Some of the 10 lovely entries in the 15" Open Bitch class, including Jan with Skye (Jan's wearing white, center).

I'd like to extend my thanks and congratulations to the show committee for this wonderful event. To Bill and Janet Neiland, Fred Bremer, and all the rest of the innumerable volunteers, THANK YOU for making this, my first, a National to remember. Jan Jeske
