Kennel Cough and our National Specialties

When most people hear the words, “kennel cough” they think “bordetella.” But Editor Susan Chaney interviews a former professor of internal medicine at North Carolina State University and learns that diagnosing this disease is not so simple. Learn how more than one virus or bacterium can contribute to the classic cough and why the best option is preventing the complex infection in the first place.

For the first time in many years, self-described “Beagle girl” Kayla Bertagnolli was unable to attend her breed’s National Specialty last week. Our DFR Blogger usually accompanies her mother and mentor, Leah, to the weeklong event, and their absence this year has Kayla thinking about what makes annual parent club shows so important. Find out why Kayla says the National Specialty is not “just another show.”

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.
