Breeder/Owner-Handler Wins Ridgeback National, plus Shows Closing January 16, 2013

Karen LaFleur has been attending the Rhodesian Ridgeback National Specialty for years, and the 2012 edition in Orlando, Fla., is likely her favorite. The New Jersey resident showed her young homebred dog to a breeder-judge, and beat the pros at their own game. Meet Karen’s mentors who provided a solid foundation, and find inspiration in her story of weathering the storm and coming out on top.

Senior Editor Christi McDonald has information about the all-breed shows that will take place around the U.S. just before “Westminster Week” begins. From Arkansas to Arizona, eight locations offer exhibitors and their dogs ample opportunity to practice their footwork before stepping out in midtown Manhattan. Find out about all of the special events planned at shows in your area.

Many of this year’s top show dogs are featured in their own beautiful mini-websites on Best In Show Daily. Simply click on a banner ad to see the dog’s up-to-date show history, plus a slide show of photos that reveals exactly why it’s a top dog.

By Dan Sayers

The power went out in the New Jersey home of Rhodesian Ridgeback fancier Karen LaFleur for 10 days prior to her scheduled departure for the National Specialty in Orlando, Fla. Superstorm Sandy had just pummeled the Mid-Atlantic region, but the power outage and toppled trees were no match for this native New Yorker. more
