Senior Editor Bo Bengtson spent a recent weekend in Lompoc, Calif., mecca for sighthound fanciers in the U.S. Seven specialty clubs attracted more than 600 entries to the Western Sighthound Combined Specialties, including hundreds of Salukis that gathered to celebrate the American Sighthound Association’s 50th anniversary. Discover the artistry of the sighthound, both living and portrayed.
Fanciers in California, Louisiana and North Carolina are in for a good time this year at shows being planned for the Labor Day weekend. Senior Editor Christi McDonald provides a sneak peek at the special events on order, including one cluster offering a cash prize for “cleanliness.” Find out where exhibitors will have a chance to be rewarded for their good housekeeping.
