Remembering Dorothy Macdonald

The Canine Chronicle received the sad news that Dorothy Macdonald of Carmel, California passed away today at 94 years old. Miss Macdonald is one of the most iconic judges of our time and a renowned authority on all breeds, especially the Brittany. She was a respected and sought after judge of all Sporting, Hound, Terrier and Toy breeds.

Among many awards and recognitions, Miss Macdonald was a past recipient of the AKC Lifetime Achievement award, was a past faculty member of the AKC Judges Institute, AKC Gazette columnist, past president of the Dog Show Judges Association of America, and a past Dog Woman of The Year. She judged Best in Show at the 2001 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

Donations in her memory may be made to Take The Lead at www.takethelead.org.

The Canine Chronicle extends our sincere condolences to all who knew and loved her. The sport of purebred dogs has lost a great friend.

Here is the link to an interview with Dottie that was conducted in 2019:

Once Around with Dorothy Macdonald a video interview by Dale Root from 2019

“By god that dog has the look that goes through every muscle in his body – and if you see him looking that way with his tail – and his nose – and his feet – you put him up.”
