Many people consider adopting a dog but question: what if they want to save a dog’s life but don’t know where to begin and need expert advice? What must they do to integrate the new pet into their home?
Enter Diane Rose-Solomon. Over the last 20 years, Diane has worked with rescued dogs, helping them re-enter a world where people are kind to them. She has gathered a national network of colleagues who are top pet professionals. Through her volunteerism with rescue organizations, she’s met many prospective pet owners asking questions and voicing concerns about pet adoption.
What to Expect When Adopting a Dog offers expert advice from rescue specialists, veterinarians, dog parents, and pet business owners with links to the best, most relevant articles from pet professionals, making this book a one-stop shop for all dog-related questions, before, during, and after adoption.
The book answers questions like whether dog adoption is right for you, how to adopt a dog from a shelter or rescue group, how to prepare your home for a new member, integrating the dog into your home, family, lifestyle, and more. In five modules, Diane leads the reader through all the steps they should take to decide on a dog, go through the adoption process, bring the new pet home, as well as lifelong care. And, with the shorter lives of animals, she delivers a heartfelt chapter on saying goodbye to a pet.
There are thousands of dogs waiting for a loving home. This book educates a prospective pet parent on what to expect and how to add the joy of dog parenting.

After rescuing a puppy 21 years ago,
Diane Rose-Solomon became involved in animal rescue and education,serving for years on the board of directors of a small grassroots organization, the Animal Guardian Society. To give back more to the animal community, she became a Certified Humane Education Specialist through Humane Society University in 2009.

Diane enjoys reading her stories to children in schools, libraries and at adoption events. Her goal is to educate children and adults about how compassion extends to all beings, human and animal. To this end, she founded Team Kindness, a program where children, families and teachers learn about and engage in kind and humane educational activities.
Diane’s newest nonfiction title, What to Expect When Adopting a Dog was released in September 2016. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two children and two rescued dogs.

Gail Miller Bisher is the director of communications for the Westminster Kennel Club.

Bisher has been a media professional for many years and has had life-long involvement in canine sport, getting her start in the sport in Junior Showmanship, where she once won second place at Westminster. She is an AKC-licensed conformation judge and a Canine Good Citizen evaluator.

"As the new ‘face' of the Westminster Kennel Club, I look forward to continuing a legacy of quality and prestige while increasing our brand’s presence and audience size," she said.

"It’s an honor to return to the Westminster in this capacity. It’s an exciting time of transition for this historic organization and I plan to do as any dog handler does: access, improve where needed, and practice teamwork. I believe in the leadership’s vision and I’m eager to start executing it."

In 1876, the members of the Westminster Club, then primarily a shooting organization, commissioned one of its early officials, George deForest Grant, to send to England for a Pointer which the members could use for breeding purposes.

He received a photograph of a dog named Don which had won his bench championship in England, through show triumphs at Shifnal, Oswestry, Birmingham, Swansea and Llanelly in 1875, and at Newport and Carmarthen in 1876. Impressed with the pictures of the dog as much as with his show record, the members arranged to import him under the name of “Sensation,” Volume IV of the English Kennel Club Stud Book listing him as “Sensation (formerly Don).”

Sensation

Brought to this country, “Sensation” was promptly registered in the name of the Westminster Kennel Club in Volume I of the stud book of the National American Kennel Club, which subsequently became the American Kennel Club. His entry in that book as Number 1261 shows that he gained his American championship with victories at Baltimore in 1876 and at St. Louis, Boston and Baltimore in 1879. His show career, however, was limited since the primary object in his importation was to strengthen the breeding stock of the club’s members.

A handsome lemon and white dog, with a fine head and especially good body, “Sensation” did much for Pointer breeders in this country. Several artists did pictures of him and one of the head studies appeared on the Westminster catalog in 1878, the second all-breed show given by the club. Except for a gap between 1896 and 1903, “Sensation’s” head appeared on all subsequent catalogues of the Westminster Show through 1935.

In 1935, a steel engraving of “Sensation” was discovered in the collection of prints, engravings and paintings of the well-known sportsman, Harry D. Kirkover, of Camden, South Carolina and New York. He loaned the picture to the Westminster Club to permit its reproduction.

The engraving, by artist J. Wellstood, showed the whole dog, with a light lemon patch on its side, frozen in point. The artist had caught the magnificently bodied dog in marvelous detail. The muscles and even the veins of the legs stood out.

This became the new emblem of the club and appeared on the cover of the show catalog from 1936 through 1979. From 1980-1982, a head study of Sensation was selected once again for the cover, but in 1983 a foil embossed version of the full body engraving appeared on the cover and has been there ever since.

 

In 1877, New York was well on its way to becoming the world’s greatest city. This was the year that a group of sporting gentlemen decided that this would be a good time to hold a dog show in Manhattan. It didn’t take long before the Westminster Kennel Club, following the lead of its home town, would be on its way to becoming the world’s greatest dog show.

westmisterhotelWith its spectacular beginnings and extraordinary growth in the years to follow, the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show was quickly reflecting the growth and success of New York City. As the dog show grew every year, so did the Westminster Kennel Club’s position as the symbol of the purebred dog, with its influence being felt in show rings everywhere, and eventually in millions of television homes across the country. Westminster has become America’s Dog Show.

