THREE ROTTWEILERS REPORT FOR DUTY:
Disabled Navy Veteran, Michael Biggles, will show his three Rottweilers Rambo, Retro, and Rascal at BHKC. Outside his conformation and work responsibilities, Biggles visits military bases with his canine trio in tow. The dogs interact with retired, elderly veterans, and the children of active duty.

Rey, an Alaskan Malamute, never complains. When his family goes backpacking, this mega-strong member of the Working Group carries 30 per cent of his body weight in camping gear for 120-plus miles.

SWEET 17 PARTY:
Before blowing out her candle treats at the show, Nugget, a 17-year-old French Bulldog, makes her final show appearance in the Veterans class. FYI, the typical life span of a Frenchie is 9 to 12 years. In October, Nugget will celebrate again when the dog’s owner, Dr. Jennifer Arthington, marries Nugget’s handler, Stephen Cabral. The couple have been dog show friends for 36 years.
