They’ve thrown out the first pitch in our California ten day marathon. Today’s event in Costa Mesa was the day one show of the Shoreline Dog Fanciers Association Of Orange County.

Kent Delaney’s final introduces us to many of the players we will see over the next fortnight. Today they were the Golden Retriever, CH Toasty’s Treasure Island, the Whippet, CH Sporting Field’s Bahama Sands, the Boxer, CH Duba Dae’s Who’s Your Daddy, the Scottish Terrier, CH Roundtown Mercedes Of Maryscot, the Affenpinscher, CH Tamarin Tug, the Standard Poodle, CH Dawin Spitfire, and the Old English Sheepdog, CH Bugaboo’s Georgie Girl.

We believe this may have been the Poodle’s first west coast appearance this year and what a coming out party it was, as the black Standard, Jetta, walked away with the set’s first top prize. Jetta, born in Canada and based in Florida, gives us a glimpse of the coming gathering of the best dogs in the world. For we dog folks, it’s like getting to open Christmas presents twice.
