NYC

By Amy Fernandez “I was doing it on a fairly regular basis but so many times we got hit by a blizzard, I started thinking I was jinxing the show so I stepped down as show chairman.” DALI president and longtime Dachshund breeder Diane Poranski had justified reasons for getting superstitious.

Charles Self – A Life in Sporting Dogs
