Saturday & Sunday January 25th and 26th, 2020
One of the best Meet the Breeds to date! The AKC held the event at the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan, separate from the Westminster KC show due to pier repairs. The Javits has been renovated since our last experience there, and its wide aisles and overhead lighting made it more spacious and easier to maneuver. It also returned to a two-day format,which was a bit of a challenge, but our canine and human volunteers prevailed. I think all of our dogs thought the huge crowds came just to see them!!
We unveiled our new booth décor, created by our design guru NTCA member Paula Smith, which received numerous compliments. Months of planning goes into this production, and many thanks go to NTCA members Judy Laffey (Meadow), Nicky Conroy (Mr. Finn), Mary Mang (Lilly), Lark Shlimbaum (Wylie and Rascal), Amelia Smith (Diesel), Betty McDonnell (Hazel), and two new volunteers David Michaud and Michael Heaner, with Harry and Louis.
