Anyway, the most exciting thing about last night’s show was that three new breeds were introduced into the AKC. The one that made me cover my head so I wouldn’t have to look at its slobbering jowls (and I love dogs!) was the Neapolitan Mastiff.
Watched part of the Westminster Kennel Club 129th Annual Dog Show last night. Allen and I love to watch it–not just for the dogs but for the handlers (for instance, there was some woman in a long, black skirt with a slit up the back but underneath it she was wearing a just below the knee white slip, which was plainly visible. Why? And I’m desperate to remember the name of a collection of short stories I read in which the narrators mother was a dog handler–can anyone help me out on that?). The movie Best in Show spoofed the whole thing perfectly.
I’m sure they’re sweet, wonderful dogs but those jowls are absolutely disgusting. I cannot even imagine how much drool slobbers out of them.
