We had warned you that this month would be chockablock full of shows. We shall do our best to keep you on top of everything. We don’t promise we won’t have a few typos and errors along the way, just that we will get your more, faster than anyone else.

Nine Florida Shows in Ten Days

We are already underway this week in Fredericksburg VA where the Northern Neck Kennel Club Of Virginia opens a five day stand today. They will give us one more tomorrow, then the Greater Fredericksburg Kennel Club will give us two more before the Chesapeake Kennel Club Of Maryland closes on Sunday. If five shows seem a lot, a visit to Brooksville FL will seem like a marathon. The Manatee Kennel Club gets the ball rolling tomorrow on a ten day visit to the Sunshine State. They are partnering with the Clearwater, Inverness Florida, Tampa Bay, & Pasco Florida Kennel Clubs to give us nine shows, running Thursday through Sunday the 24th. Don’t show up Tuesday as that’s the day everyone is taking a break.

For those of us with less stamina, there is a four day weekend (Fri-Mon) to be had in Fitchburg MA with the Greater Lowell & Merrimack Valley Kennel Club,s, and three days (Fri-Sun) in Hamburg NY courtesy of the Kennel Club Of Buffalo and theAshtabula Kennel Club or in Puyallup WA courtesy of the Tacoma Kennel Club, the Puyallup Valley Dog Fanciers, & the Sammamish Kennel Club (Sat-Mon).

Finally, tradition Saturday/Sunday fare is available in Starkville MS with the Golden Triangle Kennel Club Of Mississippi and in Sinton TX brought to you by the Corpus Christi Kennel Club. So eat a nice meal, get, a good night’s rest, and them head on out to visit as many AKC dog shows as you can over the next ten days.


  1. F'burg show. A very scant report, but the Group winners were the Deerhound, the Puli, the Black Standard Poodle, the toy poodle, the boxer, the class Peke, an oh oh, can't remember who the terrier was. BIS was the black standard poodle. I got there late, it was cold in the building, and I didn't get a catalog.

  2. Whoops, the toy poodle was second! Duh.
