Dogs of Ballard Dog Show canceled for weather

Update (Sept. 11): The Ballard Dog Show hasn’t had the best luck this summer: tonight’s show has been canceled “due to the high possibility of thunderstorms in the area”.

“The weather was certainly not on our side this year but we look forward to producing this event next summer,” Anndrea Dohring from Ballard Alliance tells My Ballard.

Update (Sept. 6): Now that the smoke has cleared, the Dogs of Ballard Dog Show has been rescheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 11 from 6 to 8pm.

“Cheer and woof our contestants on – there will be giveaways for all, treats, a selfie photo station, and more!” the organizers tell us.

Update (August 21): The dog show has been postponed due to poor air quality. From Ballard Alliance:

“In the best interest of our participants, community partners and pets, we are postponing the Dogs of Ballard Dog Show scheduled for this evening, Tuesday, August 21.”
They add that all dogs that were registered as contestants for the August 21 event will be guaranteed participation on the rescheduled date, which is yet to be determined.

Original: Only a few days left to perfect your pup’s tricks and costumes: next week is the Dogs of Ballard Dog Show in Ballard Commons Park.

On the evening of Tuesday, August 21, the four-legged residents of Ballard will be competing in three different categories: Best in Show, Best Costume, and Best Trick. There will be three awards given for each judged category. The free event is from 6 to 8pm., and will also include giveaways and  The Seattle Barkery food truck will have both human- and dog-friendly bites.

To sign up your dog for one of the categories, click here. They’ll also accept day-of registrations, but contestants have to arrive 30 minutes prior to the show to fill out paperwork.

Seriously? I’m busy assisting my elder parents that. Personally I’m tired of people and their precious mutts thinking they’re so special. Been to court over a late night barker, and won! I’m next going to purchase 1 of those air horns, like they use at sporting events, to be able to make my very own noise right back. Seems the houses aren’t getting any further apart, yet people allow their dogs to bark, and bark. Some folks have their priorities numbered wrong here.

@ Truth: I don’t drink. I do though have a clue, unlike you. You must be another democrat slave. You must be great at sleeping.

I was in the same situation but instead of a dog it was someone’s elderly mother who wouldn’t stop screaming.

Lex, I had a parent who suffered from dementia, who much preferred to throw things rather than scream, but I have to admit you made me LOL.
Since nearby homes have been replaced by tall, much closer townhouses, I pledge to be more thoughtful of my neighbors. Even the grouchy ones.

Maybe you should start the first annual Elder Parent Assistants of Ballard Show if you feel left out? I’m sure your whining and complaining would take first place, and is much worse than your neighbors dogs barking.

@ Scott ICK: Perhaps spelling isn’t 1 of your stronger points. LOL. Born and raised right here U douche. Perhaps it’s the fact that Nuevo riche hipsters have been conditioned to fall for anything. Go blow a goat.

You know how the “Nuevo” riche got so riche, right? They made the magic box you stare at all day. They wrote the ones and zeros that make it possible for you grumble and grouse morning noon and night about every little inconvenience you perceive. The reason there’s so much money in what they do is because people like you stopped doing anything except live vicariously through the systems they built for you.

Remember doing things? Back before you only sat back and complained online about what other people were doing? Didn’t you once do things too?

Nobody forced this on you. If you have a problem with the “Nuevo” riche, then stop feeding the beast. Step away from the screen. You’re the fatted lamb they feast off. You. Look in the mirror.

Actually you can thank evil men for most of that tech, many of whom are unfashionably pale and rather conservative, at least in private.

Or perhaps lack of interest?

A dog show in Seattle was canceled?
I’m assuming a State of Emergency was declared by the Mayor Durkan on behalf of all the traumatized dog parents. Just try to breathe, guys. We can all get through this if we stick together!

Has to be newbies running this. No one ever cancels due to rain in Seattle. Again…has to be lack of interest.

How did you miss the massive thunderstorm that hit Ballard tonight? Some people may have thought it was sunny with a few clouds but to dog owners it was the storm of the century!

An easy solution would be for you to not attend if you aren’t a fan of doggos. You sound like a miserable individual, I hope you find some happiness in your life.

@ BDL: so anybody NOT doing what YOU do sucks? How nice of you to tie out titles. I think any yuppie scum living in Ballard blows chunks. Trend sucking dilettantes R U. I bet Dog is YOUR co-pilot too huh. Oh hee hee hee. It’s so freaking funny. Dogs are an option. Not in the constitution either. I bet your dog gets treated better than some older people in homes. How does THAT make YOU feel bro?

Nobody said anything remotely like “anybody NOT doing what YOU do sucks”. Not remotely. You have serious anger issues, Scott. Breathe, man. Breathe.

Yep because only people who love DOGGOS (fuck me dear lord) are happy people. God forbid someone hates dogs bc they slobber, piss, shit, bark, and get fur all over my shit when I’m on a crowded fucking bus in the AM. BTW, I am sure you think I’m some old retired shit in ballard because of course I couldn’t possible be a 20 something guy living there that happens to shockingly hate dogs (newsflash, I am, and I hate dogs). Hope you enjoy jogging w/ your doggo and acting like you live a great life bc you have a man’s best friend and everything in wonderful in the world bc all we need is a DOG to feel validated in life. YES dogs are the BEST.

Calm DOWN Scott. Calm down. Sun’s getting real low, sun’s going down. There. There.

They cancelled the dog show. You can’t stay in a blood rage over a dog show that you weren’t ever going see, and which isn’t happening. Focus your anger on fluoride in the water or soybeans or something that at least exists. The not-happening dog show isn’t going to absorb any more rage.

Twenty something? Really, Scott? No. You’re not going to pass for a millennial. Don’t even. You might be able to pull off pretending to be a dozen different 50 to 60-something white men, but young? Nope. You sound old because you are old.
