We have far fewer show opportunities this coming weekend than the last two, with 30 fewer shows this coming weekend than last. Happiily, we have one stop that is one of the premier weekends of the season.
Down in Houston, there will be over 7,500 dogs in competition over three days starting Friday hosted by the Houston, Beaumont, Galveston County Kennel Clubs. Adding to the fun are 24 specialty shows on Thursday. Another large entry is expected at the Portland (OR) Kennel Club’s two shows this weekend, with 2,000 plus dogs both Saturday and Sunday. Again several breed specialties will preceded the main events.
The remaining offerings are limited to traditional two day fare in just four locales, New York metro (Stormville NY) the aptly named Centre Hall PA in central PA, Medina OH, and Weston WI. So even though we can’t have quantity, we can have quality. They are all AKC dog shows.
