Rose City Classic Dog Show, grooming time

 

The Rose City Classic Dog Show is a major Northwest event, attracting dogs and owners from a wide region and multiple states. The 2015 show took place at the Expo Center. It had some fabulous demonstrations of agility course athleticism. I would rather watch dogs jumping hurdles and running a slalom course than watch football any day. These are two pictures I took with my GoPro, which dogs feel comfortable with, since it is such a tiny camera. There were also some very sophisticated multimedia recordings going on, covering every participant in the agility shows, not to mention the photo booths that always populate shows.  (Click on each photograph to see a larger picture on a separate picture page

Dog shows are one of my favorite subjects to photograph

I had a lot of fun at the Seattle Kennel Club Show yesterday (March 8, 2014) at the Century Link Exhibition Center.
