Pictures From Sunday's Dog Show
« on: January 29, 2006, 02:31:17 am »
We had a great time at the Golden Gate Kennels's annual dog show in San Francisco on Sunday, it was a great event.  We unfortunately had to leave Drake and Yogi at home, but they enjoyed each others company.  We arrived just in time to catch the Newfoundland judging and we got to see our favorite breed strut their stuff.  Afterwards, we wandered around, eating lots of food, browsing through the many vendors and meeting many of the different breeds that were on display.  Of course, we had to spend some time at the Newfoundland booth and we got to talk to some of the breeders that we know.  We also got to meet a really sweet Brown Newf named Seamus.  It was great to see a lot of the artwork I had created for the 2005 Newfoundland Specialty and the Health & Rescue society.  It's one thing to create artwork but it's a whole other thing to see a complete stranger wearing it on their clothes.   Afterwards, we returned home to our boys.  We fed them some Prime Rib bones from the night before and then we took them swimming in the Bell Marin Keyes in Novato.  They quickly forgave us for leaving them behind to hang out with other dogs all day.  Enjoy the pictures!

Great shots!

I would so love to enter a benched show.

I've been to Westminster, but I've never shown where the dogs are benched.

:D

I love the swim shots too!

Here's some more shots from the show.  We had such a great time, Bench shows are the best!  Being able to pet the dogs and talk to breeders was wonderful.  It was good to see that there are so many dog lovers out there.  :)

Shoot!  Next year we HAVE to go up for it!  It looks like so much fun!  It also looks like it wasn't too crowded so it was easy to get around!  Maybe we should plan a BPO meet 'n greet next year!  Is it always on that weekend?

We went to the show on Sun. as well, but I forgot to bring my camera. It was the 1st time we had ever been to a dog show let alone a benched show and I have to say we had a blast. It was especially awesome being able to pet the dogs and talk to the owners about there dogs. We spent more time in the benching area than actually watching the judging. We're definitely going to go next year and I will try and not forget the camera.

It actually was pretty crowded, those pictures are a little misleading.  We got there early so we could see the Newfs being judged and the crowds hadn't arrived yet.  But within a few hours the place was PACKED!!!  But it was still a blast, free dog food and snack samples, free kibble scoops, tons of literature, tons of things to spend your money on.  That is a smart industry to get into, people were just shelling out the money right and left.  It is the same weekend every year and BPO meet & greet there wouldn't be too bad of an idea, but it isn't a great event to keep a crowd together in.   Whatever, maybe next year?  I'll be there, getting more kisses from Seamus!  ;)

Awesome pictures, I just messaged Newf Lover and said how those pictures make me want 3+ more newfs in our household. Can't wait for that time.

We were also at the show, benched with our 7 month old little Newfy boy Dozer.  And I guess I could insert BRAG here>

He actually took Best of Winners (2 points) on Saturday and Reserve Winners on Sunday. 

We were completely shocked!  Puppies rarely get a look, let alone the points, but the Judge seamed to really like what he saw.  We thought it would just be a weekend of "getting some ring experience and making it fun for him"  We were very pleasantly surprised.

None of our pictures of him in the ring came out, but here are a few others.  Grooming the night before the show and on the bench (red bib) with his littermate sister ready for the ring.  I'm anxious to see how his official photo witht he judge turns out   :D
