Do you ever watch NatGeo channel? Expedition wild? I read that Casey Anderson with his grizzly bear Brutus will be there on Sat I think...Can't wait to see him , he's HUGE!

And I always hit the Nov cluster show,,this year take note, it's begins the day after thanksgiving, vs the week before:)

Another fun event that I always hit, at the Big E, is Nov 11-14, the Equine Affaire.
If your into "horses" of any type, it's HUGE,,also sheep herding demos, lots of hands on horses/ponies etc.. Fun for the kids:)

We were there mostly to socialize Fanta. She did very well. Except for when we were trying on a walking harness. Dude was nice but she still got stressed out. My fault for even making her do it.
I almost signed her up for dock diving practice but the line was bit long. ;) she would have done great.
We were looking for leather leashes but no luck.
I was actually disappointed with how small it was. One at Big E dwarfs that one.

oh definately the big e is much more dog geared,,and actually this year, there were some vendors missing that carried things like good collars and leashes..

I just bought a new one and LOVE IT! It's made of Biothane..if you do a google search you should find someone who sells them, altho the girl I bought mine from is going to be in Springfield..

Did you see the Shiloh Shepherds?? A couple of pretty ones, but felt bad, they were pretty stressed out..

Glad Fanta did well except for the walking harness,,I 'll bet it was crowded again today:))

Will touch base with you before the Big E,,maybe we can meet up:)

I would love to meet up at Big E. we will be going on Saturday or Sunday (have to work Friday).

I saw the Shiloh Shepherds, pretty impressive dogs. The biggest one didnt like Fanta much as he showed her his pearly whites so we kept walking. :)
I must say that we met quite a few GSDs, a lot more than we did at Big E last year. However none were as pretty as our girl. LOL
