The Ten Days of Brooksville

In honor of 
the Florida Classic Ten Day Dog Show Cluster
in Brooksville FL

Anna and I wrote the words to "The Ten Days of Brooksville" in the car on the way up to the January 15 dog show, day 3 of the ten day Florida Classic Cluster.

The show site, which is fully owned by four local dog clubs, is on the side of a gentle hill. With the big tents and the constant breeze, it is as close to Camelot as a dog show ever gets.

The Florida Classic Cluster is impeccably run and always exhibitor and spectator friendly. I was part of the group that bought the property; last year we had our mortgage burning party.

This song is a celebration of the beautiful show site as well as and the longest dog show cluster in America.
