New England Stabyfest
This was the second year I had the pleasure of attending the New England gathering of Stabyhouns, held in Harvard, Massachusetts.
What a great event! This year, there were Staby Games, a few evaluations from newly minted Stabyhoun judge Lee Brewer, and lot's of laughter and dogs running about! 52 people and 22 Stabyhouns signed up, and it was so much fun seeing younger pups that had grown in just a few months, new owners, and old friends.
It also serves as an introduction for potential breeders to see, in person, the breeding studs and bitches. This year there are many potential pairings and litters expected! It is heartening to see the growth of the breed in the United States, and the participation in strict guidelines and health testing for breeding dogs.
