"What Westminster dog show?


Just throw the stick, will ya!"
So might the happy Golden Retreiver, Rufus be saying here to his owner, Doug Lamy, on the beach at Point Hudson. To Rufus, Best in Show might only mean how far the next stick is thrown.

This is the third in a series of images taken downtown during the beautiful winter day we had on Saturday.

Looks like you were having fun watching Rufus ... but I'd wager that Rufus pegged his "fun-o-meter" LOL!!

This is a beautiful dog and in his element. I watch the dog shows when I remember they are on.

Had fun with my daughter's dog and her boyfriend's dog at Magnuson Park and Whidbey Island...Bibi is afraid of the water, so just watched from the shore... I love to watch dogs enjoy themselves. They're so into the moment.
