... which means it's already time for the Winter 2015-'16 issue of Sighthound Review.
Can you believe that the year is almost over already? It's time to
summarize your dog's achievements for 2015 and make plans for the New
The official deadline for ads and articles is
November 15, but there is still time. We can usually allow extra time,
but it helps to know ASAP what to expect - and a lot of advertisements
have arrived already BEFORE deadline. Remember that you can get a space
upfront in the magazine for a small extra sum, but that space is limited
and available only on a first come/first served basis - so please get
in touch with us as soon as possible.
We already have a
lot of interesting articles lined up. There will, for instance, be a
report from the famous Morris & Essex Kennel Club show, held on
October 1st, that has a storied history. It was started early in the
1900s by one of America's wealthiest women, Geraldine Rockefeller Dodge,
whose hospitality to the dog fancy was dispensed on a scale never seen
before. The beauty of the show and the superb arrangements helped make
this the year's largest dog show and the most important social event for
dog people. It was discontinued in 1958, but although now held only
once every five years, the show has come back into prominence in a
manner that I think even Mrs. Dodge would approve of. With over 4,000
dogs entered (on a Thursday!) this was once again an event to remember.
We will also have reports and photos from the Europe Winner Show that
was held in Norway and from shows in other, more or less exotic locales,
including a firsthand story by a Sighthound exhibitor who traveled to
Egypt to show - and won Best in Show!
There will be a
feature with questions and answers in our series highlighting the
country's most successful Sighthound owner-breeder-handlers, plus of
course national specialty reports, a summary of the current year in
words and pictures, a look back at the past, with invaluable
illustrations from our vast photo archives, and much, much more. We've
been told by many that when a new issue of Sighthound Review
arrives everything else stops until every page of the magazine has been
carefully studied and perused. That's good for you, good for us and good
for those of you who choose Sighthound Review to present "the world's most beautiful dogs." And that's why Sighthound Review won the Dog Writers Association of America "Best Magazine" in its category earlier this year ...
