Breakout Performances and a Favorite Long Walk

The Back Story’s Master Blogger Billy Wheeler has reviewed the results from his long Louisville weekend and takes particular note today of the breakout performances that caused people to sit up and take notice. Not every dog had its day, but a few surprises will have Best In Show Daily readers talking.

Senior Editor Christi McDonald shares with readers why long walks have become one of her favorite things about having dogs. For the health benefits alone, a 30-minute walk is like a magic elixir, boosting energy levels while elevating your mood, and it’s just as beneficial to your dogs. Thanks to their extraordinary sense of smell, each walk is very likely a whole new experience for them. And as they explore the world around them, you can enjoy a peacefulness that allows your thoughts to catch up with you. Just be sure to think long and hard about bringing your cell phone with you.

Best In Show DailyLouisville Breakout Performances

By Billy Wheeler

The Kentuckiana Cluster has always been a place for breakout performances. Last year the Boxer, GCH CH Winfall Brookwood Styled Dream, the Affenpinscher, GCH CH Banana Joe v Tani Kazari, the Pekingese, GCH CH PalaceGarden Malachy, and the Standard Poodle, GCH CH Jaset’s Satisfaction were the BIS winners. All four dogs finished 2011 in the Top Ten All Breeds, three in the Top Five.

This year I had my eyes peeled for dogs that would challenge the status quo, and I was not disappointed. First was a three-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier, Italian CH Lobotown Puppy. This “Puppy” is an impressive bruiser of a dog who managed to win Best of Breed two of the four days against formidable competition and cop a Group Three & Four. more

Best In Show DailyMy Favorite Things: There’s No Place Else I’d Rather Be

By Christi McDonald
One of my favorite things about being a dog owner was undiscovered by me until about eight years ago when I moved to California. It may sound like the simplest, most obvious thing in the world, but going for walks with my little pooches has become one of my favorite things about having dogs.

As show dog owners, I think most of us have constructed our dogs’ daily lives differently than the average pet owner. The dogs get exercised outdoors in whatever sort of setup we’ve arranged at home and, probably because we have multiple dogs, most of us just don’t think about putting a leash on them every day or two and taking them for a walk. But taking your dog or dogs out walking has more benefits than you can begin to imagine – for you, for your dog, and even for purebred dogs in general. more
