Mt Diablo CA
This week we have one of the largest shows of 2009, the Del Valle Dog Club of Livermore. The club wil hold their two shows in the shadow of Mt Diablo this coming Sunday and Monday in Pleasanton CA near San Francisco. The two all breed shows have nearly 5,000 entries and there are 17 specialty shows on Friday & Saturday to sweeten the deal.
Mt Rushmore SD
If you can’t make it to the Bay Area, there is ample opportunity for dog show gluttony elsewhere. We have four day clusters in Rapid City SD starting Thursday from the Rapid City Kennel Club and in Springfield IL beginning Friday courtesy of the Mattoon, Sandemac, & Illinois Capitol Kennel Clubs. Three day weekends are up for grabs in West Springfield MA with the Albany & Troy Kennel Clubs, in Buena NJ from the Gloucester County & South Jersey Kennel Clubs, and in Cumberland MD presented by the Laurel Highlands Kennel Association & Upper Potomac Valley Kennel Club, all kicking off Friday.
Folks who only have two days to spare can visit the Tri-star Kennel Club Of Williamson County, Tennessee in Nashville TN, the Lawton Dog Fanciers Association in Lawton OK, or the Bell County Kennel Club in Belton TX. That’s 24 chances to see an AKC all breed dog show this weekend. Come see some of the rarest animals on the planet!
