This past week was a busy National Specialty week, indeed! In honor of all of the National Specialties, I’d like to share the reasons to attend a National, written by William H. Miller: • To visit with your peers • To measure the “state of the breed” • To compare your breeding stock to that [...]

Trouble Across The Pond


By Amy Fernandez As we know, things haven’t been going too great over at AKC lately. Not much to be done about that, but I’m here to get your mind off it. And what better remedy for that than a nice big scandal-totally unrelated to our current situation. And they got a good one brewing [...]

Table Talk · October 16, 2019


I am on my way home from Las Vegas where I attended the Black Mountain Kennel Club shows at the Morrell Recreation center. While on the smaller side regarding entries, these shows are very pleasant.
