The Cherry Blossom Cluster (www.cherryblossomcluster.com) is this weekend at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium (I-83, just off the Beltway)
Thinking of getting a dog but don’t know what kind? What better place to see 175 different breeds and talk to dog owners (and handlers and breeders) than a dog show?
Want a new leash, dog bed, or some healthy dog treats? Come to the state fairgrounds this weekend.
What is a cluster?
A cluster is a group of dog shows and the Maryland State Fairgrounds hosts the large Cherry Blossom Cluster every April. The Saturday show is sponsored by Old Dominion Kennel Club, Sunday's is brought to us by the Baltimore County Kennel Club, and Monday's is put on by the Catoctin Kennel Club for a total of 2800 dogs and 175 different breeds (I didn’t even know there are that many different kinds of dogs!).
Friday will highlight Terriers, Tibetan Mastiffs, Golden Retrievers, Bearded Collies, English Springer Spaniels, Weimeraners, Dachshunds, Boxers, Chihuahuas, Dobermans, Irish Setters, Poodles, and Bouviers.
