BPofGD is back! Mostly because I want to procrastinate when I should be writing, but also because I met Jesse last weekend and learned that he has a dog named Champ who is an American Hairless Terrier! I pride myself on knowing lots of doggies, but I'd never of this (or Munsterlanders. I saw one of these guys at a hardware store two weeks ago and felt re-inspired about the blog).
One of the best things about the dog show was not just that there were hundreds of adorable dogs with friendly humans, but also the fact that there were so many different kinds of dogs walking around. Dogs I'd only read about, or seen in YouTube videos! Dogs like the PERUVIAN HAIRLESS, which I'd longed to see IRL. (In addition to YOLO, my students taught me IRL this summer. Eep.)
The women with these dogs were really friendly, and explained that it's necessary to oil these dogs down (yes) and to coat them with sunscreen. (I frequently saw them doing both.)
