Welcome to the exciting new issue of The Working/Herding Dog Digest.

All eyes are next on the iconic Morris & Essex Kennel Club being held on October 6th in Colonial Park, New Jersey. Held only every 5 years (this is 6 because of obvious reasons in 2020). We’re looking forward to seeing all the great dogs and throwback attire at this grandest of events.

After judging at Westminster in 2003,2007 and 2012 Judy Harrington had her special night to step into the middle of the center ring and preside over all the Working Dogs. She so graciously gave us this quote on her  2021 experience:

After judging at Wesminster in 2003,2007 and 2012 Judy Harrington had her special night to step into the middle of the center ring and preside over all the Working Dogs. She so graciously gave us this quote on her  2021 experience: 

“The first year that I showed at Westminster was with my first homebred champion Great Dane, CH.Justamere Jason.  A large brindle dog and he was awarded Best of Opposite in a very large entry. I was thrilled and have always felt that WKC was a magical place to show when you walked on to the floor of the Garden to exhibit.
 
Lyndhurst was like going home for me since the Great Dane Club of America National Specialty and Futurity was there for many years when I started showing Great Danes. My very first AKC assignment was to judge the Futurity at that site. 
 
As much as I was looking forward to judging the Group at the Garden, I wouldn’t have traded this very special year for any other looking back.  It was a truly memorable and unique year and the weather and site were magnificent. The committee and the work that went into bringing this event to life was monumental - I can’t even imagine all of the hoops that needed to be jumped through.  Walking into the Group ring felt every bit“Westminster”.

In 2022 Westminster is back in the big city of New York-this time instead of Monday and Tuesday Nights on it’s regular February dates it has gotten moved up a few weeks to Tuesday: January 25th and Wednesday: January 26th.
