The Seattle Kennel Club held their annual dog show this past weekend at CenturyLink Field. There were approximately 1600 dogs registered for the events.

The organization began as the Queen City Dog Club in the late 1890s which transformed into the Seattle Kennel Club.

The show events were Confirmation, Junior Showmanship Obedience, Rally, Agility, Demonstrations, and Tours.

A dog must put its best paw forward to compete against peers in the day's events. That means grooming -- a lot of grooming, if one has a long coat. Just about all of the dogs are accustomed to the routine.

" Everyone thinks they have the best dog and none of them are wrong"
--W.R. Purche

At the show there were dog faces from Affenpinchers to Yorkshire Terriers. Small Chihuahuas' faces to large Mastiffs' faces. All lovable faces.
