Now why does that banner say 100 years? Because…it’s been 100 years since the AKC formally recognized the Shetland Sheepdog as a breed. Isn’t that neat? This is also the theme of the Sheltie National this year. Jim and I leave for the National, which is at Purina Farms new show facility near St. Louis, MO, on April 13th. We just got back into town…we’re working like crazies to ship out all the stuff we need at the National to run the National Sheltie Rescue Network Booth. We’re even shipping a cash register so we can program all the products sent in by all the different Sheltie Rescue groups around the country and track the sales for each group…so we know, at the end, how much money each group has made and is owed.
