I hesitated before writing this because I really don’t want to offend but I finally thought that it might be an interesting subject to discuss.
I watched the dog show this week and while the dogs were wonderful to see (yay Stump!) I was really shocked by the clothes that the handlers wore. Before you say anything – I realize that it is a messy job and that they are working the dogs all day – but there has to be something that is practical and not dowdy. There was one lady wearing a tight suit to run the dog around the ring – she looked so awkward. And a lady in a full skirt wasn’t much better – it was so full that it was distracting. I thought that a pleated skirt might move really well.
If you’re going to be presenting your dogs at that level of competition I don’t think that investing in one practical but quality outfit is a bad idea even if fashion is not of any interest.
My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything. The perfect day: Riding a bike to the library. —Peter Golkin
