Back from Cape Cod

September 15, 2009

We arrived on the Cape on Wednesday and it was a nice cool day and the set up went well.  This is a four day cluster Thursday – Sunday.  Thursday and Sunday are the Cape Cod KC shows and Friday and Saturday are the South Shore KC shows.  These shows average 1100 or 1100 hundred dogs I think.  A nice size show with a couple of specialities and this year hosted the Otterhound Club of America Nationals.   I had the pleasure of stewarding for the Otterhounds both Thursday and for their Nationals on Saturday.  As a rare breed you don’t get to see them often so it was a treat to see 50 of them in one place.

This dog Ch Scentasia’s Shake Rattle N Roll won the Nationals and I believe also won the group one day too.

Thursday after the show my friend Heidi picked me up and took me to her home in Brewster.  We had a great dinner!

I met Heidi back in El Paso years ago when she was my first Shorthair, Snert’s vet.  We have stayed in touch through the years and I was thrilled to be able to spend a little time with her.  I got to meet her animals, her Coonhound Frito even slept with me 🙂

Heidi’s turkeys are famous, they have even made the Cape Cod Times newspaper. 

Friday and Saturday were Linda’s shows and it was unfortunate the lovely weather didn’t hold…

 The weather cleared for Sunday’s show and even with the bad weather the New England exhibitors made the best of it.  I saw some very nice dogs and some great handling.  The Show committees really go all out with the Hospitaliy.  The food was great and they really take care of their people and it is always great to work with the folks from both clubs.  A job well done!  I can’t wait to come again.
