A Slight oops on the Judging program.
From the Show Chairman: I could have sworn that the I had asked to have the Friday judging start at 9 AM, but apparently I missed the fact that the judging schedule said 8. We are notifying the obedience and rally exhibitors and the judge, that judging WILL begin at 9. Remember that there will be traffic congestion at 8 AM with the school drop offs.

About the heart study.
A landmark study following 1,000 Irish Wolfhounds. This study has been ongoing since April of 2000. There is a high incidence (over 30% of all wolfhounds has some abnormality by age 6) of unique cardiac problems in the Irish Wolfhound.
This study is designed to identify warnings of early cardiac disease. It will follow the course of cardiac problems in individual dogs to gain insights into the course and prognosis of cardiac disease in the Irish Wolfhound.
The health questionnaire returned yearly for each dog in the study also provides information on longevity and other health concerns for the breed. This study involves 5 veterinary cardiologists to interpret the EKGs and data.
This study requires a large number of dogs to participate for their entire life-time but will provide the framework for future investigations into heart disease in our breed.
Conformation judges: Pluis Davern & Tom Powers
