Aspergillus Is More Than a ‘Runny Nose,’ plus Another Notable Junior Wins Big

Editor Susan Chaney interviews two professors at North Carolina State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine to learn about the potential dangers of aspergillus. When fungal spores enter a dog’s nose, this painful – and life-threatening – infection can result. Learn about the two types of the disease, and find out about the most successful treatment options for each.

Some junior handlers certainly know how to show the rest of us how to “get it done.” In today’s DFR, Blogger Kayla Bertagnolli introduces a young lady from Alaska who recently piloted her Landseer Newfoundland to an unforgettable pair of wins – on the same day. Meet the 15-year-old from Wasilla whose love for her dog is difficult to ignore in both the Junior Showmanship and Group rings.

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.

The ‘Runny Nose’ That Isn’t ‘Just a Cold’
By Susan Chaney

Aspergillus spores are everywhere – in the soil, in plant material, even in dust. We breathe them in every day, and so do our dogs. Most of the time, we never know it. Neither do they.

But if we are unwell, with a compromised immune system, and the spores get stuck in any of our respiratory pathways, we may get the condition called “aspergillosis” (that “gi” has a “ji” sound) from those microscopic spores. And sometimes dogs get sick from them too. more
