Blogs or dogs?

I had to choose tonight between the Greensboro blogger meet-up at the Green Bean and watching the Westminster Kennel Club dog show.

Bloggers lost.

And how could they not? Many of Trajan and Hero's relatives are going to be on national TV!

If you go here, you can see information about Trajan's cousin Mirabella. There's also a ten-minute streaming video of the preliminary rounds for my favorite breed, the Belgian Malinois, though if you can make it through all ten minutes, you are a Malinois lover indeed.

Update: Darkmoon reminds me that I got the date of the Greensboro blogger meetup wrong -- it's today. I still can't make it: I'll be having dinner with Ben Issac after his lecture this afternoon on the invention of racism in classical antiquity. It's at 4:30 p.m. in 230A McIver Building at UNCG, sponsored by my department.

And in case you missed the big news last night, the Malinois did not win Best in Show at Westminster. That award went to Carlee, a German Shorthaired Pointer. Mals never win. At least they didn't give it to that damned terrier.

I thought that the Meetup is tomorrow?

It is nice to see a sporting dog win.
