Through club membership we debate issues of health and legislation presented in the modern purebred world. We educate each other in the various organized events our dogs are eligible for so as to show the public the versatility of our breed.. We congratulate each other in our successes and we comfort each other in our times of sorrow. Together we are stronger than as lone individuals.
