Crumpet does Dog Show

Baby Crumpet took us to the Seattle Kennel Club Dog Show.

Comparisons to Christopher Guest's movie BEST IN SHOW is a cliche but so true nonetheless. Teams of ''handlers'' pamper over 100 breeds of pooche.

Highlight was the ''agility competition'' where fuzz butts slalom through an obstacle course. The show had to be postponed at one point because one contestant got stage fright and, hm, peed on the cross-bridge. Video here.

My other favorite ammenitiy was the doggie bathroom - which were fenced in areas filled with hay lined around the walls of the convention center where anxious handlers tries to coax their beloved (and expensive) poodles and pugs to relieve themselves before and after the competitions. Best in show indeed!
