One local pup was among those at the center of attention at the American Kennel Club’s Meet the Breeds event last week.
Held at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in Manhattan on January 28 and 29, a Swedish Vallhund from Breezy Point was one of more than 130 dog breeds available to meet at this ticketed event. Erin Grant’s pup, “Daisy”, Skyfyre Tower of Terror, was one of the breed ambassadors for the convention.
“Daisy did a great job and had an amazing time educating the public on being the original Viking dog that almost went extinct in the 1940s and came to the U.S. in the 1980s. They were bred to heard cattle, for vermin control and as the farm’s alarm system. They are high energy and great family dogs. Can’t wait to go again next year!”
