Really fine shots.  Good use of the different lenses.  Several would 
make great news art for newspaper or magazine.

Ya gotta love the dogs.  They're all there, in The Moment.

The Owners/Handlers/Groomers/Sponsors/Officials?  Some from Mars, some 
from Outer Space.

But it's their life's dream so I can't really fault them.

If you love dogs and dog shows, try to rent the DVD of "Best In Show" - 
a tongue-in-cheek spoof "documentary" about the World of Dog Shows.  
Very funny.  And probably true in many ways.

Thanks for the Show.


(Tri-Color Border Collie - the Woody Allen of dogs; just too damned 
smart, thank you very much...)

a fine set of shots.

The difference between weekdays and weekends is phenomenal.  We went on
Saturday and at times could hardly move, which made getting half decent
shots a real challenge.  I envy you with the space you had to work with
around the benches. I dread to think what it's like on a Sunday.  We
have no intention of finding out - which means missing out on our
favourite breeds next year.  At least 'our' breed won it's group :-)

Thanks for sharing them.
