We went to the Golden Gate Kennel Club show at the Cow Palace this morning. Unlike most shows, this one is “benched”. The dogs and their people exhibit on benches for the whole day, so the general public can come up and talk to the people and admire the dogs close-up.
Seventeen years ago we went to the same show meet breeders, and we met Syntax’s breeder Ellen there.
Today we watched the judging of the long hair dachshunds in the ring, and then wandered through the three huge halls filled with dogs and canine accoutrement. Fun.
We also met up with Ellen again (after about 12 years), and talked to a few breeders.
There were a lot of cute puppy pictures around. I’m just saying.
