From California to the Carolinas and Wisconsin to Washington State, exhibitors will be heading this weekend to a considerable number of all-breed shows across the U.S. Blogger-in-Chief Billy Wheeler takes a look at the entries around the country (Alaska anyone?) to find out where the competition is likely to be stiff and the quality deep.
A sketch given to me by my niece several years ago is a colorful reminder of life’s simple pleasures. Though crudely drawn, the artwork demonstrates a clear point of view about the relationship between two people and one very special Sussex Spaniel. See for yourself how a 6-year-old expresses her love for dogs.
Be sure to check out Best In Show Daily’s many photo galleries, where you’ll find recent winners and candid snapshots from shows held near and far. Just click on Show Scene below the masthead banner, or select any of the images in the left-hand column of our home page.

Numbers, Flowers & Murals
By Billy Wheeler
I don’t know about you, but I’m overwhelmed by the numbers in my life. I still am trying to figure out how it is I have access to over 400 channels, yet there is nothing worth watching on TV. And when did it become necessary to use a calculator in the kitchen? Life was so much easier before I had to count calories, carbs and milligrams of salt. more
