A week at a dog show is a long time to have to absorb everything a show the size and magnitude of the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship has to offer – and I haven’t. The first two days home were spent in a coma-like sleep, but now comes the hard part: Making sense not of what I saw, but of what my “radar” has been telling me. While I figure out why I think we may be at a tipping point in our sport, I’ve thrown together a quick video that doesn’t begin to do justice to the dogs I saw in Orlando. Let’s face it. Mary Bloom, Lisa Croft-Elliot, or Jeff Hanlin, I’m not. That I even figured out how to take the lens cap off my new camera tried for the very first time at Eukanuba is, I think, a good start, but mastering this Sony wonder-camera is a daunting task. Go easy on me.
The next several blogs will be sharing my Eukanuba experience. Until then…….
