Salt Lake City

It took us so much time to gather up last week’s results that we find we are already into this week’s shows.  In the Northeast the action begins Friday in West Windsor Township with two limited breed offerings, the Delaware Valley Toy Dog Fanciers Association & the Garden State All Terrier Club. The all breed action debuts on Saturday with Bucks County Kennel Club in Erwinna PA 40 miles northwest.  Sunday it’s back to West Windsor for two days with the Trenton Kennel Club.  Do you think the two clubs might get together on a mutually convenient site?

Our Great Lakes offerings this week are  the Crawford County Kennel Club’s two shows in Bucyrus OH, 100 miles southwest of Cleveland, or the three shows hosted by the Badger Kennel Club & Janesville-Beloit Kennel Club in Jefferson WI 50 miles due west of Milwaukee.  Down here in the South exhibitors will choose between a weekend in Watkinsville GA, near the University of Georgia, with the Oconee River Kennel Club or two in beautiful Panama City FL with the Greater Panama City Dog Fanciers Association. 

In the Heartland, fanciers will once again be at the Purina Farms complex in Gray Summit MO.  The fun starts tomorrow for four days of fun with the Gateway Toy Dog Fanciers, the Spirit Of The Heartland Kennel Club, the Jefferson County Kennel Club Of Missouri, & the St Louis Dog Breeders Association.  Once again Texans have two choices of venues, the Caddo Kennel Club Of Texas in Marshall, 40 miles east of Shreveport LA, or keep heading 450 miles west on US 20 to Big Spring TX for a weekend with the Big Spring Kennel Club.

We do have a Mountain Time Zone site this week, South Jordan UT, just south of Salt Lake City, will be the place to be for four days with the Intermountain Kennel Club & the Utah Valley Kennel Club commencing tomorrow.  Our west coast shows won’t interfere with one another.  The Olympia Dog Fanciers Association’s two shows in Elma WA  are 1100 miles north of the Rio Hondo Kennel Club’s shows in Pomona CA.

The weather promises to be better this week in most venues (How could it be worse?)  So pack up the car, seek out your local show and spend some time with some of the nicest folks around and their beautiful AKC registered dogs.
