Selection Reminder: AKC/Eukanuba National Championship
DECEMBER 17, 2011

Saturday, Dec. 17 – AKC/Eukanuba National Championship

“What do you want? What do you want? What do you want more than anything in the world? Do you want the big blue ribbon?” Somewhere in Orlando right now some neurotic dog owner is giving his dog this pep talk, just like in the movie Best in Show, in preparation for this week’s AKC/Eukanuba Champ-ionship. The top dogs in their breed will go up against one another to win the elusive big blue ribbon that all of these handlers – erm, dogs – want more than anything in the world. There will be thousands of dogs, hundreds of vendors hawking dog-related goods and services, and probably more unintentionally hilarious moments than at your family’s Thanksgiving dinner. For true dog enthusiasts, though, the really good stuff takes place during the agility and obedience invitational events, in which the fastest and most well-trained dogs in their fields jump through hoops (sometimes literally) to wow the crowd. If you don’t want to wait until Feb. 4, 2012, to catch this event on TV, catch it live in Orlando this weekend while the real Best in Show is in town. Don’t forget your Busy Bee. – Erin Sullivan (8 a.m.-11 p.m., check schedule for specific event times at the Orange County Convention Center West Building, 9800 International Drive; akc.org; $20 per day)
