AKC Dog Show at Cow Palace

I liked seeing all the dogs, but the show was very crowded. Most of the breeders had one or two of their dogs out of crate and were allowing people to handle the dogs. These "sample dogs" almost all looked tired and/or nervous and long-suffering, but maybe I was projecting. Heh.

I was fascinated by the fashion among the Chihuahua breeders to outfit their dogs' kennels with Chihuahua-sized couches, 4-poster beds, chaise longues, rugs, and the like. (And don't miss the deluxe fabric options.)
