Starting on Thursday April 30 through Sunday May 3, 2015 were the following specialty dog shows:
- The Central New Jersey Hound Club (CNJHC)
- The Borzoi Club of Greater New York (BCGNY)
- The Bucks County Kennel Club Dog Show (Supported Entry by the BCGNY)
- Boroi Club of Delaware Valley (BCDV) held with Trenton Kennel Club Dog Show
I could be found sitting ringside once again. There was much to see and many to whom to speak. Many of us had a great deal to catch up on. For my new breeder, Jelly’s breeder, N24, there were her two new puppies to showcase. They could not have been lovelier and showed themselves well. On Friday, the puppy bitch won Best Puppy in Specialty, BCGNY, her club, about which she could not have been more proud. She came close again on Sunday at BCDV but did not make it. Next week, we travel 800 miles to Huron, Ohio to attend the Borzoi National Specialty Show. We believe our puppies have a chance. They are entered in Futurity, Sweepstakes and regular classes.
It’s amazing how something I wanted so much as this has actually come to pass in my life, bringing me much joy. There may be negativity associated with these activities, such as unhappy, meddling people, however I simply push them out of my mind. I’ve become better at doing this. I know my future mental health depends on my ability to do this. I have to concentrate on the blessings my life has and ignore what has gone wrong, other than to learn from it.
Three most amazing gifts that have entered my life recently, and that is a huge number for anyone. I am overwhelmed with appreciation and gratitude. There is N24 and the other friends I have made in the borzoi breed, my boyfriend’s love and respect, and my own borzoi, Jelly. There was a time not so long ago when one or more of these were absent and I have a clear memory of the difference from today. Today is a day of being happy and expressing gratitude for it.

Although Jelly celebrated her fifth birthday recently, it is she who is the gift of love to me, everyday.
