Here In New York for the Westminster
Tomorrow morning at 8:00, twenty three Rottweilers will go before Judge Roger R Hartinger. The catalog lists 18 dogs and 5 bitches. We will have the results up as soon as we can.
Westminster is one of only a very few AKC benched dog shows. This year, instead of a formal benching set up by group and breed, the dogs are clustered only in groups. If you are interested in a certain breed within that group, you have to wander about trying to locate individual dogs belonging to that breed. It is very disorganized and rather frustrating. On the positive side, Madison Square Garden is much cooler inside then in years past.
This is, as always, been an interesting experience and a lot of fun. You meet and see people from all over the US as well as the world who come to see this very prestigious event. A great deal of credit has to be given to Exhibitors expend a lot of time, effort and money in order to come to this show.
We will see what happens tomorrow.
