People of Dogs Shows is a humorous look at the people who participate in dog-related sports around the world.
Who among us does not have a win photo that does not show us (or our dog) in the most flatering light? Bra straps showing? Stuffed toy sticking out of your back pocket that makes it look like you have a tail? Ring numbers growing out of your head? The dreaded porta potty “insert big win here” backdrop?
Is part of your weekend fun at dog shows comprised of playing fashion police and wondering “what the heck was that individual thinking when they got dressed this morning?”
Do you (or someone you know) often get told that you look JUST like your dog?
Have you ever seen a 400 pound leather-clad tough guy at a show holding a perfectly coiffed maltese ringside?
These are just some of the giggles that we hope to share on this humble though hopefully humorous site.
Rest assured that those of us behind the scenes here at PODS* are dogsport junkies who spend a lot of their own time chasing their canines around multiple venues and spending any spare time at dog shows and trials peoplewatching. We will keep our tongues planted firmly in our cheeks and our liver tucked behind our armbands as we set about sharing our funny photos (and hopefully yours) with others. We will blur faces and other parts where needed for discretion and those who submit photos can remain completely anonymous if that is their wish.
The next few days will bring lots of changes to this site! We will kick things off with a contest to encourage submissions so start digging through your old photo albums and/or your memory sticks! Fabulous prizes WILL be awarded for “Best in Show” or “High in Trial”!
