When a Dog Show is More Than a Dog Show!

This past weekend was a HUGE weekend for dog events in Atlanta. We managed to make it to a few events, including the all-breed dog show in Jonesboro, Ga.

First, we stopped at the Havanese ring, of course!

In case you didn't know, Havanese come in all sorts of colors. Meet Cookie, above, and keep an eye out for her. We'll be following her progress all the way to the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship dog show, where for the first time, "class" dogs can compete. Cookie is entered in the 6-9 month class.

And another tip about dog shows... they also offer a great opportunity to shop for hard-to-find items.  Cosmo was ready to shop, and read on for some great finds! But first, that's our Canine Cool Hipster bag in the stroller with him. You can find out how to win one here.

We spent a lot of time checking out these nifty toys by FitPAWS, above,  from We think the peanut that Cosmo's sitting on and some of the smaller balancing discs and donuts would be great for pups starting out in agility so they can get used to various surfaces and types of movement.

We also met Johnny Boy, the famous corded poodle, who also is the cover boy on a new book on how to cord your poodle, coming out soon!

And finally, we stopped at the Pure Paws booth and picked up some extra shampoo. We tried the new H20 Shampoo that made Cosmo's coat super silky. We hear you can use in on human hair too. We'll let you know how that goes!

Then later in the weekend we headed to the USDDN Disc Dog World Finals in Cartersville, Ga. Stay tuned for more photos and fun from that event.

Now, let's see what everyone was up to this weekend!
