A M E S S A G E F R OM T H E P U B L I S H E R 30 YEARS: A MAGNIFICENT RIDE

What?! It’s already December and we are all ready for the holidays… or are we? Doesn’t it seem that 2021 has flown by, and isn’t it wonderful to feel some normalcy again after two years of craziness? Everyone is really look- ing forward to the holidays this year, and there is no question that we will be feeling more comfortable getting together with our families and friends as we count our blessings. We are all so fortunate to have a roof over our heads and a safe place to gather. For those of us at SHOWSIGHT , it’s hard to believe that we have been publishing the magazine for 30 years! For three decades, we have been at the helm of providing news, education, and advertising to the most dedi- cated and talented people in the sport of purebred dogs. Thanks to you, we’ve been able to utilize our platform to keep our community’s achieve- ments and developments in the public eye. It has been our pleasure to serve the community for 30 years, and hopefully, we’ve made a difference. Every month, we have dedicated free advertising pages, or made donations to non-profit organizations, to help increase awareness of events that raise much-needed funds for those in need. We even created Showsight Cares, which has donated over $300,000 in just the past 16 months. We are very much a family publication, and I am so proud of our accom- plishments and our desire to serve the dog show community and preser- vation purebred dog breeders. We are grateful to be in business, and we attribute our success to the continued support of our advertisers. Without our supporters, there would be no magazine. So, we want to send a huge thank you to everyone for making the last 30 years such a magnificent ride. We’re looking forward to seeing you all in Orlando and at Westminster, and to serving our community for years to come. On behalf of the SHOWSIGHT family, I’d like to wish you all a Happy Holiday Season and a very Happy and Healthy New Year. We’ll be seeing you in 2022... !

Yours Faithfully,

AJ ARAPOVIC, OWNER & PUBLISHER

WIREHAIRED POINTING GRIFFON

A L E T T E R F R OM T H E A K C P R E S I D E N T

I t is my pleasure to wish SHOWSIGHT Maga- zine a very Happy 30th Anniversary. For the past three decades, this publication has highlighted the competitions, triumphs, and achievements in the American Kennel Club universe. Created in 1992 by true dog lovers and breeders, Joe McGinnis, Jr. and Duane Doll, some of the best and most treasured memories are held between the pages of this beautiful magazine. Not only were Joe and Duane dedicated Pekingese fanci- ers, their company, Doll-McGinnis, started numerous pub- lications that gave an independent voice and perspective on our sports and on our unique breeds. SHOWSIGHT was a stand-out all-breed publication, and it has endured. It’s been a pleasure to watch the magazine grow from its inception to the highly regarded publication it is today. Their years of dedica- tion to the sport and a passion for Toy breeds, with Pekingese, in particular, is to be honored. I remember their commitment to assisting Dr. and Mrs. Blamey during their decades of lead- ership of the Progressive Dog Club, offering classes only for Toys at the old McAlpin Hotel. No one can forget getting together with Joe and Duane following the Pekingese Club of America’s annual National Specialty with the likes of Nigel, Bill, Ed, Luc, Anna Katherine, Fortune Roberts, Lanie Rig- den, Gerry Hess, and Bill Blair. The fascinating real-life con- versations about Pekes was beyond compare.

SHOWSIGHT Magazine has been a staple at AKC Meet The Breeds and the AKC National Championship events from the beginning, as a sponsor, while also documenting the happenings of both. After I created Meet The Breeds as an educational outreach for AKC, there was the open question of a “Best Booth” competition. Joe stepped in and I moved aside; he single-handedly made this annual competition his own and, with Broadway flare, put together star-studded judging panels each year. That became a most successful his- tory of recognizing and appreciating Parent Clubs in each of the seven Groups. Now, under the leadership of AJ and Hanifa, SHOW- SIGHT continues on in a brilliant fashion, displaying qual- ity ads, reporting on dog shows, offering colorful commen- tary, and capturing new memories for many years to come. Cheers to 30 years, and the AKC wishes you many more years of success! Enjoy,

