Arago: Dog Shows

Dog Shows

Owney was a common mutt, recognized as at least part terrier. If not for his national fame, he would have had no place at a dog show (called “Bench Shows” at the time). But not only did he attend some, but was the star attraction of at least two such shows during his lifetime. Reporters noted that he was “a drawing card” at the 1893 Los Angeles show.
