1st Governors Foot Guard AKC Dog Show

If you're a dog lover this is a great and historic AKC registered dog show in Hartford. Even if you're not a dog person, there should be plenty of interesting subjects for us to shoot with 140 breeds from about 1, 200 dogs being represented in this long running show. Entrants come from all over the U.S. and Canada to show their beautiful animals.
More info: http://governorsfootguard.com/dogshow/index.html
NOTE: There is an admission fee of $10 or $5 for seniors.
It's at the exhibition hall in the lower level of XL or Civic Center in downtown Hartford.
NOTE: If you haven't seen it yet, check out the mockumentary "Best In Show", a hilarious send up of the world and culture of competitive dog shows.

I'm sure a good time will be had by all.

NOTE: Here's a list of breeds for the Hartford Show, which occurs just 1 week after the Westminster Dog Show held at Madison Square Garden.

    A great variety of dogs of all shapes and sizes. It was a challenging shoot because of the poor lighting in the Exhibition Hall and the dogs that just move around a lot.
    However, it was a lot of fun and the exhibitors were all to happy to share their info and pleased to have their beautiful dogs. You have to admit, even a cat lover would have enjoyed coming to the show
