Annie on Dogs Apr 28, 2008
This is a delightful book that reads like a novel but contains a mountain of interesting information put together by one of the most famous breeders/judges in the world. I recommend it to anybody with an interest in showing, judging and breeding.
Inexperienced handlers need to read this May 12, 2007
If you are new to the show world this is a must. Annie describes her early days before she became a judge as well as when she began judging. Some of the antics that went on are priceless!

Annie On Dogs is a compilation of magazine articles written by Anne Rogers Clark...one of the most respected judges in the dog world. When Mrs Clark spoke, you listened!! And learned!! Her death in December 2006 was a blow to all who knew her and she may never be "replaced".
If you wish to learn how to conduct yourself in various dog show situations (some very funny), then this is the book for you. If you wish to understand what goes on behind the glamour of televised dog shows, wish to understand things about those crazy people in the ring and just WHY that judge chose that dog, get this book and start reading at the beginning. The wisdom on the pages will astound you.
I was fortunate enough to both show under and steward for Mrs Clark and base my own judging format on her example. Read Mrs Clark's book and you'll never regret it!!! A 5 star rating is not high enough. Make this a 20!!!!!!