DENNIS SPRUNG AKC PRESIDENT/CEO

SHOWSIGHT Celebrates Our

30 th ANNIVERSARY

THIS COMMEMORATIVE EDITION ACKNOWLEDGES THREE DECADES OF DEDICATION TO THE SPORT OF PUREBRED DOGS

Rediscover the writers whose influential work has appeared in the pages of SHOW- SIGHT Magazine through the years, and get reacquainted with many of the sport’s legendary figures whose lives enriched the sport and whose legacies continue to inform and influence breeders and exhibitors today. Honor the memories of DUANE CLARK DOLL and JOE NEIL MCGINNIS whose contributions to the sport include the creation of this publication and the sup- port of so many noteworthy causes. Meet AJ ARAPOVIC, the current Publisher and CEO of ARAMEDIA Group, through Joe’s introduction, simply titled, “FAMILY,” and discover what motivates AJ to build on the brand and expand the sport’s influence at home and around the world. And enjoy a touching poem, written by Joe, which reminds each of us not to put off till tomorrow what we can do today. In “Just Between Us,” ANNA KATHERINE NICHOLAS dispatches news from the life of one of the sport’s most acclaimed all-rounders and prolific authors, and in “Just the Facts, Ma’am,” MARCIA FOY reports on the passing of her dear friend and several legendary icons in the sport. DANY CANINO “blasts” a few exhibitors for their indifference, even as she encourages them to “Rock ‘N Roll,” and PEGGY MICKEL- SON foretells the influx of “new” breeds and addresses the (here we go again) proposed changes to the judges’ approval process. PETER BELMONT JR. offers suggestions for “Handling Success,” and SEYMOUR WEISS examines what every exhibitor owes to the community of dog fanciers in “A Word to the Wise.” And in “Reality Check,” ARLENE CZECH emphasizes the perils of suffering from poor sportsmanship.

SHOWSIGHT Presents: PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE

Make a reservation at Tavern-On-The-Green and join hosts IRIS LOVE, LIZ SMITH & ANN RADICE at one of their memorable “Dachshund Parties,” and gather with friends and philanthropists at a Have-A-HEART charity fundraiser. Stroll down memory lane with a visit to past shows at CANFIELD, WESTMINSTER & AKC NATIONAL CHAMPION- SHIP, and go back in time even further through several “Blasts from the Past,” curated by Pam Guevara. In her feature titled, “Decades in Dogs,” BJ ANDREWS takes a look at some of the memories that every breeder and exhibitor makes with their “best friends,” and in “Lines from Linda,” LINDA AYERS TURNER KNORR asks the question everyone is pondering, “Has it really been 30 years?” WALTER SOMMERFELT reviews many of the milestones that we’ve all experienced over the last 30 years, and STEPHANIE SEABROOK HEDGEPATH reveals why she (and SHOWSIGHT) have been motivated to help others for more than three decades. Helping others is just one of the rewards of breeding dogs, of course, and ALLAN REZNIK introduces another master breeder whose dedication to the sport spans several gen- erations and whose influence will surely be felt for generations to come. And as in every issue of SHOWSIGHT Magazine, our Breed Features provide an unprec- edented educational experience through the expert guidance provided by AKC parent clubs and their experienced members, all of whom have generously shared their points of view with our readers for the past 30 years... and are dedicated to doing so—well into the future.

Enjoy!

ON MONDAY by Joe M c Ginnis

A puppy’s brown eyes once asked me, “Don’t you know I’m here? You run out with this one, evaluate that one; I smile and I laugh, but you do not see.” “On Monday, my love, On Monday,” I said, “We’ll sit in the sun, just you and me, and you’ll teach me to love, all of the little ones, each of the little ones, little ones not as yet famous.” And then she was a starlet. The ingenue’s eyes then asked me, “Don’t you know I’m here? You snarled at that lady who said something snotty but she hugs her dog, she loves her dog, so in her there must be some good.” “On Monday, my love, On Monday,” I said, “We’ll sit in the sun, just you and me, and you’ll teach me to love, all of the people, each of the people, the people who love dogs like I do.” And then she was a champion. The showgirl’s bright eyes then asked me, “Don’t you know I’m here? You’re mad at that lady who gave us no ribbon but I sure had fun though some other dog won and it hurts me when you are unhappy.” “On Monday, my love, On Monday,” I said, “We’ll sit in the sun, just you and me, and you’ll teach me to love, all of the people, each of the people, the people who give out the trophies. And then she was a Mama. The Motherdog’s eyes then asked me, “Don’t you know I’m here? You kiss my fat babies, you brag on the phone, and I swell with pride and their daddy does too but I need you to tell me I’m spe- cial.” On Monday, my love, On Monday,” I said, “We’ll sit in the sun, just you and me, and you’ll teach me to love, all of the parents, each of the parents, the parents as much as the babies.” And then she was an old lady. The veteran’s eyes then asked me, “Dont you know I’m here? You run out with this one, evaluate that one; I smile and I laugh, but you do not see.” “On Monday, my love, On Monday,” I said, “We’ll sit in the sun, just you and me, and you’ll teach me to love, all of the older ones, each of the older ones, older ones no longer famous. And then she died. On Monday.

