Tomorrow, Saturday, October 1, 2016, is the date of the Morris & Essex Kennel Club Match Show with ancillary events including Meet the Breeds.
This year it is being held near to the site of its original grounds, The Dog Field in Madison! These were the grounds of the former estate of Geraldine Rockefeller Dodge, 1892 – 1973. She was a great dog fancier in her time and established the Morris and Essex Kennel Club. Some of the grandeur of her day will be revitalized in tomorrow’s events in Madison, NJ, where she resided. My main borzoi breed club, Borzoi Club of Central New Jersey, will be holding a Match and hosting a Meet the Breeds there tomorrow. It should be great fun. Hoping the weather holds out, meaning, hoping it does not rain. Sadly, I will not be bringing any dogs. How I wish I could bring Tresor. He is a wonderful ambassador for his breed, as was his great dam, “Mikhailya”, however he is too dog dominant to be around so many other dogs and would make a grand fool of himself and embarrass both his mistress and co-breeder.
