Got ? ( Good for travel to PCA, too.) I guess the east coast does have its privileges. WKC is really worth the trip! I've never been to a dog show where the exhibitors are friendlier or more generous with their time. (Told my dh I want my ashes spread in the benching area.) Last year I had such a particularly good experience with one Bedlington Terrier breeder, I almost wound up getting one of her retired show dogs! Alas, I am a poodle gal down to my soul. Besides, I can always get Chagall groomed like a Bedlington.
Just be nice.

He's the perfect color too! Wouldn't he look adorable????
Remember the nice Chinese Crested breeder who after I took a picture of him and his pup, plopped the little dog right into my arms and then happily allowed me to hand it to you so I could take a picture??
How thrilled Martha Stewart's Chow Chow's handler was that I recognized her before the dog and how kind she was to pose for photos with him right before the Chows went in the ring?? I like to think that we brought him good luck as he won BOB!! LOL!!
And how happy Alison Foley was to have her photo taken in the benching area with Vetset Kate Winsit after they won BOB and Kate was all banded up again?
The best part of the day for me was meeting London's co-owner, Beth Harris and how gracious she was, especially since we met her after the poodle judging. She was also extremely happy and grateful for the pictures that I sent her!! A real class act! I do hope we can meet up with her this year!
Given the benching conditions at MSG last year, I just can't get over how pleasant all of the breeders, owners and handlers were, taking time to speak with everyone. I still can't imagine how difficult it was to get those glorious poodles sprayed up under those conditions!!
cavon: Right you are!! I remember every second, and I still owe you for getting me chummy enough with Beth Harris for her to invite me to come see her. And for the breeder/handler allowing you to hand-off that Crestie to me, what a little bundle of unsurpassed cuteness that dog was! (Still laugh at our school-girl silliness scanning the crowd for Martha Stewart while sitting ringside on Monday night. Honestly, I just wanted to thank her for her trifle recipe!) Our encore attendance this year is sure to be even more fun. See you soon, girlfriend! Chagall can't wait, me either!!
LOL!!! and I just wanted to thank Martha for featuring Finnegan in her webpage, along with his little sister GRCH Bijou's Dare to be Different and his feline sisters and brother!! LOL!!
It was so much fun to bump into so many breeders/owners/handlers that I knew from dog shows and for them to stop us to chat!!
Of course, you recall that Malachy was my BIS pick and so that was another big thrill for me. Then to be at a show and have a Peke breeder offer me one of his grandchildren???? If I didn't have a big spoo and a persian cat to groom, I would have been sorely tempted!!!

Ohhh...I so wish!! That arena and all those people and agoraphobia are not a good idea. One day though I would love to go to Westminster and PCA! Hope you all have a grand time and enjoy Poodle overdose! I will pray that everyone's dogs are well immunized against the parvo going around, or that they've had titers done on their dogs. Best wishes for the health and safety of all the dogs at the show.

Take heart, I've seen people overcome incredible illnesses and circumstances to fulfil their dreams. IT CAN HAPPEN!
Just be nice.
