Wow, didn’t we just finish last weekend’s show reports? And don’t we still have rankings to update? Well, time waits for no blogger and neither does the dog show calendar.

Snoopy Spring Fling

Kicking it off tomorrow is the Super Spring Fling Cluster (sounds more like a sale at the mall than a dog show circuit) in Lewisburg WV with the Beckley West Virginia Kennel Club and Magic Valley (wonder what they grow in the Magic Valley) Kennel Club hosting a four day fun fest. Also opening for business tomorrow is the Progress City Dog Show Cluster. Progress City would be Decatur IL as designated by the Champaign Illinois, the Sandemac, Mattoon Kennel Clubs., who also have four shows planned.

Rite Of Spring

Three cities will host three day events, Friday through Sunday. In Bear DE the Wilmington & Penn Treaty Kennel Clubs host, in Montgomery AL, the Anninston Montgomery, & Cahaba Valley KCs will present, and in Beaumont TX, it’s the Baytown and Beaumont Kennel Clubs entertaining us.

Hula Pug

Traditional two day affairs are planned for Lincoln RI (South County KC), Chesapeake VA (Chesapeake VA Dog Fanciers Association), Lake Waccamaw NC (Myrtle Beach KC), Vero Beach FL (Treasure Coast Kennel Club Of Florida), Birch Run MI (Progressive Dog Club Of Wayne County), Eaton OH (Fort St. Clair Kennel Club), Seward Ne (Seward County Kennel Club), Grove OK (Tri-state & Bartlesville Kennel Clubs), Hollister CA (Gavilan Kennel Club), Walla Walla WA (Walla Walla KC), Chino CA (Lake Matthews KC), and Wailuku HI (Valley Isle KC of Maui).

That’s 43 all breed shows in 18 different cities. So are you going to go to an AKC dog show this weekend?
