Consider This From my veterinary viewpoint, health is a critical issue when choosing a family dog. Before selecting a new puppy for your family, do your homework.
Everyone in the family, a dog included, will have health issues during their lifetime. To get started, check the website of the national breed club for your breed.

So cold that Daphne snugged in our faux potato bags we creates as we hauled our props out to the display area on the Piers. I designed some quick stencils that might looks as if they came from old, Irish farms, and my friend Jess used her laser machines to cut the stencils which Joe spray painted onto some burlap bags that he sewed together last week. I had a few rules for the booth design, most of which stated that there could not be any clovers, green plaid or gaelic type, as I felt that these would be more cliche, and perhaps be the go-to motif's for the other breed groups with dogs of Irish heritage.

Unfortunately, he did not win at this show, coming in second again and Best of Opposite Sex, but we still enjoyed the big event at Madison Square Garden, which was very exciting.
Joined by our good friend Abbie Zabar, we sat, sipped beer and watched the spectacle without the added stress of thinking that we might have to be on Good Morning America in the morning!
OK, it would have been fun, but really, I had nothing to wear! Back to gardening later this week as we come home.
