Crufts and the Healthy Dog, plus Treasured Gifts

Blogger-in-Chief Billy Wheeler says his mother instilled in him a love for all things British. Billy the Anglophile and dog devotee admires the British Kennel Club’s annual dog show, Crufts, and he’s looking at the 15 breeds that are under a health watch of sorts in the U.K. Find out about the breeds under scrutiny and be reminded that Pekingese and Border Collies have more in common than you might think.

Who doesn’t enjoy finding a hand-written note or a surprise package among the stack of bills, circulars and junk mail? Through the years, I’ve been fortunate to receive a few gifts in the mail from doggie friends that I treasure to this day.

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.
