Amanda mentioned in a comment yesterday that there was a Siberian Husky named Cinnar who had won Westminster with an ear injury. I did some digging and found his webpage. Cinnar was the Westminster BIS in 1980.
Empty Talenti gelato containers hold almost exactly 1 pound of ground meat (or ground organ blends). If you were curious.

Lady who thought that practicing distance sit/stays in the middle of the main aisle for traffic with your dog on a retractable leash was a good idea: you are bad and you should feel bad. Retractable leashes are never, ever appropriate at an indoor dog show, even after hours. Shame on you.
“I think we are drawn to dogs because they are the uninhibited creatures we might be if we werent certain we knew better. They fight for honor at the first challenge, make love with no moral restraint, and they do not for all their marvelous instincts appear to know about death. Being such wonderfully uncomplicated beings, they need us to do their worrying.” — George Bird Evans, Troubles with Bird Dogs

In the mean time, I’ve been reading http://mushbaby.com and dreaming about a dog scooter.
