One of the things that I’m loving about the AEC trade fair is the opportunity to meet and chat with many amazing and interesting people, and of course, I also love meeting their amazing dogs. From vendors’ dogs and horse show dogs to evenĀ dog show dogs, the AECs are trotting with happy canines of all shapes, sizes, and ages. Here is just a small sampling of the furry friends I encountered this weekend:

Some honorable mentions who I wasn’t able to get suitable snapshots of due to a) blur-inducing hyperactive puppy wiggles, b) getting so overcome with the “awwwww”s that I forgot to take out my phone, or c) all of the above:

  • Fuzzball the Zest booth’s spokesdog.
  • Ace the howlin’ Husky mix.
  • Oscar the Dachshund (who proved during the Weatherbeeta Dog Show that he can also do a smashing imitation of a penguin).
  • Einstein the Corgi puppy.
  • Corgis. Corgis everywhere.

Go Dogs. Go Eventing.
