Two photos from the IKC show

I wasn't sure in which forum to put this...
Here are 2 photos from the IKC show on Feb. 22. One is of part of the "golden retriever section". It's amazing what a madhouse it is. Being a benched show, it stayed crowded like that all day.
The other is of the long sit in obedience. There were people 4 or 5 deep all around the ring. NOT a good place to show an inexperienced dog!
But the show is a great time!

Crowded Obed shows like that separate the big-dawgs from the puppers real fast! :-)

Was the top picture taken from the food court? I was watching the sitting, I just loved the way the handlers brought the dogs in told them to sit and they walked out of the ring, that was just amazing. I loved the whole show, I which we had more throughout the year.

Looks like a fun event to see. Must have been interesting with all the stuff going on and all the beautiful dogs.

yes, it was taken from the second floor food court by a friend of mine who was at the show. I thought it was a cool photo, really caught the flavor of the show!
