It is hard to tell who enjoys the sport of adoring dogs more…the dogs who adore people or the people that adore dogs. We were able to capture some adoring eyes at the Fall Mountain Classic held at the beautiful Allegany County Fairgrounds in Cumberland, Maryland. Over 500 dogs representing 122 breeds were shown each day of the 3-day show.

Many dog show handlers grow up adoring their pet dogs or their neighbor’s dogs. Children as young as 9 can enter the sport of dogs in the show ring. Children and adults alike develop friendships with other like-minded exhibitors who travel to show their dogs. As you can see in the slideshow, these dogs truly enjoy showing and being with their adoring audience, be it family or spectator.

AKC dog shows now include the All-American dog in the sport of performance events. These All-Americans are also known as designer dogs or mixed breeds or mutts but it doesn’t matter what they are called to those that adore them. They enjoy all of the benefits that their purebred counterparts enjoy but with less fuss about having every hair in place.

Feel free to comment about your favorite picture. Have your pet parent let us know how you feel about going to dog shows. Is there a dog that you adore that you look for at the shows that you go to? If you happen to be in the slide show, be sure to ask Amelia for a copy of your picture as you adored your pet parent!
