Steven Ng has his usual excellent and educational look at your camera and your dogs. This issue’s title is 'Sharing Your Photos'.
In her story, 'More Than Just A Show', we learn from Suzanne McKay that there is more going on in NYC during Westminster than meets the eye. Read her article and learn about the prestigious award she won from the Dog Writers Association of America.

'Being There, New York, New York' is Rita’s take on this year’s Westminster where she had the opportunity to sit ringside and in a box seat. I think I’d prefer ringside but I’d not turn down either opportunity.
