2010 IKC Chicago Dog Show

Recently I went to the dog show at McCormick place in Chicago. I highly recommend it - a lot of fun, especially if you bring kids. The fun isn't the judging or the agility contests (which are cool) but involves walking around looking at all the breeds as they are being groomed.


Many of the dogs were in curlers of some sort as they prepared for the show but this one seemed particularly sad.



These two cracked me up - it was the "before and after" as the dogs prepared for the show. You wouldn't believe the attention and effort that the owners lavished on these animals.



Here is a movie I made with all of my photos. If you can't see the movie a link is here.

What's with the ears?

Good movie - you should put a song in it or something though.

Last time I put a song in there and then you tube stripped it out because they recognized it and then flagged my movie for illegal content. Maybe if I picked something more obscure or something like that...

Ha everyone is doing the equivalent of curling their hair for those dogs and they spend a ton of time grooming them with various products. That one dog looked sad.

Here's an idea for background music you can use for the video-

It is funny I think you can do music about 10 seconds in any context for free and then up to maybe 30 seconds or so you tube lets it slide and then they "flag" you and take it out

Probably I have some obscure stuff that you tube wouldn't recognize but you wouldn't want to watch dogs to that. I was thinking Pelican or something like that.
