BEST IN SHOW

This fable in words and drawings by the talented TV actor FRED GWYNNE is dedicated to all dogs who feel they have been misjudged in the show ring. But humans can learn a lesson from it, too
December 23, 1957

1
Once upon a time, a little girl went to a dog show. And on her way she met a man

2
"My dog is going to win Best-in-Show," the man said,
"AND IT'S EASY TO SEE WHY!"

3
Then the little girl met another man

4
"My dog is going to win Best-in-Show," he said,
"AND IT'S EASY TO SEE WHY!"

5
Farther along the way the little girl met a woman

6
"My dog is going to win Best-in-Show," the woman said,
"AND IT'S EASY TO SEE WHY!"

7
Then the little girl met another woman

8
"My dog is going to win Best-in-Show," the woman said,
"AND IT'S EASY TO SEE WHY!"

9
When they finally all arrived at the show...

10
and were standing in the judge's ring, the little girl said quietly:

"MY DOG IS GOING TO WIN BEST-IN-SHOW"

11
And it did....

AND, of course (turn the page)...

...IT'S EASY TO SEE WHY!
