Breed Essence with Jane

Afghan

Many breeds have an epigram. That short distinctive line, or quote that instantly gives you a mental picture of the essence of the breed. That little something maybe a breeder, judge or exhibitor mentioned or a sentence from the breed standard. These one-liners hit the nail on the head and are thought provoking.

Charlie Olvis’ 1934 Chevy Coupe Yes, Dogs are our life, but we all have some sort of a side passion. A little something, we do to otherwise occupy our minds.  I have always been amazed by the number of Motor Heads in the dog world. Cars and motorcycles ranging from the classics to just plain funky [...]

There will be a tent for group judging. I know that Westminster Kennel Club asks those in judges’ seating dress in black tie during group judging. My guess is this year’s outfits will be a bit different, considering the outdoor summer venue. I have no doubt that those fortunate enough to attend group judging will make us all proud while looking lovely in their WKC best!

Once Around… with Dorothy Macdonald

Dorothy Macdonald

Dorothy likes people, likes their dogs, and likes to talk – and this is SERIOUS FUN!

“I think if you know something – it’s important that you pass it on – and if you don’t know it – it’s time you learned it.”

My heart is full after spending four days at dog shows in Southern California! It was great to spend time with folks I have not seen since the end of last February at the Beverly Hills show. This was the first year that the Lake Mathews and Conejo Kennel Clubs hosted a four-day cluster at the Lake Perris Recreation Park. This venue is gorgeous! In fact, I would have to put this location on my list as one of my favorite places to hold a dog show! Congratulations to the show committee for putting on a terrific event. Group judging this past weekend started at 2:30, and the show concluded at a very respectable hour every day! Kudos to the cluster’s Superintendent, Jack Bradshaw, and all involved.

I was glad to catch up with professional handler Tuni Conti. She told me she is on the road to recovery after what turned out to be a stroke. I wrote last week that Tuni found herself in the ER while at the Pointer National in Brooksville, Florida, from what she thought was dehydration. After visiting her regular medical professionals upon her return home, she learned that she had a stroke. After a stay in the hospital to ensure everything is okay, Tuni is now home and cleared for local travel. She was told she could show a few dogs. Friends are asked to keep an eye on her while at shows to make sure she is okay. We are so glad that you are healthy, my friend!!!
