Plans for the World Dog Show 2010

So I contacted a Travel Agent today to see about going to Denmark to the World Dog Show in June 2010. I have been wondering why we don’t see information about the World Dog Show here in the USA. We see Crufts and Westminster and the big AKC show. But I have never heard of the World Dog Show. Is it because, at least in Denmark, they don’t allow docking or cropping? I wonder. They probably don’t allow dental implants Plano either… which I am glad for!

Anyway, I really want to go. Jet’s breeder will be there and I want to finally met her, as well as some other folk from Sweden and Denmark I have been chatting with.  I want someone to come with me, but I don’t know if that’s going to happen.  Maybe.  We’ll have to see how much it costs.

So I really don’t have the money to go.  But my friend here at work has an awesome travel agent and I sent her an email. So hopefully she’ll get back to me soon. And if I can’t borrow the money from my Mom and Dad, then I might see about getting a signature loan.  I just need to hire my friend Marie as my personal assistant so she can come too!  If we just paid off the mortgage, then I’d be able to afford it. But that’s about six months away… darnit!  So close, yet so far.

But I don’t think Jet’s breeder will go to France in 2011, or Austria in 2012…. so this is the best chance I have to go and meet her and some other new friends.  So, I’m crossing my fingers and hoping for credit. Maybe there’s some stimulus money somewhere I can get a hold of… I’d be stimulating the economy! Well, the Danish economy anyway!  LOL

  1. I’m so excited for you to go to the World Dog Show this year! I think it will be so cool. I hope all your plans start coming together for you really soon!

    1. Hi, Cynthia.

      In the same boat as you, dying to go to Denmark as well, and pulling out all the stops to get there. I have an import from Finland and another from Sweden. They are Danes and would love to take one over with me, but the travel cost from here (South Afica) to fly a Dane are just horrific. Let me know how you get on with your plans.


      1. Hi Jan! Your flight is probably a lot more than mine! And your dogs are probably so much bigger an thus more expensive to fly. Jet will go under the seat in the cabin with me. It’s so nice having a small dog, he’s my first!

        I would love if you could make it too!

  2. We are looking forward to met you & Jet in Denmark next year!
    Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year to you and your family
