A Blessing of the Animals, plus the Buzz about Lakeland Terriers
Editor Susan Chaney reports on a very special event held recently at the American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog. A Blessing of the Animals took place at the institution’s Queeny Park location in St. Louis with about 30 dogs in attendance. Find out how the museum is carrying on a springtime tradition.
The Lakeland Terrier is the most colorful of the rough-coated Terriers. A game little hunter from England’s Lake District, the breed goes about the business of ridding any landscape of vermin in a “workmanlike” manner. Discover the many charms and subtle nuances of the lovely and alert Lakeland.
