Our calendar will soon be out. There were a few fall additions and the board needs to approve them. We'll get it to

Hope everyone stays cool and see you in September.

AKC’s Canine Ambassador Program
Ambassadors for Our Breed
Dear Members,
I would like to take this time to tell you about a program that has been
implemented to our club. AKC’s Canine Ambassador Program. It is a
program that is affiliated with AKC dog clubs and it’s participants are involved in making presentations and visitations to children. Any member
in good standing with the club can sign up. I’d like to introduce two
members who are presently signed up. Catherine Goff, our Secretary.,
visits a local school and holds presentations to two different grade levels
twice a year. Barbara Eberhardt, a long standing club member, makes
hospital visits to a local Plano hospital weekly. I am proud to support
both these individuals in their community volunteer work with children.
Now partnered with DFWLRC and AKC we can offer them more support. AKC supplies these ladies with educational material, coloring
books, activity books and even DVD’s for schools. All this free of charge,
graciously donated by AKC. I personally can not thank these ladies
enough for their participation in this program. Doing so has helped our
club fulfill a major activity with our compliance with AKC for approval of
our specialty. If you feel you would like to become a participant or have
interest in this program, please contact me for further details.
Regards,
Chyrel Kennemer

Well, it is Fall time and many have schedules that have
shifted into a higher gear. The break in the HEAT has
been a welcome change. Maybe, its time to play more with
the dogs instead of just trying to stay cool! Happy
Training and Playing to All!

PennHIP Database For
Labrador Retrievers
www.prlrc.org
Ever try to locate a Labrador with a PennHIP Score? The Pawcatuck River
Labrador Retriever Club is providing a database service to the Labrador
community. We feel that this is an important tool in improving our breed.
Breeders/owners are able to register their dog’s PennHIP information directly from our website at http://pennhip.prlrc.org Searching the database
is a breeze! To search for all dogs on the database, do a search without filling in a name. Please give it a try and we appreciate your support.
Here is a code to use if you want to submit an Optigen test on a
dog during the 2010 National Specialty. Optigen clinic number is
LRNSXX15. The code is available from 9/20/2010 to
10/15/2010. Please share with friends! Marianne Foote, LRC
From "Frances O Smith DVM"
[email protected]: all samples have to come
to me to be sumbmitted at once but anyone can use
it. *more info on Optigen website*

Wow! What a Newsletter to put together. For days I had very little
then all of a sudden I was getting a lot of information. Several times I
was getting numerous updates during the day. Thanks to all that sent
information, brags, pictures and helped to get information out to all
the members! If I made a mistake, I pre-apologize for the mistake.
As you have noticed the Newsletter is 14 pages long...think GREEN
and print only what you need for reference!
