Table Talk · February 15, 2023


Westminster is a tradition. Part of the charm and excitement was going to Manhattan, showing on the floor of Madison Square Garden (MSG), and being able to gather with friends I do not see often, in the city for fantastic dinners, Broadway shows, parties, etc. Will we ever get that opportunity again? That remains to be seen, but one can only hope, right? Some of the younger exhibitors have not had the opportunity to feel the electricity of Westminster at MSG. While there are many that appreciate the increased space and ring size by having the breed judging outdoors at Lyndhurst and limited seating in the tent for Group and Best In Show judging, there are also many who miss showing at the Garden. What is certain is that our sport has demonstrated great flexibility over the past few years, and many will attend Westminster regardless of its location. Hopefully the Westminster folks will be able to zero in on consistent date and a location in the not-too-distant future.

I can’t take him to the beach for a walk because he bothers you and messes with the holiday…I’m not allowed to rent a house if I have a dog. However, I can take him to the rubble to find you after an earthquake, in the woods after you get lost in the mountains because you did not have a map or a GPS, under snow because you made a detour not allowed, or in the water despite a red flag. Your life is in danger, and he will find you. He is “just a dog” but he will find you. Dogs are family. Dogs are our best friends.

Remembering Betty Regina Leininger

Betty Moonshadow

We received sad news of the passing of former professional handler, Doberman breeder and respected judge, Mrs. Betty Leininger. Betty’s judging career spanned nearly 40 years. She was a popular judge here in the States and her expertise led to requests for her to judge all over the world. The highlights of her judging career most likely included three Doberman Pinscher Club of America National Specialties, the World Shows in Rio de Janeiro (2004) and Mexico City (2007), the Westminster Non-Sporting Group in 2004 then the Working Group in 2012, and Best In Show at Westminster in 2014.
