Aircraft Carriers in Bremerton WA
These past few weeks there have been a dearth of shows on the West Coast.  This coming weekend, fanciers near the Pacific will have their choice of four different venues.  In Central California, the Kern County Kennel Club will hold two shows in  Bakersfield.  If you have the time and stamina head to the Bay Area where there are four shows beginning Thursday in Vallejo CA courtesy of the Santa Cruz Kennel Club, Kennel Club Of Salinas, San Mateo Kennel Club, & Oakland Kennel Club.   Up in the Pacific Northwest the Peninsula Dog Fanciers Club will do two in Bremerton WA.   There’s even a deuce in Anchorage AK thanks to Tanana Valley Kennel Club & Alaska Kennel Club.

The East Coast will have it’s usual full contingent of shows with a big weekend in New Brunswick NJ beginning Thursday .  They’ll start with three limited breed shows (the Progressive Dog Club, the Non-Sporting Group Club Of The Garden State, & the Herding Group Association Of New Jersey) and follow with three all breed shows from the New Brunswick Kennel Club & the Bronx County Kennel Club (Anybody remember shows in the old Bronx Armory?)  There are five all breed shows this week in Raleigh NC hosted by the Cary Kennel Club, the Alamance Kennel Club, the Durham Kennel Club the Raleigh Kennel Club, & the Fayetteville Kennel Club.  It all starts tomorrow.

If you don’t leave near the Atlantic or Pacific your choices are limited to two in Dubuque IA with the hometown Dubuque Kennel Club or two in Fort Worth TX with the hometown  Fort Worth Kennel Club.  We can tell you any of these shows will have some of the most beautiful canines in the world.  Visit an AKC dog show this weekend.
