Table Talk – 12/27/17

It is hard to believe that I am getting on a plane Monday to head to Palm Springs for the lovely Kennel Club of Palm Springs cluster at the Indio Polo grounds. Was there really a break this year????

I was happy to see that several of our friends maximized the short break by getting away for some needed R&R. Nina Fetter was off to Cabo to enjoy several days of fun in the sun with her client and owner of Jango, Faith Ott. Angie Lloyd and Ernesto Lara were also able to sneak away to Mexico to re-charge their batteries. Linda and Dale Hurlebaus spent Christmas on Bourbon street in New Orleans.

Congratulations to Laura King and Robin Novak on building their new home! Here’s hoping you guys get to spend some time there and enjoy it! It’s been quite a few months for Laura who was also named handler of the year by the AKC Registered Handler Program. Congratulations on this well-deserved recognition.

Best wishes to long-time Chihuahua fancier Gloria Johnson who was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Our thoughts are with Gloria, her husband Art, and their family and friends.

Continued thoughts are with Pilar Kuhn and her husband, Rod Ott, as Pilar enters her second week of cancer treatment.

I was glad to hear that Leslie Potts’ surgery went well and she is on her way to recovery. We look forward to seeing you soon my friend!

Congratulations to Kellye (Bacon) and Nick Riani who are expecting their first baby.

For those of you who stay at what was formerly the Affinia Manhattan for Westminster, please note that the property was sold last year and is called the Stewart Hotel. There are many people who stay there during the dog show and might not find it under the old name!

Erie, Pennsylvania was hit with a record 53 inches of snow this week! Better now than in late January when the Erie shows are held there. I remember driving through blizzard conditions to get to those Erie shows. I believe the last time I braved a winter blizzard to attend the shows, the temps plummeted to sub-zero and it snowed the entire weekend.

Celebrating birthdays this week are: Carol Spritzer, Kim Tennant Hansent, Bobby Schoenfeld, Jessica DiPerna, Cindy Stroupe, Andrea Glassford, Melanie Steele, Jason McIlwaine and Lisa Arnett.

Happy New Year to all. May each and every one of you follow your dreams and have a year filled with success, health and love.

Be safe in your travels my friends and keep an eye out for the new folks! Don’t forget to drop me a line about your travels, and other happenings your dog family would love to hear about. Until next time…..
