Conformation Top 20

BCSA 2018 Conformation Top 20 Qualifying Dogs

Come one, come all! 2018 BCSA top twenty celebration, Friday November 2, 2018 to celebrate all dogs champions or NOT!!!  If they mattered to you they matter today!

 The 2018 BCSA top twenty celebration will be held upstairs in the Founders room at Purina Farms, on Friday November 2, 2018. The presentation starts at 6:00pm and festivities start at 4:30pm. 

 This year’s theme was inspired by several things; the change in dates from early September to the end of October as well as our strong love of those dogs who came before us, because without them we would not have a Top 20 today. While many of you may not know about our theme we will help you celebrate! This year’s theme is Dias De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead. 

 It is a common believe in Mexican culture that the dead would be insulted by mourning and sadness, and that they would prefer to be celebrated instead!  Considering the dogs general love for life and for us, we feel this ideology could not be more fitting.  Dias De Los Muertos celebrates life, not death with food, drink, parties, music, and festivities the dead would have enjoyed!  Dias De Los Muertos recognizes that death is a natural part of human/dog experience, a continuum of birth, childhood, and growing up, to becoming a contributing member of the community.  On Dias De Los Muertos, the dead are believed to be awakened from there eternal slumber to share in the celebrations with the ones who loved them. 

 This year’s Top 20 is a place where friends and competitors can gather together for video presentations of the top 20 dogs both past and present, with food, music and a good time. 

 If you want to learn more about Dias De Los Muertos in a fun way watch Disney’s motion picture “COCO”.
