Senior Editor Christi McDonald previews some of the special events being planned for the pre-Halloween show weekend. From Sacramento, Calif., to Sioux Falls, S.D., exhibitors will have plenty of opportunity to showcase their dogs while celebrating the season. Find out which club will have a mobile radiology facility on site, and where a costume contest will help to support the efforts of concerned dog owners in one community.
Blogger-in-Chief Billy Wheeler will be in Pennsylvania next weekend sitting ringside at the Hatboro Dog Club, Devon Dog Show Association and Montgomery County Kennel Club shows. Terriers will dominate the entries, of course, and Billy has a hunch that more dogs from this Group will be entered at these shows than in all the Terrier Groups around the country this weekend. Get the numbers from Billy in today’s Back Story.
Many of this year’s top show dogs are featured in their own beautiful mini-websites on Best In Show Daily. Simply click on a banner ad to see the dog’s up-to-date show history, plus a slide show of photos that reveals exactly why it’s a top dog.
