My dogs at Westminster
My girl Adele resting in the hotel room after a hard day of showing at Westminster:

She didn't win her breed but she did get Reserve Winners, runner up in the non-champion females, a great placement for our girl who's just over a year old.

Our almost 2yr old boy Oliver, who's already a champion, as well as having a JH hunting title, showed in the best of breed competition and wasn't picked, but wore himself out anyway:

It's always amazed me how tired they get at a show. I've seen those two run hunting an hour straight and be more ready to go than after a few times around the ring. They like the attention and the chance to get some strange couch action...

My wife's there having an awesome time, while I stay home and work. I've got our new pointer pup Decker to keep me company though!

That is awesome, and they are some beautiful looking dogs.

So, as a dog show guy... do you like or hate the movie Best In Show?

noone who knows me will be surprised to find out that I have a funny story about that.

My wife and I have been in 'dual' bird dogs for 20 years together. She was raised by a mom who was a top breeder of show dobermans and I was raised that there were 2 kinds of dogs. Bird dogs and the neighbor's dogs, cuz if it ain't a bird dawg it ain't livin' here.
We've been in pointers for the last 10 years and know most everyone. A certain good friend of ours from canada is one of those canadian ladies who does not suffer fools gladly and furthermore does not care who knows it.
After 30 years in shows, she knew every old scandal and where every skeleton was buried. She also has really beautiful pointers, at least Christopher Guest thought so,because he bought a pointer from her.
Her stories were the germ of best in show and the sheer piercing accuracy of the portrayals while skirting libel and slander were amazing.
I could've introduced you to most of the real people that were portrayed in the film at westminster and you'd know each one on sight.
If you watch the mayflower show at the end, you can see our canadian friend showing her pointer.

I find it hilarious but I'm not sure I can name each and every kind of nut and sometimes this worries me....

Awesome looking dogs.

That dog show made my GF want to get a dog, so we are going to get one in the spring.
