We went to a dog show today. I love going and seeing all the different breeds, They are all beautiful, or almost all. And the owners love talking about them. It's especially fun seeing some of the ones I will never own. Like the different mastiff breeds. This is a picture of my niece's hand holding a mastiff's paw. His paw is bigger than her hand. He weighs 230lbs. He isn't quite to full size yet.
Fun black miniature poodle. We saw a man go by carrying a white one. It was so white and fluffy, Penny thought it was cotten candy.
My niece was really excited to see this dog. It's a Xolo. A primitive breed from Mexico. They were thought to be extinct, but a few were found and now they are breeding them. It only has a patch of hair on top of it's head and at the tip of it's tail. It has a "hide" rather than skin. I didn't like the way it felt. My niece thought it was cool. It was the only one of it's kind at the show.
Irish Wolfhound. You can see how tall he is by where the waist is of the lady holding him. These are the tallest dogs.
This Shibu Inu had it's own umbrella and cot to lay out of the sun. It's fur was really thick. They are from Japan.
My niece was excited to see these Pharoh hounds. Her dog, Tanner, is an 1/8 Pharoah Hound. We found out when we did a DNA test on him last year. He looks like a minature Pharoah hound. He is also half Chihuahua and 1/4 poodle.
