Westminster Dog Show 2009

The Westminster Dog Show starts tonight! I love watching the dog show. Loved that beagle that won! And darn it, doesn't some silly poodle ALWAYS get in there? Sorry - I'm not a poodle fan.

Since I am still in allergy hell but am going on to work, I expect that I'll be curled up on the couch later watching the dogs.

i'm not a poodle fan either but have you read "travels w/ charlie" by john stienbeck? it's about his travels w/ his standard poodle charlie. i kind'a liked charlie, even though he was a poodle

Is "Travels with Charlie" like Marley and Me? I haven't and I won't go see Marley and Me.

Several years ago the Best of Show was a German shorthair. What a beautiful dog. When the dog went into its pose for one of the preliminary rounds, I told Pat that was going to be the champion.

I have a special place in my heart for German shorthairs, because of a German shorthair, Sheryl and her family had years ago. Don't tell Casey, a black lab pitbull mix, or Skippy a something and caffiene addict mix, I don't want to hurt their feelings. Especially Casey, he's my buddy.

"travels w/ charlie" isn't like "marley and me." it's been years since i read "travels w/ charlie." kenny has it, or had it, so i should ask to borrow it again to read it again. the story was mostly about the travels, people the see along the way, places and sites. charlie happened to be along for the ride.

i have a special place in my heart for german shorthair pointers too to because of lady. she was a wonderful family dog.

you should read "marley and me." it is so funny that you'll laugh out loud reading the beginning. you'll cry at the end but the book is wonderful! the movie was ok. i don't regret reading the book or seeing the movie. crying like a baby and all!

Like I've said before, I haven't gotten over Old Yeller and that was 40 years ago.