LINES FROM LINDA

TIME FLIES WHEN WE’RE HAVING FUN HAS IT REALLY BEEN 30 YEARS?

BY LINDA AYERS TURNER KNORR

W hen I was only four years old, my love for TV's Lassie prompted my parents, Roy and Hazel Ayers, to surprise me with a Collie. We began to play “pretend dog show” at home, in parks, and on a nearby ball- field. I worked with my dog on a leash every day, brushed her and fed her. My father immediately recognized that her quality was not pleasing to his eye. He subscribed to Dog World magazine and purchased our foundation dog, Ch. Poplar Stop the Music, from New York. My first times in the conformation ring began when I was only six years old. My parents made everything about the sport our family hobby. Choosing our kennel name was a contest between the three of us... Conrad Collie Ken- nels was chosen, as our street name sounded good with Collies. (They let me think it was my idea.) Musical names would be our theme. If you look in old magazines and books, there you will find me showing Ch. Conrad's Dancing in the Dark and many others. Mother had my show attire custom-made. My Poodle-type skirts featured felt cutouts of Conrad Collies.

I showed alongside my father, and as he became the Presi- dent of the Collie Club of Georgia, I was their first Junior Member. During the years when he was President of the Atlanta Kennel Club, I enjoyed teaching training and groom- ing classes, doing TV appearances and radio shows. He was President of the Southeastern Association of Kennel Clubs as well as serving as AKC Delegate for the Atlanta Kennel Club. During those years, my brother, Roy Ayers, Jr., was born and became the newest family participant in our sport. We were blessed to travel around the globe, watching and learning as our father embarked on the next step. When my father pursued his judging career, his philoso- phy was to either judge or show. He asked us to discontinue exhibiting in the conformation ring. All three of us became AKC Conformation judges—a rarity! As an All-Rounder, my dad inspired in our family a great love and respect for the American Kennel Club—our lifelong passion. These were the stories that Duane Doll and Joe McGinnis wanted me to contribute to Doll-McGinnis’ newest venture, an all-breed magazine named SHOWSIGHT . They would also be inviting BJ Andrews to join the team, and I had long- admired BJ and her lovely Akitas. SHOWSIGHT would be a positive magazine—and the dog world was really ready for one. What fun, I thought, and LINES FROM LINDA was born!

left: Always just a coincidence, no matter where we were, Joe McGinnis and I matched.

LINES FROM LINDA: TIME FLIES WHEN WE’RE HAVING FUN— HAS IT REALLY BEEN 30 YEARS?

Roy Ayers, Jr.., Linda Ayers Turner Knorr and Todd Turner

Frequent partners in folly, Joe McGinnis and I, without collaboration, always seemed to wear matching outfits! Meet the Breeds was one of our favorite projects.

“Over the past three decades, it has been my delight to share memories and pay homage to the many friends who have contributed to our family’s

incredible journey in the dog world.”

“Santa, I’ve been good this year.”

Day. The stockings are hung, the trees are lighted, a sleigh full of “fake” presents is in front of the house with Santa on the front porch behind. I’ve been decking the halls for a month while the carols were playing on Pandora. Yes, you can guess we have critical Christmas Spirit! GOOD LUCK IN ORLANDO AND NEW YORK, HAPPY 30th ANNIVER- SARY, SHOWSIGHT , HAPPY HANUK- KAH, AND MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!

Publications. I had already fallen in love with AJ and Hanifa and their beautiful girls, so being a part of their newly named Aramedia Group has been a joy! It is important to name my encouragers who have made writing for SHOWSIGHT so much fun: Samantha Adkins, Daniel Cartier, Cortny White, and Kelli Stout. In Greenville, South Carolina, where I live, the family Manger Scene is promi- nently placed by a Bible turned to Luke 2, marked by a red velvet ribbon. Roy Ayers, Jr. and my son, Todd Turner, will travel from Washington, DC and Colum- bia, South Carolina, to celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ on Christmas

Over the past three decades, it has been my delight to share memories and pay homage to the many friends who have contributed to our family’s incredible jour- ney in the dog world. In more recent years, LOOKING BACK THROUGH LINDA’S LENS and MEMORIES CAPTURED BY LINDA AYERS TURNER KNORR have become new additions to the magazine. Time takes all but memories. With the passing years, I lost both of my parents, Roy and Hazel Ayers, and my dear friends, Duane Doll and Joe McGinnis. AJ Arapo- vic was like a son to Joe McGinnis and was the perfect person to carry on and grow the distinctive traditions of Doll-McGinnis

HO! HO! HO!
