Its over in seconds and photography has to be quick, focused, and beautiful. Every AKC breed and AKC Canine Partners mixed breeds may participate at events. In the following gallery showcasing two recent events held by The Dalmatian Club of the Piedmont in Charlotte, North Carolina, one may view many different breeds from Dalmatians to Shetland Sheepdogs to Border Collies to German Shepherds and dogs of all mix and sizes.
