Westminster Kennel Club 2000

Best of Breed
Sporting Group 4

Ch Flatford Zeus The Major God JH

Adrienne and I (Frank) traveled, dog less, to The Garden for the 2000 show. I was there on assignment for the Golden Retriever Review Magazine and didn't have the time to visit with the Flat-Coat people. Much less watch the ring. I was busy uploading video to the Golden web site when the FCR's were in the ring. Adrienne took the still camera with her and took a picture of each FCR entered.

I was able to get a position about 15 feet from the judge during group and got some pictures of both the Flat-Coat and the Golden. (I learned a Press Pass will get you anywhere.) You can see the Golden Retriever Pictures at
