Wednesdays means weekend previews. Here in the US, we used to have a reduced schedule of shows on Easter weekend, but this coming weekend we have twelve venues holding shows. In lieu of bunnies and ducks, we have Beagles and Retrievers in the following places:

Harrisburg PA will kick off the weekend tomorrow with the first of four shows hosted by the Lebanon County, Chambersburg Area, Harrisburg, and Mason & Dixon Kennel Clubs. There will be three days of shows starting tomorrow in Valdosta GA presented by the Valdosra, Augusta, and Atlanta Kennel Clubs. Sunday everyone, except, the hounds and the Golden Retirevers, will observe the holiday.

Also hosting a trio of shows are the Rhode Island and Providence County Kennel Clubs, who will run Friday through Sunday in Lincoln RI. Likewise, the Northeast Okalahoma and Mid Continent Kennel Clubs will do three shows Friday to Sunday in Grove OK. In addition to the Oklahoma shows, Region Five the resident Kennel Club will hold shows in Stephenville TX and the Terry-All Kennel Club (all breed) will be partying in Brighton CO.

Midwesterners can choose between the “I” states of Indiana and Iowa, where the Steel City Kennel Club will have a double header Saturday & Sunday in Crown Point IN and the Southeastern Iowa KC will share a pair of shows in Ottuma IA.

Region six will have shows in two locations, the first in Moses Lake WA hosted by the Ephrata-Moses Lake Kennel Club, the second in Sacramento CA where the Giant Schnauzer, CH Galilee's Pure Of Spirit, will have two chances at her 100th all breed Best In Show.

Jello Shooter Easter Eggs

Finally, we have two be a little envious of Region Seven exhibitors who get to chose between Easter Brunch in Las Vegas NV or on the island of Oahu, HI in the Honolulu suburb of Kaneohe. Did I ever tell you about the Easter show where we had Easter Egg Jello shooters ?
