Adult Handling.
Adult Handling is always a crowd pleaser and is a spoof on the "art" of showing dogs. It provides some much needed levity and a break during the days of serious competition. This year it included not only the renowned "Pointer Sisters" ( Patty Crowley, Nancy Conrad and Sharon) but also Gandhi (Joe Diaz), the Grinch (Donna Taylor) w/reindeer and sled, a cowgirl (Ann Carter) w/her uncontrollable steer, a patriotic "baby" in a red/white and blue diaper (Don Schwartz), a lady handler (Michael Simberlund) w/ his dog (daughter, Jordin in a dog suit), a spoof on "double handling" by Brenda Abrahms, and a complete demonstration on comedic ring procedure by Jean Persia with her multi-titled obedience champion. Still more ... that I might have missed.
