    We need a catchier title, but I wanted to start the thread. :lol:

    On USA Network again. Fill in your schedules, list your favorite pooches, and sweet :dog: dreams everyone. 6 new breeds coming this year too...

    I'm rooting for the German Shepherd, but since my Scruffy is a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, they have a spot in my heart. :)

    My :cat: is not excited, of course...

    Go Huskies!

    I say that every year, but they never win! And they are the best.

    The Monday night broadcast splits with the first hour on USA and the next two on CNBC just in case anyone is setting a dvr.


    The garden kitty laughs at how those dogs run around in a circle on command.:cat: (but I think he's rooting for the herding dogs that never win the big title)

    One of the most gorgeous dogs I've ever seen was a red-boned hound. There are some gorgeous blue-ticks as well. I love hounds. I'll have to call my dad and remind him that the show is on tonight. He had a wonderful blue-tick years ago.

    Go Long Haired Chihuahuas!
    http://www.westminsterkennelclub.org/breedinformation/toy/chihua.html

    The chihuahuas are just amazing! My stepmother's chihuahua, Dixie, understands everything you tell here and she can also talk. lol! Dixie gets excited when I come to visit and starts shouting "Angie, Angie, Angie"! She also says "Momma, Momma, Momma" to my stepmother whenever she wants a treat or wants to go outside.

    I found a picture online of a long haired chihuahua that could be Dixie's twin. Absolutely gorgeous! The chihuahua is sitting in front of a white background.

    I'm so excited! I didn't know it was tonight, so I'm glad for this thread. I just watched the best of breed for the basset hounds. I know those dogs are awkward, but all my neighbors had them growing up, so I've always loved that breed.

    Obviously I'm pulling for kerry blue terriers and bedlington terriers since I have one of each.

    I was excited for Mary Carillo too!

    I love the basset hound in this group. So far, I thought the Afghan was really spectacular.

    I don't know, the little beagle was pretty good. The Black N Tan is from my home state.

    I was excited to see the blue tick. My dad had one when I was 8 or so.

    Oliver and I want a borzoi now. I thought the handler was kind of cute too ;)

    I agree, the first beagle had really good poise. I guess beagles don't seem all that special to me because they were so common back home. It doesn't seem like a show dog.

    Okay, lady, just because you are showing an Irish Wolfhound it doesn't mean you need to bedazzle 4-leaf clovers on your vest.

    So far, I'd still pick the little beagle and the English fox hound.

    Draco likes the PBGB. :lol: He walked right up to the TV the entire time it made the circle.

    I think the beagle is going to make top 4 in the group pretty much for sure. I'm in love with the PBGV, though. So, I hope it makes the top 4.

    Ooooh, the redbone is really beautiful!

    I love Redbone hounds. If I lived in the country, I'd have one.

    I think the Scottish Deerhound could factor in as well.

    I hope either the PBGV or Scottish Deerhound take it.

    I guess I'd be okay with the Elkhound too.
