Helpful Hints For Juniors


August 2012 By William Given I SPEND TIME WATCHING PROFESSIONAL HANDLERS.

Center Stage with Ken Sinclair – Araki Tibetan Terriers

K9 Chronicle willy

In 1954 a true Scotsman was born and little did his friends and family know then, but he was a star in the making and a true breeder, enthusiast and judge of our time today in which we are grateful. Born in East Kilbride Scotland in 1954 was Ken Sinclair, later known for the world famous Araki Tibetan Terriers. He became fond of the Tibetan Terrier after leaving school and becoming a full-time kennel boy for a kennel in Sussex for Anne Matthews (Hardacre), then aged 18 years old. Growing up as a child and with his family they did own a few dogs as pets including a black miniature Poodle called Pepe. It was the day he went along with his family to collect Pepe that he was mesmerized by the beautiful set up of kennels and grooming area of this place that Ken stood there and knew that this is what he wanted to have for himself. Before Ken owned Tibetan Terriers, he enjoyed great success at Championship shows with Afghan Hounds back in the day when the entry in the UK was in the 300 to 400’s, and it was from the experience, knowledge and understanding of having this breed that he had an idea of what to look for in a Tibetan Terrier.

Morris & Essex – The Story

Wayne Ferguson

The original Morris & Essex Kennel Club Dog Show was the realization of one extraordinary woman’s vision. Geraldine Rockefeller Dodge set a standard for shows in the first half of the twentieth century. She had the influence and resources to craft a show to her own specifications. However, when Mrs. Dodge could no longer orchestrate the show, Morris & Essex ended. Only memories remained and a treasure trove of catalogs, pictures and memorabilia were forgotten in an attic at St. Hubert’s Giralda, the shelter established on Mrs. Dodge’s Madison, New Jersey estate after her death.
