Did you know there are 14 breeds of dogs that originated in Scotland? Come and meet them at the Capital District Scottish Games Dog Show!
This year we celebrate the 36th annual dog show at the CDSG. Diana Martin has chaired this event since it’s inception. Diana decided to retire from that job this year and she will be missed. My name is Fran Smith. My daughter, Celeste Johnson, and I have been assisting Diana for several years and have agreed to be co-chairs, so the show will go on!
Steve Caporizzo, long time Master of Ceremonies for the Breed Exhibition, has also retired from our event. This year we are welcoming Robert Mitchell as our announcer of the Scottish Dog Breeds. Robert is from Scotland, loves dogs, and has been “owned” by several.
We are also happy to welcome Maggie Devenpeck and Alicia Ranniccia from Resolute K9. They will put on a Frisbee Dog demonstration for us.
Our program begins at 1:30 with an exhibition of the 14 dog breeds that originated in Scotland. Barry Smith from the Schenectady Pipe Band will start things off by piping all of the dogs in a parade around the ring. After that, Mr. Mitchell will introduce each dog.
Once you have met all of the dogs, Maggie and Alicia will take over with their border collies. They will demonstrate the amazing sport of Frisbee Dog work.
So come and meet the dogs. They are waiting to meet you!
