I really want feedback, so go ahead and post comments (but be nice: no biting). And please bear with me on the technical aspects; I've been a reporter for 29 years but am a complete neophyte in the blogosphere.
This is a great time to kick off, because this weekend, I'll be in New York for the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, which is Monday and Tuesday. How cool is that? I'm a huge fan of the movie Best in Show, which I own and watch at least once a month, and dog-show people tell me that the movie is dead on in capturing the characters and the atmosphere.
Remember the scene at the party the night before the show, where the poodle was wearing the tiara? Well, that party actually takes place, and I'll be there Sunday night. It's at the Tavern on the Green, hosted by a world-famous archeologist and daschsund afficionado, who has invited 500 humans and who knows how many dogs.
Each year there's a theme, and this year it's ancient China. The hostess's dogs will be wearing little Chinese outfits. She had paper lanterns made in China to resemble daschshunds. I'll be writing about it for Monday's Herald, and will try to post pictures here before then.
