GCH CH Wind Spirit Rod’s Amazing Grace

San Francisco is one of the world’s unique cities.  Few cities can combine the best of urban existence with some of the most breath-taking vistas to be had, all jammed in a scant 48 square miles.  In San Francisco, the Golden Gate Kennel Club is the perfect way for the fancier to start his/her year.  The GGKC’s January show, one of the few AKC benched shows remaining, is a favorite of West Coast fanciers.