“Westminster gets its name from a long gone hotel in Manhattan. There, sporting gentlemen used to meet in the bar to drink and lie about their shooting accomplishments. Eventually they formed a club and bought a training area and kennel. They kept their dogs there and hired a trainer.

“They couldn’t agree on the name for their new club. But finally someone suggested that they name it after their favorite bar. The idea was unanimously selected, we imagine, with the hoisting of a dozen drinking arms.”
– Maxwell Riddle, from a newspaper story quoted in “The Dog Show, 125 Years of Westminster” by William Stifel

It was at one of those meetings that the members decided that they would stage a dog show so that they could compare their dogs in a setting away from the field. The First Annual New York Bench Show of Dogs, given under the auspices of the Westminster Kennel Club, was staged in 1877 at Gilmore’s Garden (the forerunner of Madison Square Garden) in New York City, drawing an entry of 1,201 dogs.

The show was such a hit that it was extended to four days from its originally-scheduled three, and drew this coverage from “Forest and Stream” magazine:

“To say that the dog show held in the city last week was a success would but poorly convey an idea of what the result really was. It was a magnificent triumph for the dogs and for the projectors of the show. We question if on any previous occasion has there ever assembled in this city such a number of people at one time, and representing as much of the culture, wealth and fashion of the town.”

rings1877To fully grasp the place in history of the Westminster Kennel Club and its famed annual dog show at Madison Square Garden, consider this:

Westminster pre-dates the invention of the light bulb, the automobile, and the zipper; the building of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Washington Monument; and manned air flight and the establishment of the World Series. Since Westminster held its first show 127 years ago, there have been 26 men elected president and 12 states have joined the union.

The dog show has outlasted three previous versions of Madison Square Garden, and is currently being staged in MSG IV. It is one of only four events to be held in all four “Gardens.”
The dog show has survived power outages, snowstorms, a national depression, two World Wars and a tugboat strike that threatened to shut down the city, in the process becoming the second longest continuously held sporting event in the country. Only the Kentucky Derby has been staged longer – but by just one year.

Westminster even pre-dates the establishment of the governing body of the sport, the American Kennel Club, by seven years. In fact, in 1877, members of Westminster and members of the Kennel Club of Philadelphia had together adopted a set of show rules and regulations and established a Board of Appeals to oversee these rules. This was the precursor of the American Kennel Club, which was finally created in 1884.

As one might imagine, the history of the club and its show is rich and colorful.

In the early Westminster years, some interesting names showed up in the catalogs. In the first show, there were two Staghounds listed as being from the late General George Custer’s pack, and two Deerhounds that had been bred by the Queen of England. In 1889, the Czar of Russia is listed as the breeder of a Siberian Wolfhound entered, and the following year, one of the entries is a Russian Wolfhound whose listed owner was the Emperor of Germany.

Philanthropist J. P. Morgan made the first of his many appearances at Westminster with his Collies in 1893. Famous American journalist Nelly Bly entered her Maltese at Westminster in 1894, some four years after she made a record-breaking trip around the world in 72 days, 6 hours and 11 minutes, racing the record of Phineas Fogg in Jules Verne’s Around the World in Eighty Days.

warrenremedyThe most-coveted award in the dog show world, Best In Show at Westminster, was given for the first time in 1907. That year, and for the next two years as well, it went to a Smooth Fox Terrier bitch named Ch. Warren Remedy. She remains the only dog ever to win three times.

Six other dogs have won Best In Show twice, the most recent being the English Springer Spaniel, Ch. Chinoe’s Adamant James in 1971 and 1972.

Susan M. Ewing has been “in dogs” for over 35 years, and has written eleven dog books, including Bulldogs for Dummies, Poodles for Dummies, and The Pembroke Welsh Corgi: Family Friend and Farmhand. She writes a bi-weekly pet column for The Post-Journal of Jamestown, NY and has written for many national cat and dog publications. Her latest book, American Pit Bull Terrier, won a Maxwell. She is a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, the Dog Writer’s Association of America and Cat Writers’ Association, of which she is president. Her cat flash cards, Cats! Train Your Owner! won a CWA Muse medallion, as well as the coveted President’s Award. She lives in Jamestown, NY with her husband, Jim, and two Corgis, Rhiannon and Gael.

History of the Dog Writers Association of America

The Dog Writers Association was created on February 13th, 1935 at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. A group of editors and publishers were invited to the Westminster Kennel Club’s meeting room of the old Madison Square Garden, then located on Eighth Avenue and Fiftieth Street.

All that survives of the first meeting is a crumbling, yellow sheet of note paper “DUES PAID AT FIRST MEETING” listing the names of eight people. These early meeting minutes set dues and decided that an annual meeting would be held in New York City every year immediately before the Westminster Kennel Club show.

