Just a reminder that the UKC Empire State Dog Club show in Peterboro NY is fast approcaching. The closing date is Sept 15th. They do have day of show entries as well! There were a couple of judges changes which I'll copy below.
For those of you who missed the discussion they had their first conformation show as a new club planned to be held at the KOA in Herkiemer NY. I had called to find out about the pet policy at the campground and was informed they had breed bans for Rotties, Dobes, Pit's, and any mix of those breeds. I let the club know about the policy and they responded very quickly by calling the UKC, asking if they could change their site, and moved to Peterboro NY instead.
They took a loss to support the exhibitors of these breeds and to help fight against BSL so I would love to see as many people as possible support them in one way or another.
If you can enter, please do. Showing support by physically being there with one of the representatives of these breeds would be awesome. Make sure you let them know WHY you entered. (By the way I can't wait to see Michelle and Riggs trotting around the conformation ring one of those days...
I'll have to take pictures! )
If you cant enter, or aren't local, there are other ways you can support them. They do a 50/50 raffle. If you were interested in buying tickets for it you can send me a note with a few dollars. I'll buy all the tickets at once and present them with the notes of support thanking them for supporting the fight against BSL. If interested just PM me for my address.
Thanks again! I'm hoping we can help alievate some of the cost they had to encounter by doing the right thing and moving their show site..
As a side note.. I'm getting married next sept in Little Falls NY, which is right by Herkimer. I will be including in all my invitations the request that my guest not stay at the Herkimer KOA with a note as to why... and you bet the KOA will be getting a copy of the invite and note, complete with a guest list number (probably around 200), as well.
