Other Animals at Monterey

The CRCS show is held in the hog barn at the Monterey County Fairgrounds.   It's no joke, there are two hogs at the barn next to the show.

The young hog is very excited to see people coming, thinking that food is coming.

Don't you see my feeder is empty?

Monterey temperature is very cool.  While the rest of the country is baking in the heat, Monterey is in the 60s.   This little dog is in a big car waiting for his human to appear.

Betty in the red jacket cannot resist the picture taking op.

The little guy is getting a bit desperate, yelping nonstop.

Little boy comes and said, "Little, stop it".  Yes, the dog's name is "Little".  Very fitting, it is little.
