Even better....this the bench show! I haven't been to a bench show in yeearr's now.

That means that they have the breed's benched so people can inquire and learn about the breed and breeder's. Yes! Poodle's hear I come! lol

Oh PP, when you go to a UKC show you'll think its fun but just wait to you attend a bigger AKC show......its just awesome!! Even the reg AKC show's are impressive but the large entry one's don't even compare to UKC.

This Cow Palace show was my parents first time at a dog show back in 2003 I think. Wow were they in for a huge surprise. It feels like your in this underground world you never knew exsisted. Its so much fun. I wish I could take all you with me!

Ecspecially you and Britt....you guys are always saying there is nothing around where you live. Darn you guys are too far! lol

Lucky you! Its been years since I have been to a dog show myself!

I have only been to the AKC shows...sounds like a UKC show might be more up my alley.

The AKC shows I attended where INSANE with the amount of people and dogs...I would love to go to one that wasn't quite as packed with people, I don't mind wall to wall dogs! LOL

IPP there is an AKC show in Indy at the fairgrounds on February 14th.
The last one I went to in Indianapolis was just crazy with the amount of people! The ones in Muncie and Lafayette were a bit calmer, but not much! LOL

I seriously think I may try to attend a UKC show soon, I would love to see some parti-color poodles in confirmation or agility shows. Heck I would be thrilled to just meet some people who are close to me that love the parti's as much as I do.

Well after attending the Cow Palace show yesterday Im disappointed to say it was just okay. There wasn't a big turn out of Poodle's like I was expecting. It's been so long that I forget some breeder's don't enter because they aren't up for the bench part of the show. At a bench show if you enter your dog it has to stay benched from like 9 till 4:30 pm. Its a long day for exhibitors/breeder's.

I did however get some good pics which I will be posting soon. The only Standard Poodle breeder's that were benched were Graphic's and Grandeur. Those were the only dogs listed in the judging program except one Cabernet dog and I think the Cabernet dog was absent. I don't recall seeing it.

Pics to some soon for those that are interested.

Sorry that the show was just "ok" I personaly don't go to benched shows because of the benched part lol. I don't like to be stuck in one place all day ya know.

Too bad your not closer, the tail end of the florida circut is always good. Tallahassee is awsome, like a big fair almost. It one of my favorites, that and Perry GA in the spring. Wonderful. The week after Tally is our shows and then on to pensacola which sucks. lol.
