Who's a good doggie? Find out this weekend when Lost Coast Kennel Club hosts its 17th annual All Breed Dog Shows June 30-July 2 at the Humboldt County Fairgrounds (free admission, $5 parking).

The event is your chance to see some of the top dogs in the country looking and doing their best during three days of conformation, obedience trials and rally. The show grounds open at 7 a.m. each day with competition beginning at 8:30 a.m. and going through Best in Show (generally late afternoon). This year's extra fun events are the 4-to-6-month puppy class on Friday at 11 a.m. and the Pee Wee class for handlers aged 5-9. Sunday at noon. After Best in Show on Friday and Saturday, don't miss the lure coursing "fun runs," where dogs show off their speed, endurance and determination. Not only are the shows a great place to learn more about your favorite breed (talk to the experts!), you can also browse dog-related vendors, take part in an "exceptional" raffle and enjoy great food. Organizers say the event will most likely only go until about 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, so keep that in mind. And while you may be tempted to show off your fur babies' good looks and talent (like I am), please leave them at home. Only dogs eligible to compete are allowed on the show grounds. Ruff.
