Looking Back With Lee – Remembering Eleanor Rotman

Eleanor Rotman - 1991

“There are so many wonderful memories of Ellie. In all the years of showing to her I do not remember the wins or loses, just the fun of showing to her. She had a way of making everyone who entered her ring that they were at a Garden Party! She made the novice feel they were on a par with the old pros. She would not allow anybody not to enjoy the time in her ring. Even the spectators outside her ring were drawn into party mode. She had a way of making a starting novice feel they were an important part of the show.”

The History of the Maltese

F Snow White

Malta is a sun-soaked rocky island that sits in the crystal-clear blue waters of the Mediterranean. With over 7,000 years of history, this intriguing island is home to some of the oldest free-standing temples in the world and (over that huge span of time) it has played host to the Phoenicians, Romans, the Knights of St. John, Napoleon and the British Empire. All have left their mark in the form of phenomenal fortifications and breathtakingly beautiful architecture.

Alva Rosenberg – Dean of American Dog Judges

Alva

The moment the first loser stalked out of the first dog show judging qualifications became the central controversy of this sport. Not only has it defied resolution for well over a century, the surrounding furor has never dropped one decibel.

Turn-of-The-Century Scandals: AKC vs. Boehm

vs

It may seem unbelievable, but at one time AKC often shared detailed information about its legal wrangles. Transcripts, depositions, and trial verdicts were published in the AKC Gazette. Needless to say, this was never an official policy and there was no altruistic motive attached to these uncharacteristic episodes of transparency.

Words Of Wisdom From Jane – The Do’s and Don’ts of Approaching The Judge

digital_Judge1

Approaching the judge should be done during downtime, not between classes, not while taking photos, but when the judge clearly has a break in their assignment. Introduce yourself, explain you are a long-time breeder, exhibitor, or parent club-approved mentor (if applicable).

Known as ‘Pepsi’ by his many adoring fans, the magnificent black-and-tan Afghan Hound had been crowned Showdog of the Year for 1982 just one month before Chris Terrell showed him to his Westminster Best In Show. They won this great honor as an owner-handler team.
