are not vacationing in the sun belts of Florida or California will have to make do with traditional Saturday/Sunday offerings in suburban St Louis (Belleville IL courtesy of the Belle-City KC), suburban Milwaukee (West Allis WI courtesy of the Wisconsin KC), New York Metro (Secaucus NJ courtesy of the Monticello NY KC & the KC of Northern NJ), the big city of Detroit (Detroit KC hosts), and the small town of Wichita Falls TX (Faith City KC hosts). Have no fear, each of these will have some top notch quality AKC dogs to take your breath away.


  1. Giant was Best in Hanford today. In the best lineup were the Dalmation, Flat Coat Retriever, Giant Schnauzer, Old English Sheepdog, St Manchester, Chinese Crested, and the longhair dachshund. Sorry I do not know names of the dogs!
