National Specialty News
yes, just four months and we will be experi- encing Poodle in april – or the Poodle Club of amer- ica national Specialty, april 19-25, 2008 in Salisbury, maryland. it is our hope that this earlier date – be- fore the airline embargo on shipping live animals is in place – will make it easier for our exhibitors and breeders who live in the warmer southern and west- ern states to more easily make the trip to the greatest Poodle national.

Coming to PCA this April? Obedience Stewards Needed
once again i am sending out an open call to those of you who are planning to attend the PCa national Specialty, this year being held in april in maryland. because of the change in dates, many who usually attend will not be coming this year and so we are very short on volunteers to steward in the obedience and rally rings on Tues- day. if you plan to be there, please consider helping the Club to, once again, put on the greatest Poodle show on earth. experienced or not, you will have a busy time, but more important as all of us who have done this work over the years can affirm, a day full of companionship and pleasure in watching Poodles do what they do so well - or not - in these Companion events. Time is of the essence. if you can join us, please e-mail me back with your commitment, and your t-shirt size! all volunteers get a special t-shirt from the club as well as lunch and a ticket to the after-competition dinner at Wicomico Center. e-mail me at email@example.com
many thanks, ann mandelbaum
