My first Dog show
« on: June 03, 2007, 07:49:06 am »
Yesterday and today I went to the local AKC dog show.Holy cow I got to tons of big dogs!!!!Of course my favorite was the Saints :D There was only 3 of them though :( One was an 8 mth old male and he already weighs 120,and I thought Tub was big.I got to meet a bunch of Newfs for the first time in person.One lady came up and asked if we help hold a couple of her dogs while she showed one.Then she would come back and switch dogs,too cool!!! I was surpised that they were smaller then Saints,I thought they were very close to the same size.There was also a brown Newf,so that was a new site for me.They said there are also grey ones,but I didn't get to see one of those :( And the Danes,well there was a ton of them.They are soooooooooo tall!!! I also got to meet a couple Bermese Mtn dogs.Oh they are too adorable.The lady asked if we wanted to meet the pup.Like we could say no :)He was 6 mths and so cute.It was hard not reaching for my wallet and saying sold ;D The Great Prys are very pretty in person too.It was a small show,but I'm glad I went so I got to see so many of the different breeds in person,now I will quit rambling ;)

I've yet to meet a Saint, or Bernese Mt. Dog.

My sisters neighbor owns a female Pyr, met a Newfie in a parade, I've had my run ins with Danes at PetsMart and flea markets.

My dream breed is a Greater Swiss, I really want to meet one of them ;D
