Welcome to the exciting December/January 2022 issue of The Working/Herding Dog Digest.
YES, I did say 2022. Time waits for no man or dog, so let’s all move forward together and WORK on making tomorrow better than today.
For the first time in my lifetime Westminster is in January-as I understand it there will be no big crowds at the Pier as the public is not allowed in for the Breed. Group judging at the iconic Madison Square Garden will remain the exciting spectator-filled event it is world-famous for.
I will always know that if it were not for our loyal clients we would not have a special magazine to produce for our thousands of readers across the world. I will quite honestly never be able to thank them enough, this is the time of the year I am overjoyed to be able to publicly express my gratitude and say these two words that mean so very much. . . THANK YOU!
I am so very thankful for our great team that puts up with my “Every Page Has To Be Perfect” attitude. And together we produce a great magazine to be proud of. Every single issue for almost 20 years.
We are the only magazine in the U.S. That focuses exclusively on the Herding & Working Group. In this issue you will find in-depth coverage on the Following National Specialties: Beger Picard, Doberman Pinscher, Akita, German Shepherd Dog & The Bullmastiff Our motto always has been and always will be…”We Work For You!”.
After being out of the ring for a while it is so great to see Wendy Bettis back doing what she is so passionate about. Have known Wendy since we were both Junior Handlers many years ago in Southern California. I wish her and Jimmy as well as their beautiful family only the very best.
Big Congratulations to the Samoyed “Striker” on being Top Dog All-Breeds for 2021. Handler: Laura King and owners: Blair & Judi Elford & Marc & Coreen Ralsky had quite the deserved record-breaking year.
That’s All For Now, I’ll See You At The Shows.
