Dog Show pics

There was a small dog show at the campground that I back onto this past weekend so I spent Sun afternoon with my camera:

Finn (I think his name was) the shepard was the first dog I met. He was very shy but did allow me to take his picture.

Two Boxers waiting patiently for their turn in the ring.

This boxer got a medal in the Best of Group category.

This little BMD pup was being such a good girl, very patient.

A doberman.

A Shilo Shepard.

The Great Dane with the cape on accumulated many medals this weekend. Beautiful dog.

The Brindle didn't understand why he couldn't run a play with the other dogs.

Mom are we done yet, I am bored.

Veteran cocker, 12 years old and still in the ring. Can understand why.

This little sweety is pretty and knows it.

Beware of the Shilo Shepards, they will drown you with slobber :laughing:

Mini Aussies.

This is a mystery dog, I know the lady told me what it was, but I have totally forgotten. Love the ears :cloud9:

"I know I can make it, just a little bit higher"

"How do you do"

Good thing the grass is mowed otherwise the judges wouldn't be able to see these guys :laughing:

Saved the best for last, the malamute, huskey and rotties :cloud9::lovestruck::cloud9::lovestruck:

This is a female malamute, two years old. Her two male companions were left at home so they are not being shown. According to her owner, she rules the roost for the most part, until the larger of the males has had enough, then he will let her know.

This gal has a huge prey drive so the owner had to stay back until ring time. She also wanted to rule the Shilo Shepards, who were positioned in front of the ring area.

Of course there were dogs coming and going and the owner did a wonderful job of distracting her girl when a dog went by, no problems, you wouldn't even know she was dominant.

The siberian huskeys were beautiful :lovestruck::cloud9:. There was gal there who had the two different eyes, she won a medal in the Best of Group. The owners are planning to breed her with their male once she gets Grand Champion status. She is currently 2 years old. The second grey sib is the male. The two grey ones are sledded in the winter.

Didn't talk to the brown sib owner.

And my all time favourites the rotties: These are the sweetest, most lovable dogs :cloud9::cloud9::cloud9:

1. The female: I got to meet the female outside the ring. She leaned on me, fell over on her back and wanted belly rubs and if you didn't do it quick enough, she would jump up and give kisses all over your face :laughing:


2. Rottie pups getting used to dog shows.

3. Daddy of the young male rottie that stole my heart.

And my all time favourite: Young 9 month old male rottie

This young male is already 98 lbs :eek:. He is just like the other rotties that the breeder has, THE BIGGEST LOVE BUGS!!!!!

This guy thinks he is still a small baby, he actually thought he could climb on lap when I bent down, but he ended up walking over my back :D It was very hot and muggy out, so he gave me a quick wash with his tongue:D :cloud9: Such a good boy.

The Mystery Dog is a Picardy Shepherd.. they are very very rare in this area. Most are imported from France (the actualy breed name I believe is Berger Picard). There were 2 at the seminar I went to this winter, gorgeous dogs, look like they are out of a Disney Movie!! Great Pictures! Looks like it was interesing day!

Gorgeous dogs L4H!!! Just beautiful!! :cloud9: I can't pick a favourite though. I would have been in heaven seeing all of those pooches!

wow! What a wide variety of breeds! its so nice to see them all, what beautiful dogs. but I have to agree about the Saluki- thin as a rail! :(

September 16th, 2008, 09:54 PM
I agree with everyone else. That Saluki needs to gain some weight. I would think being that thin is bordering on abuse. I just checked out other pics of that breed. None of them had hipbones sticking out as much as that poor thing does. How :sad:.

I can't believe the judges would even allow such a skinny dog into the show :sad: There were greyhounds at the dog show I was at and although they were skinny enough to see their ribs, they had a very good layer of muscle over their hip bones.

I had a great time at the show.

I was surpised there were not alot of breeds maybe because it was not CKC or AKC? Somebody mentioned European???

14+: I picked my favourite based on personality. The Rotties were the most lovable, friendliest dogs. You could tell they were well loved by their breeder and the dogs loved him.

beaglemum: no beagles, no goldens.

I know! Should have asked, but everybody was so busy prepping or showing that I didn't want to disturb them too much.

You are a reeeeally good photographer. In many of the pictures you capture a real intimacy between you and the dog, like the dog is really looking right at you and time stood still for a second. I know nothing about photography at all, but as a layman one can always appreciate something special. Are you a pro? If not, you should pursue it...
