Meet the Breeds 2016

Last Friday, Marlee and I drove to New York City to set up and participate in AKC/Westminster's Meet the Breeds, a huge event where nearly every AKC breed has a booth decorated with beautiful images, wonderful dogs, and people who enjoy speaking about their breed. The crowd is large and the dogs are very patient to be petted and adored for 7 hours. Marlee and I had a great time in the city, even with the extreme cold, and at not even 2 years old, she handled it like an old pro. We were very lucky to win 1st place in the booth competition as well! We enjoyed representing the Barbet Club of America, along with Stacy Able and Leslie Woodward. The dogs were perfect hosts!

Barbet Art for the Barbet Club of America

My good friend Leslie Woodward created these three images for our AKC/Westminster Meet the Breeds booth this year. I think you'll agree they are spectacular! We are excited for these beautiful posters to grace our breed booth and, after Meet the Breeds wraps up, these images will be available as prints, notecards, mugs, and other items as fundraisers for the Barbet Club of America. The online store for these images is CafePress/Barbet
