From The President's Desk

July 2017

Dear PCTC friends,

Anyone who tells you that Cairn Terriers don’t shed has not seen the dust bunnies—as big as tumble weeds—that are rolling through my kitchen. On June 17, club members and guests gathered at Lydia and Dwight Hutchinson’s beautiful house to do something about their own hairy little dogs.  Lydia rounded up some experienced folks, including Trudi Graham, Michelle Hostler, Liz Ludlow, Leslie Spencer, and Kelli Winkler, to show us the ropes.  They not only helped us tame our Cairn’s coats, they also instructed us in the finer points of making a Cairn look like a Cairn, including putting shape on a dog and trimming a head, feet, and tail.  After the program, we had a pot-luck luncheon. Our host, Dwight, fired up the grill and fed us all on hamburgers and hot dogs. Many thanks to our hosts and those who demonstrated grooming.  

September will be a big month for the PCTC.  On September 2 and 3, Rescue will set up a booth at the Virginia Highland Games in Great Meadows, Virginia.  We will participate in demonstration races and reach out to thousands of people new to Cairns. Contact Lois Cleland or Veronica Hudak-Moe to volunteer.  Our fun match is the following week, Saturday, September 9, at the home of George and Kelli Winkler. Our judge will be the knowledgeable Dr. Mary Goss.  Then, on Wednesday, September 27, the Middleburg Kennel Club Show leads off the Hunt Country Cluster, in Millwood, Virginia—at Historic Long Branch Farm.  Middleburg K.C. is coming back after taking some time to build membership.  On the following Saturday, September 30, also at Historic Long Branch Farm, the PCTC supports the entry at the Warrenton Kennel Club Show.  The judge is club member Pam Davis.  These are lovely shows at a beautiful autumn venue. Remember, please see the Calendar at potomacctc.org for more information, to volunteer to help out, and for directions.

Regards,

Ann Gates
