Dog DaysJx

The Ann Arbor Kennel Club hosted its 38th Annual All-Breed
Dog Show and Obedience Trials at the Monroe County Fair-
grounds on July 5 and 6. The show featured over 1,800 dogs and
dozens of breeds. Contestants competed rigorously for prizes and
American Kennel Club points. To decide on placement, judges
must carefully inspect each animal for physical abnormalities, as
well as observing behavior and obedience. After each check-up,
the dogs gait around the ring to show off their gracefulness.

Above, Clovercreek's Mark of a Dream, a parti-color cocker spaniel, and Trinity Special
Delivery, an A.S.C.O.B. cocker spaniel, are groomed by their showers before inspection.

Vegas, Nev. (far left) gets
H roughed up by Zodiak and
Betta, doberman pinscher
puppies who recently had
their ears trimmed.
Although the pups did not
compete, they must be
o trained from an early age
in order to stand a chance
at being show-quality later
in life. At left, an english
sprnger spaniel gets some
final cleanup before head-
ing out onto the judging
field. Showers often bear
", signs of wear and tear, put-
ting their well-groomed
pets' cleanliness ahead of
their own.
A judge checks the hindquarters of a dog (left), which is a nec-
essary procedure for every inspection. Judges typically begin
with the dog's teeth and move downward across the body,
checking for shortcomings in grooming or breeding. Above,
Tomahawke's Apach Honwe, the Canadian-American champi-
on Irish wolfhound, gets his teeth checked.
