On Sunday, May 5th, several GDCH members with their families and friends gathered at the lovely Neal Blaisdell Park on the shores of Pearl Harbor for the Working Dog Club of Hawaii show. (See the attached short video clip of the gathering.)
It was a surprisingly cool day, clear and sunny, for the 36 Working Dogs (Dobermans, Bullmastiffs, Huskies, etc) entered in the group show. Ten Great Danes, all girls, were entered in the classes 12 Mos. and Under 18 Mos, Amateur-owner-handler, Open, and Best of Breed. One of the puppies was scratched so she could rest (Kara is still growing fast–gained an inch in height over the last month!–and was limping slightly from growing pains.) The other nine girls did their stuff for show judge Vince Mulligan, a long-time breeder of Great Danes.
