I love dogs.
Most of our friends have a dog. Well, thats not true. Most of our friends DON'T have dogs, but the ones who do, just have 1. We have 3, and I love it.
Samuel was rushing like mad tonight, trying to finish his school work ( yes he procrastinated and it went late into the evening) so that we could go down and watch the Westminster Dog Show's Best in Show winner.
And here is what a Sussex Spaniel looks like:
What a great looking dog. We were pleased with the selection. I was hoping for the Giant Schnauzer, and Samuel wanted the Scottish Terrier, but the winner was an acceptable choice.
Where as the poodle...not so much. I think we would have both groaned LOUDLY if the poodle won.
For all you poodle owners out there. I'm sorry.
I grew up with a poodle, it was my sister's, so its not like I just make a random judgement call. Yes Barnabus (Barney) was a piece of work. And no, I would never get one. At the same time, I had a yellow lab,Trotsky. (Don't ask. At the time I had just heard the name and loved it, later I found out the history, and was so embarrassed. I was a kid. Who knew?)
And so, if you watched the show, it was exciting, in spite of the fact that neither a beagle or a St. Bernard won, but exciting non the less.
