How to Show Your Dog and Win
This looks like a fun little number from the children’s section. Children love dogs! It’s timeless!
Well…yes and no.
The dogs themselves are timeless. The pictures of the people handling them are very, very dated.
There is also an example of the application for the American Kennel Club, dated July 6, 1974. (See below) They are all downloadable now.
The picture of the dog licking the boy’s face (below) is gross. Many people will find it adorable, but that tongue is HUGE and he went for the eyeball. No thanks. (Before anyone gets upset – no, I would not weed it based on that. It’s just a personal observation.)
Dog shows are still popular, and books about dogs are a sure win in public library children’s departments. Books about how to show your dog are a great idea, but you can do better than this! Update!
