How did it get to be June already? Seems like time just flew by this year! Speaking of time flying by, all you proud owners of ROM dogs and bitches, make sure that Doris and/or Cappy and Gloria have photos to use in the Review. Of course we’re already working on the ROM dog pages for July, but if there is anyone who has not sent a picture for a ROM sire, please get in touch with us.

As most everyone knows, we will showcase the new ROM sires in July, the new ROM dams in August and then before we know it, here comes the National issue in September. So now is the time to be thinking about those pre-national ads. Don’t wait until the last minute or you might get left out!

Now is also the time to decide which national trophies you’d like to donate. Did you know that you can donate a trophy for as little as $20? Or if you’re feeling flush this year, you could donate the Best of Breed or Obedience Victor trophy for a mere $450. If you were fortunate enough to have won a national trophy last year, why not consider being the donor of that same trophy this year? What a great tradition we could start! Seriously, there are trophies available in every price range, and you get your name in the catalog for donating! Regional clubs donate trophies; gets them name recognition in the catalog as well. Class trophies are $50 for 1st, $40 for 2nd, $30 for 3rd and $20 for 4th place.



Recently a group of us from Colorado went to Albuquerque for the Southwest Futurity weekend. We always enjoy going to those shows. Well maybe not the going so much - it is early April after all and for Coloradans that sometimes means driving through a snowstorm to get there -- but once we’re there we enjoy it.

Most of us take dog shows for granted. Not just the Colorado dog fanciers, but most all dog people. Many of us have a short list of shows that we always at least consider attending. Our decisions are made mostly by who the judges are. Others routinely attend certain shows regardless of who is judging.

Regardless of how we decide which show to attend, we take for granted that the shows will go on. That’s not always true. There are clubs that used to be a part of the fabric of our lives, but no longer exist. Some of the shows we remember fondly aren’t there anymore. That’s the new reality.
