3 October , 2012
I had been counting down the days until I could spend time with the Sighthounds at the Gotemba All Breed Dog Show held on August 26th , 2012. I was thinking about what it would be like when I left Tokyo’s steamy hot weather for the show. I was concerned about the conditions outside for the dogs. I got there and was immediately relieved to find that a tent set up for the show with a nice cool breeze running through it could keep us all comfortable enough. It was like paradise compared with the scorching summer weather in Tokyo. While my mind kept shifting to this and that, the dog show started. The stars of the show were 4 Afghan Hounds, 9 Borzois, 10 Italian Greyhounds, and 4 Whippets (in order of appearance, representing 4 breeds and 27 dogs.) They were all obedient, well cared for, and presented themselves wonderfully. Their handlers ranged from very young to middle school-aged children, and two professionals. Those young handlers with their Italian Greyhounds displayed great handling skills. They had their dogs under control when I touched the dogs to judge them. I know very well that Italian Greyhounds are not good at that. I saw their pleasure and felt that those IGs were having fun as they ran in the ring with their distinctive, high stepping and free gait side by side with their handlers. It was a nice and amiable dog show. I absolutely had a great time with everyone and every dog there.
I DO LOVE DOGS ! I AM TRULY HAPPY BEING WITH THEM !
