Recently a group of us from Colorado went to Albuquerque for the Southwest Futurity weekend. We always enjoy going to those shows. Well maybe not the going so much - it is early April after all and for Coloradans that sometimes means driving through a snowstorm to get there -- but once we’re there we enjoy it.

Most of us take dog shows for granted. Not just the Colorado dog fanciers, but most all dog people. Many of us have a short list of shows that we always at least consider attending. Our decisions are made mostly by who the judges are. Others routinely attend certain shows regardless of who is judging.

Regardless of how we decide which show to attend, we take for granted that the shows will go on. That’s not always true. There are clubs that used to be a part of the fabric of our lives, but no longer exist. Some of the shows we remember fondly aren’t there anymore. That’s the new reality.
