Once again, fanciers in the Northeast & Mid-Atlantic will have few choices about where to get their dog show fix this week. The lone offering is in Milton NY where the Monticello New York Kennel Club & the Saw Mill River Kennel Club will set up for three days beginning Friday. There is one more show on the eastern seaboard, but you will have to travel all the way to West Palm Beach FL to participate in the Palm Beach County Dog Fanciers Association’s two all breed shows this weekend. Terrier & Toy enthusiasts should get their early for Friday’s Everglades Terrier Club & Toy Dog Club Of South Florida limited breed shows.
Here in the Mid-South we have four all breed shows outside of Nashville, in Franklin TN, hosted by the Nashville Kennel Club & the Tullahoma Kennel Club Of Tennessee. In the Mid-West, you can choose between two with the Logansport Kennel Club in Auburn IN or two with the Columbia Missouri Kennel Club in the Show Me State. Next door in Kansas, the Garden City Kansas Kennel Club will give you three chances starting Friday. The action is already underway for a Texas size dog show weekend in San Antonio TX with the Alamo Area Toy Dog Club’s limited breed warm up today for the Kennel Club Of Greater Victoria & the San Antonio Kennel Club four all breed shows.
The lone west coast offering is in Seattle WA with the Seattle Kennel Club. I have to admit that it would be difficult to choose among Palm Beach, San Antonio, & Seattle for a dog show vacation. I promise that if you decide to visit any of theses shows, you will have a great time with the people and the dogs and you might even get a chance at some great shopping and a wonderful meal.
