World Dog Show Alliances, plus a Neighbor’s Nightmare

The results of this year’s World Dog Show in Salzburg, Austria, demonstrate how alliances between breeders and fanciers around the world can lead to international success in the show ring. Senior Editor Christi McDonald reports on many of this year’s breed winners with American roots and global connections. When good dog people come together, the dog world – and purebred dogs – can benefit.

When a neighbor’s dog wanders from its yard and into Social Media Maven Pilar Kuhn’s life, it’s her worst nightmare come true. The German Shepherd represents all that can happen to any pet that finds itself lost and alone. Find out how the lucky dog is reunited with its owners, thanks to the quick thinking of our kindly blogger.

Beginning tomorrow, we’ll be bringing you highlights from the Mission Circuit in Pomona, Calif., the West Michigan Apple Blossom Cluster in Kalamazoo, Mich., and the Atlantic Shore Memorial Classic in Freehold, N.J.
