One thing most people don't know about me is that I love dog shows! Let me clarify: I love watching them on tv, not participating in them. During Thanksgiving, NBC broadcasted the National Dog Show out of Philadelphia. I get a kick out of seeing all the different breeds. They seem like characters in a story to me-- I especially loved the wire-haired dachshund. He looked like he should have a pipe in his mouth, kind of like Sherlock Holmes:
I wish I had a better photo of him! And then there was the record-setting Wire Fox Terrier who won the whole thing for the second year in a row!:
I think maybe it's their faces, which look like they have groomed beards, that I love so much! I didn't get to see the whole show because there was football to watch, and that meant I missed the herding dogs which is where the collies were. I think they will always be my favorite because of Ellie! Check out the website link to see all of the dogs that were entered.
