Not going in person for the first time in many years. I am enjoying the live stream - missing my two watching partners. My English Pointer Stanley LOVED watching Westminster (he was a grand baby 32 generations over from Sensation the logo of the Westminster Kennel Club) maybe he thought it was his duty.
Anyway PoodleKid doesn't care. Last year when I attended Westminster I met up with old friends and chatted about possible new breeds to explore - became enamored with a Border Terrier and an Irish Terrier. Little did I know that I would lose both my dogs a month later and that the dog that would take over and heal my broken heart was being born on that day hundreds of miles away and was a mini poodle.

I wasn't planning to since I was expecting to leave for class in a little while, but I just got notice that classes are cancelled so now I am actually looking for something to do. One thing I want to find is video of my friend Linda Brennan with her teammate Heart winning the obedience freestyle. I just found the video of Linda's beautiful fun routine with Heart. Here is the link. https://www.westminsterkennelclub.or...lts-2019-video
I managed to catch a rerun from last night and only the herding group. That said, a breathtaking group of dogs. I had never seen a Pumi before nor a Norwegian Buhund. The collies were magnificent. Winner was not the Vegas favorite. A Bouvier, named Baby Lars, owner/breeder/handled, my favorite combination took the group.
Nice Fox Terrier and congrats to them, but did any of you see Linda Brennan and her lab Heart doing their obedience freestyle demo? They are such an awesome team, having won the obedience all four years it has been offered. In the world of six degrees I am very lucky that Linda is my trainer's trainer. I have also done several workshops with Linda and Betsy Scapicchio with Lily and Javelin. They are both great trainers and have lots of fun with their dogs. I was so happy to see Linda have the chance to show what a great obedience team can do to a big audience.
