I had a Norwegian Elkhound from the Vin Melca line.

Best dog I ever had, he was a lovable rogue.

Never miss it. I have a miniature poodle who isn’t very well groomed. Every year he sits with me as I watch and he looks at a lot of the dogs. I always point out his cousins who are so beautifully kept. Last year I told him I was going to send him to Oprah for a make-over! Poor thing.

Slim pickings then....I find the dog shows themselves somewhat interesting but the movie didn’t do it for me.

Devotees of public policy and sausage should not watch either one being made.

We used to watch the dog show with our Samoyed, Kodiak. He passed away a few years ago. We are very interested in getting a Shetland Sheepdog. Any owners, or breeders out there?

“They NEVER pick smooth red Dachshunds.... “

I have a Dachshund/Beagle pound pooch. She wins best of everything in my book.

I liked tbe Heebeejeebie or BVGV or whatever. And the white long-haired Maltese (?)

I could never own one of those long-haired dogs. Unless I kept all its fur shaved off. I am not one to travel with my dog’s brush.
