MEET THE BREEDS
AKC/Eukanuba Invitational Dog Shows
December 17 & 18, 2011
The OESCA was again represented at the AKC Meet the Breeds® in Orlando, FL on 17-18 December, 2011 in conjunction with the 2011 AKC/Eukanuba National Championship.
Until this year, this event had been held in California, and people like Dee Dee Caswell, Tina Dougan, Dodie Glassco, Amy Owen, Diane Reynolds, Linda Zimmerman, Chris Pesche, Sharon Thralls, Roger & Joan Lundquist, Bob Caswell, Dick Blair, Doug Johnson, Marilyn O’Cuilinn and Mary Anne Brocious have made it a tremendous success.
Due to a fantastic effort from the OESCA Southern Region Team we won Best Booth in Show defeating over 164 other breed booths. As a result of this wonderful victory, we were given $500.00 by Eukanuba and AKC to be used by the OESCA toward a health and research project of our choice. The Booth was a tremendous effort by our Team Members: Dick Blair (the creative genius), Richard and Connie Gagnon, Darrell Priddy, Marty Clugstone, Allene Hutcheson, Mary Salaja, Glorya Noyes, Sue Johns-Di Frenza, Judie Papp, Bob and Dee Dee Caswell, Mary Anne Brocious, Edy Dykstra-Blum, Karen Burdash and I. Each and every one on our Team did a fantastic job introducing and educating the public on the Old English Sheepdog. Additionally, this event turned out to be fun and invigorating that created unity, allowed camaraderie, and was a great opportunity to meet new people. Bottom-line- IT WAS FUN!!!
