I’m off to the Cow Palace…..

It’s nearly time for another Dog Show!!  Woohoo!!  I get another chance to show off……as you’ve probably guessed, I love to show off…..tee hee…..:)  This show is in San Francisco at a place called the Cow Palace, I’m very curious as to why it’s called the Cow Palace?  I haven’t been to San Francisco before so I’m very excited!

This show is different in a couple of ways……

The first thing that’s different about this show is that Dad is going to show me…..Mum’s taking a break, I think she’ll be on grooming and camera duty!  It’s going to be a boys event this time, just me and Dad in the ring…..:)  We’d better practice a bit more I think over the next few weeks……

This is one of my favourite pictures with my Dad :)

Another thing that’s different about this show  is that it’s called a Bench Show.  This time I don’t just get to go around the ring, I also stay at the show during the day and people can come to visit me.  It’s called ‘meet the breed’ and anyone can come and see all the dogs who are showing and check out all the different breeds…… This sounds like lots of fun.  It’s even how Cosmo’s family chose to get a Bearded Collie, they had the breed on their short list and went to this particular show a few years ago to meet some dogs from each breed.  Apparently they knew straight away that they wanted to get a Beardie when they met one.

I love to meet people so it’s going to be a really fun day for me.

I know that a few people who read this blog have said they’d love to meet me, if you’re in the San Francisco area on the 30th January between 10am and 4pm, come on down, I’d love to say hi to you…..:)

The final thing that’s different is that I’m not competing against Eric (my little brother) this time……I’ll miss you buddy, but I’m sure I’ll see you at another show soon…..:)

I wonder if I’ll get to do some pawtographs?  Ok, now I’m being silly, maybe one day if I’m famous though?  :)


  1. You’ll be an awesome ambassador for Beardies, Snoopy! Meet-the-Breed is just big kiss-fest! :} Best of luck in the ring, too. YBB, Turner

    • Hey Turner,

      I’ll do my best to be an ambassador, I’ll bring plenty of kisses and cuddles for everyone…..yay!! Shame you don’t live closer……we’ll really have to organise a chance to meet each other, it would be coooool!!

      Your Beardie Bud,

      Snoopy :)

  2. Love the picture of you with your Dad. You’re kind of fond of him aren’t you? Good luck at the show. Spike and Dru would love to meet you but I guess we’ll have to wait until you show at Westminster in NY :)

    • Show at Westminster? That’s the big league!! Well, I guess I need to aim hight!! Especially if it means I can meet Spike and Dru…..:) Oh, and yes my Dad is cool, I love it when he comes home from work each day, I get really excited, mum’s great, but Dad’s really cool!! :)

  3. Cow Palace? Maybe you’ll win because you have spots just like a cow! ;) We wish we could come see you but we live ALL THE WAY IN CHICAGO!

    • Ah, it’s a shame you live so far away, cos I would love to meet you guys, maybe one day……..:) haha, I never realised I looked like a cow, I’ve never met a cow, now that would be fun……wouldn’t it? :)

  4. How awesome! I can’t wait to see the video of Dad taking you around the ring. Can I have your Pawtograph?: )

    • Hi Rachel,

      Dad and I were at class practising last night, it was going really well until I spied mum and then got distracted…..doh!! Of course you can have my pawtograph……let me think how I’ll organise that one…….I wasn’t really imagining there was any demand……:)

      Woofs to the pack,

      Snoopy :)
