    My "full bred American Mutt" is wonderful! She goes with me everywhere and stays at the tack room while I'm at the ring. Never have quite figured out what she is - but I don't care! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img]

    You think people recognising your dog and not you is bad, all the grooms at my old barn called me Ishi because I was always yelling, "Ishi, come here, please!" So 1 started and then they all did it. Even the ones who didn't speak english well, just spoke to me in spanish calling me Ishi, and then my trainers, fellow barn members...
    But it's OK Ishi is a cool dog after all [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Here's my "horse show dog" - Mali, the American Eskimo. She's only been to 1 horse show (does that count?) but everywhere we go, we get stopped because she's so cute and fluffy and WHITE.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    When my dog gets around horsey poop (or something else that smells yummy - usually dead [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]) she likes to roll around near and usually on it! I can only imagine trying to keep that little white puffball clean! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] Not so dissimilar to your grey horse that decides that the best place for a nap is in the freshest pile of sh*t in the stall huh?

    Actually, believe it or not, I haven't bathed her in about 3 months! Eskies have weird dirt-repellent fur. If they get muddy, the mud crusts up on their fur, and falls right off. Good for keeping the dog clean - bad for keeping the carpet clean!! I'm amazed at how white she keeps herself. Best part is - no dog smell! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    I will have to say my Bernese Mountain Dog "Big Boy" gets a lot of attention when he goes to the shoes. He is 110 lbs of lap dog and loves everyone and everything. As for being the best behaved show dog ... I doubt it but surely the most friendly and gorgeous!

    Okay well I have two - Cleo is a 5yr old lab/shepherd/corgi/pitbull/boxer/bloodhound/ wellokaywedon'tknow cross....
    and Isis [pronounced eye - sis] is a four yr old supposed-to-be-pitbull-but-we-think-she's-a-cross,
    and they love to go to shows but Cleo pulls on the leash the whole time, and people are scared of Isis so they often stay home.

    They are wonderful doggy ambassadors. In the photo below the larger male is Angus and smaller female is Sydney (both altered). I look like Julius Cesaer walking around with one on either side. And they just turn into wiggling bundles of energy when people come over to say hello. Boxers really love people.

    Another great horse show dog is the Boston terrier. They are boxer personalities in tiny little bodys. At our shows here in San Diego, Otis is the official start box dog mascot. (sorry no photos of Otis)

    That's cute, I have an Angus and Shyloh, which is similar!

    They used to go to shows with me, until I stopped showing. They also would go to the barn with me, but Angus loved to jump in the irrigation ditch. He then (coincidentally) came up with Autoimmune Thrombocytopenia. Ack, long story. I'll shut up now.

    He is better though!

    He of course is a Golden Retriever!

    I LOFF LOFF LOFF Bernese Mountain Dogs. They're absolutely BEAUTIFUL. I've always wanted one!! One day, when I move out of my little apartment with a little yard and into a place where a dog can run around, I'll get one of those big boys. I can see it now - huge black (and tan and white) hairy beast with little white fuzzball running around the yard. Do you have any pics of your boy? I'd love to see 'em [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    p.s. Eskies were circus dogs at one point (no real useful purpose like hounds or hunting dogs!), and my eskie has excellent balance on 2 legs. She stands up on her hind legs to see what's on tables and counters (but doesn't put her paws on the table!) and walks around or does little bunny hops on 2 legs. That's her coolest trick [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    My Janky dog! She's 100% Greyhound...straight off the racetrack, and the uber-show dog! My horse just adores her. He sees her coming and his ears prick up and he drags me over to her. It's too cute. She'll just stand there while he sniffs her and nuzzles her.

    Years ago we had a Newfoundland who loved going to a horse show. All you had to do was hook up the trailer and he got excited. The great part was that all the kids loved him. He was like a big teddy bear. More often than not, little kids would run up to him and give him a hug and he would give them a lick on the face.

    We now have an English Setter that loves going anywhere except to the Vet. She is more like a Springer Spaniel at shows. She spends more time in the air than on the ground.

    Hoodoo, Devo is simply the cutest dog I have ever seen! I love him. There is something about him that reminds me of my dog...only mine has fur!

    That BIG snout of his (very generous nose he's got there!) I so want to kiss it!

    Anyways, my dog would pee his pants in excitement if I took him to a horse show. Munsterlander Ludger is a farm dog.

    I had an English bulldog named Archie, who, while he was not a horse show dog (I had him before I started riding English, believe it or not), was the coolest dog of all time. I'll attach a shot of his sexy self.

    Cheers,

    I think I have mis-spelled "Catahoula" but many moons ago I knew a fantastic LCBTH owned by a trainer who was really the uber-horse show dog. Respectful of horses, never underfoot, and those lovely blue eyes.

    My beloved Super Max Dog, who passed away last January, was a great horse show dog, a Dobie Rott cross. Except for the time I had to shell out $50 to get him out of the WEF slammer for getting caught in the "food court" area. Hey, what's the big deal, he was eating out of the dumpster, it's not like any people were doing that .... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Big Jake the Dobe is much too full of himself as an energetic 3 year old to be a very good barn dog, so he stays home.