From those eight founding members, DWAA has grown to a thriving membership of over 500.

From its very beginning, the DWAA objective has been to secure courtesies and amenities at dog shows so necessary for dog writers to do their jobs properly. Press facilities with laptop computers, tables, show results, catalogs and judging programs are now the established rule for dog shows around the country.

The best known feature of the DWAA is the annual writing contest, which encourages excellence in writing about dogs in all aspects of communication. The competition is open to all writers, photographers, editors and publishers — with no distinction between amateurs and professionals.

The annual awards program has traditionally been held the day before the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show to present the awards to the winners of the writing competition. The results are published around the world.

In Memoriam of Mordecai Siegal

Mordecai Siegal, DWAA president from 1994 to 2000 and noted author of 38 pet books, passed away April 2, 2010. Siegal was the recipient of the 2007 DWAA Hall of Fame Award for his decades of devotion to dog writing and the DWAA. He was named the 2000 and the 1994 Distinguished Service Awardee, was the recipient of numerous Maxwell Medallions, and a Lifetime Honorary Board Member. He joined the organization in 1974. In writing about DWAA, he said:

   Most of my colleagues are fellow dog writers who belong to the organization nearest and dearest to my heart, the Dog Writers Association of America. If you have a passion for dogs, write a lot, a little, for the love it, or for the hell of it, I invite you to join us at the DWAA. Sometimes we’re good company and sometimes we are irritating beyond belief, but we are always interesting. At DWAA there is friendship to be found, networking to take advantage of, and at important times, a helping hand.

Bash Dibra is a big, ebullient man with a warm smile, a gentle manner, and a lifelong affinity for dogs. When he was only three years old and fled with his family from Albania to a refugee camp in Yugoslavia, he made friends with the attack dogs that guarded the compound. Later, as the family traveled through Europe, Bash was able to work with master dog trainers, and he continued his work when he came to the United States. Then came the opportunity to raise and train a wolf, and through this experience Bash developed his unique methods of dog training.

Bash & Friends.jpgAs author of six best-selling books on responsible pet ownership, training and the proper treatment of animals in the entertainment industry, Bash Dibra sets the industry standard of service to celebrities and their pets as well as to pets who are celebrities in their own right. Mr. Dibra has trained the pets of countless celebrities, including Matthew Broderick, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathleen Turner, Mariah Carey, Joan Rivers, Kim Bassinger and Alec Baldwin. His own pets are celebrities themselves, featured in motion pictures, television commercials and print ads.

Bash has appeared on countless TV shows promoting responsible pet ownership, and he works diligently behind the scenes for animal welfare and to promote animals in service to mankind. Bash credits his incredible way with dogs to his beloved wolf, Mariah, who taught him so much, and who was the official symbol of the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo.

Charlotte Reed is a popular pet expert that routinely brightens up television screens, graces radio waves, appears on best selling authors' lists and can be found lecturing at sold-out seminars.

As the fore-most expert on everything pet related, Reed counts her unique entrance into the pet industry as a source for her excitement, knowledge and dedication. Feeling a bit under the weather one afternoon, Reed decided to cut her day short working as a securities attorney at a Wall Street firm. Upon returning to her apartment, Reed was surprised to find her friendly, male dog walker…wearing an expensive gown and voguing (highly stylized modern dance characterized by photo model-like poses integrated with angular, linear and rigid arm, leg, and body movement) in a full-length mirror as her dogs watched the dance performance for the loft above. It was right then that Reed decided that the care of her Katie and Kidder, two American Cocker Spaniels, was only to be trusted to a genuine pet professional, not a male, Madonna wannabe. After not being able to find one, Reed left her job on Wall Street and founded the ultimate pet care firm, Two Dogs & A Goat Incorporated.

Reed’s story did not end there but has been chronicled in pages of New York Magazine, Smart Money and others. Her story has grown to become a New York City legend. A few years ago, Reed was attending a lavish party at the Gramercy Park Hotel when a well-known agent launched into a crowd pleasing story. Unbeknownst to him it was about Reed’s run-in with the dancing dog walker. Reed promptly offered up a few corrections of the story, shocking both the agent and his entertained audience. When asked how she knew the details, she responded that she was the story’s canine champion. Hence, the laughter never stopped; but, neither has Reed’s pet-friendly career nor has she failed to hear her story told again and again.

From the day of the incident, Reed has advised, suggested and advocated on behalf of pets and their people. Whether it was an famous songstress wanting her Maltipoo styled for a woman’s magazine photo shoot; an owner of a lost pet seeking advice how to find his dog; an award-winning pianist needing expert training tips for his three Labradors; a favorite, court house waitress desiring a solution her cat’s constant scratching; or even, a global pr firm requiring help understanding pet consumer behavior, Reed continues to provide the solution-oriented and cost-effective answers to lead happier and healthier pet lifestyles.
