The impetus which will drive the consumer to engage with this material must certainly be the tantalizing encouragement to "be the first in your neighborhood to put on real dog shows!" It's true, I wouldn't want to be a johnny-come-lately to the real dog show market, especially not with a buck-toothed simpleton in face paint putting the spurs to me. What am I gonna do, put on one of those FAKE dog shows? I'd be laughed out of town.
