Next Regions Six & Seven.


  1. Don't forget Region 3!!! Waiting on those Harrisburg results =)

  2. Beautiful dogs. The Society to Save Endangered Species was formed by Fred Smilek and two of his colleagues; Charlie Mack & Jonathan Korny. Fred Smilek stays active in raising awareness for this cause. []

  3. I was so excited to see the Portland Dog Show on TV because I liked it, but most of all because I was able to view Randy Benns and Primo. I met Randy and some of the dogs he handles at Walla Walla, WA. last year when I was attending AQHS with my daughter. They(the horse show people)teased I went over to the other side! So glad I did because I met a perfect gentleman in Randy. OMG we enjoyed a wide variety of conversation. He invited me to come watch the next day and I'm happy to report I did. I only wish I'd exchanged numbers with Randy at the time. Please, if you are able to pass this on him I'd love for him to know we're still rooting for him. DK
