Celebrities in Palm Springs, But It's All About The Dogs Down Valley

CREATED Jan. 4, 2014

INDIO - CELEBRITIES AREN'T THE ONLY ONES FLOCKING TO THE DESERT THIS WEEKEND...
DOG ENTHUSIASTS FROM ACROSS THE WEST ARE HERE TOO....
FOR THE PALM SPRINGS KENNEL CLUB DOG SHOW.
OUR CORBAN BAKER HAS THE STORY. 

CORBAN:  FOR ANYONE WHO HAS A LOVE FOR DOGS, INDIO IS DEFINITELY THE PLACE TO BE THIS WEEKEND.

THE EMPIRE POLO GROUNDS IN INDIO HAS GONE TO THE DOGS THIS WEEKEND FOR THE ANNUAL PALM SPRINGS KENNEL CLUB DOG SHOW AND OWNERS CAME FROM ALL OVER THE WEST COAST TO BE A PART OF IT.

"IT'S REALLY FUN COMING, ESPECIALLY WITH A GROUP OF PEOPLE FROM THE SAME AREA AND THE SAME DOG CLUB AND COMING TOGETHER AND ENJOYING A WEEKEND OR FOUR DAYS ESPECIALLY THE OUTDOOR SCENARIO LIKE THIS WHERE THE GROUNDS ARE JUST BEAUTIFUL AND THEN JUST HANGING OUT WITH YOUR DOGS AND THE PEOPLE YOU LIKE HANGING OUT WITH AND WHEN YOU WIN IT'S EVEN SWEETER".

NANCY AND HER THREE DOGS DID PLENTY OF WINNING, TAKING HOME A TOTAL OF TEN RIBBONS. "WE HAD A REALLY GREAT WEEKEND SO FAR. BECKHAM TOOK BEST OF WINNERS TWO DAYS IN A ROW AND YESTERDAY HE WAS IN UM A BRED BY EXHIBITOR GROUP AND TOOK A GROUP ONE WHICH IS REALLY REALLY EXCITING. AND TODAY HE TOOK WINNER'S DOG AGAIN. SO WE HAVE ONE MORE DAY AND HOPEFULLY IF THINGS GO WELL TOMORROW. HE MIGHT BE A CHAMPION."

ACCORDING TO SOME, THE DOGS ENJOY THE COMPETITIONS JUST AS MUCH AS THE OWNERS DO.

"WELL THESE DOGS LOVE TO SHOW. AND SOME SHOW DOGS DON'T ENJOY IT AS MUCH AS OTHERS BUT THESE TWO ARE REAL HAMS. THEY GET IN THE RING AND TAKE OFF AND HAVE A GREAT TIME. SO, AS A RESULT THE HUMAN ALSO ENJOYS IT AND FEELS PRETTY GOOD ABOUT HANDLING THEIR OWN DOG AND THAT'S WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING."

SUNDAY IS THE LAST DAY FOR THE SHOW AND IT'S CONSIDERED THE OPENING EVENT OF THE DOG SHOW YEAR ON THE WEST COAST.
