In an incredible retro, Mad Men, kind of coincidence, all of our shows this coming weekend are traditional two day offerings. What’s next Beaver Cleaver as clean up boy?

The Charleston Battery

We start in upstate New York with the Saratoga New York Kennel Club & Glens Falls Kennel Club setting up in Queensbury. Dress warmly, boys & girls. Next Mid Atlantic residents can head to Doswell VA, 75 miles south of DC for the Middle Peninsula Kennel Club Of Virginia two shows. Continuing on down the coast to one of our favorite southern cities, Charleston SC for the Charleston KC’s weekend in the suburb of Ladson. Head even further south to Ocala FL and join the Greater Gainesville Dog Fanciers Association for much awaited warmer temperatures.

Texas Longhorn

Moving inland our first stop is Erie PA where the hometown Erie KC stages a pair of shows, or further west in Grayslake IL you can spend Saturday & Sunday with the Park Shore & Chain O’Lakes Kennel Clubs. In the heartland there is the St Charles Missouri Kennel Club in Lake St Louis MO It’s gumbo & Greyhounds in Alexandria LA with the Alexandria KC or Longhorns and Lhasas in Abilene TX with the Abilene Kennel Club.
San Francisco's Cow Palace

It’s 1,000 miles from Abilene to San Bernadino CA where the Orange Empire Dog Club will give us two and a world away in San Francisco where the Golden Gate Kennel Club does it as only the City by the Bay can with a very upscale show in an arena named after bovines. Because there are no four day clusters and because we have shows distributed evenly around the nation, we expect there to be great dogs at every venue. It’s another great AKC dog show weekend. So pour yourself a Manhattan and prepare yourself for the kind of fun you had when Eisenhower was in the White House.
