Salt Lake City Na onal The Salt Lake City Naonal is close at hand. This year the Club sponsoring the Naonal will be offering cash awards for Best in Show, Reserve Best in Show and Best Variety/Group. In Memory Virginia De Long We were sorry to hear of Virginia’s passing. I knew Virginia for a number of years. Virginia loved her Modenas. She worked as a veterinary assistant

and was very fond of animals.

She was devoted to

breeding and showing collies, but she loved her Modenas. Her gi for breeding was legendary and her parcu lar interest was dilute colors. She once told me that her lifelong goal was to win the Naonal, which she accomplished in 2002 with a Silver Schie Cock. She said that was her proudest moment. Virginia’s passing was truly a sad day and a loss for the
