Dog Show Sunday

Bull Terrier smiling
 
It has been a blue moon since I have been to an All Breed AKC dog show. I used to be an avid dog show fan, at least the ones in our area. But as life happens, interest change.

Usually my Sundays have been quiet affairs, hanging around the house in my pajamas and  fleece socks, reading the paper. But I decided to mix it up a bit so Jim and I took Katie to breakfast first and then to Jim Willis Park for the dog show. It was a gorgeous, crisp fall day, not a cloud in the most blue sky.

You took some great photos! So happy when I scrolled down to the chihuahua and the yorkie. :) If I was younger and had more energy I'd love to have a Border Collie. They require a lot of exercise I hear. They are such beautiful dogs. Really, all of these are. You did an awesome job capturing them. Bet that was fun. :)

They are all so cute, but I didn't see a Sissy dog beagle there? So sad. Thanks for taking me along to see all the cuties. Richard from My Old Historic House.

Did you take all of those pictures? They are really great! I love dogs, we have a mixed breed 7 year old named Mojo. He's awesome :) (says his proud mamma). I love the picture of the huskey, they are so beautiful!
