An Archive Preserves the Past, plus Shows Closing July 31, 2013

Senior Editor Bo Bengtson’s interest in dog show history has resulted in his acquiring artifacts dating back to the 19th century. A part of Bo’s garage is devoted to an extensive archive that includes magazines, catalogs and photos from around the world. Discover some of the treasures collected by a dog man with a devotion to preserving the past.

The third week of August will find exhibitors and their dogs at events in 12 locations across the U.S. Senior Editor Christi McDonald presents a sampling of the special events planned for shows in North Carolina, Ohio, Indiana and Nevada. Find out where Bred-by Exhibitor and Amateur-Owner-Handler competitions are planned, and where Meet the Breeds and “My Dog Can Do That!” will be part of the fun.

Be sure to check out our photo galleries, where you’ll find recent winners and candid photos from shows held near and far. Just click on Show Scene below the masthead banner, or select any of the images in the left-hand column of our home page.
