Of course, the Coliseum brings back many other memories. I remember going to a Cow and Calf show there with my Dad. I remember watching a horseshoe competition in the basement. I also remember going to a big church gathering there.
My Dad was also a waterfront commissioner for awhile and I remember going with him when he would be there for one thing or another.
I also think of my Dad as he used to work for Ralston Purina which is a big sponsor of the dog show.
Another person I think of is my friend Betsie who is an owner of show dogs. I always look forward to her posts about her Welsh Springers and watch for them on the show.
