Oklahoma City Dog Show...

I was at the Oklahoma City Summer Classic dog show today.

It is being held at the Cox Convention Center in downtown Oklahoma City the rest of this week and through Sunday.

If you have never been to a dog show, this would be a great opportunity for you to do so and see almost 2000 dogs gathered for an event in one location. There are lots of things to see. Vendors are also there selling unique dog related items that range from dog toys to some very nice pieces jewelry.

Different things happen at different times of the day at a dog show.

Depending on what you would like to watch would determine the time of day that you would want to go.

Of course, you are welcome to stay all day if you wanted to.

If you want to see how the exhibitors get their dogs ready to be shown, then you should go early in the morning. You are welcome to wander through the 'setups' and watch the handlers get their dogs ready for the competition.

Different breeds show at different times of the day. If you have a favorite breed then you will want to know what time it shows. You will then want to make it to the appropriate ring so that you can watch the competition.

If you want to watch the group competition, then those usually start after lunch.

And of course, the Best in Show competition is last.

But if you just want to see lots of different types of dogs compete, then it is better to go to the show site earlier in the day.

Always remember...

Do not touch any dogs without permission.

And don't be offended if you are told "no". Untold hours are spent grooming these dogs and *mussing the do's*, before they have shown for the day, is very upsetting to the handlers.

I won't be there tomorrow, so I won't get to say "hey" to any of my friends.

Have a great Friday guys and I'll meet you back here...
