From FoxNews:

MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) — The Muncie Kennel Club has canceled four days of dog shows usually held at the Horizon Convention Center in January because management would permit them only if the group covered the center's newly carpeted floor with plastic.

"Convention officials wanted us to cover the carpeting with plastic, but the insurance company wouldn't cover it and the dogs and their owners wouldn't tolerate it," said Tim Catterson, the kennel club's president.

Catterson said club members were afraid that either they or their dogs would slip and fall if the shows were held on plastic-covered floors.

Joann McKinney, the convention center's general manager, said she was disappointed that the dog shows were canceled. She said, however, that the new carpeting had increased business from corporate meetings and weddings and needed to be protected.

"The convention center people did everything they could for the dog shows, but they couldn't overcome the carpet," McKinney said. "I hope someday we can bring the shows back. It's a unique piece of business that has been very good for the city."
