Announcing the Top Dogs Virtual Tour! Join us for a FREE virtual tour of this exhibition! Just reserve a free “ticket” and you will be emailed a link to the tour. No donation is required, but always appreciated.
This exhibition takes a closer look at the top ten breeds, examines their histories, and speculates what exactly about them captures the hearts and minds of so many Americans.
The in-person exhibit at the AKC Museum of the Dog in NYC runs from May 6th to August 31st; I’m assuming the virtual tour is the same.
From The Dog Lady’s mailbag: The AKC Museum of the Dog is excited to announce “Virtual Night with the Museum,” a livestream virtual gala honoring the Museum’s longtime friend, supporter and board member Ronald H. Menaker on Friday, February 12 between 8pm -9pm.
For almost three decades, the Theatre Benefit for the Museum has been Menaker’s passion project and the Museum hopes to continue the tradition virtually with a night of celebrating and showcasing our love of dogs and the Museum’s impact on the community.
Mr. Menaker first served on the AKC Board from 1996 to 1998. Elected again in 2000, he became Vice Chairman in 2001 and served as Chairman since March 2002 until April 2019. He has been actively involved in the sport of purebred dogs for more than 40 years and has contributed to it greatly through his work with fundraising, particularly hosting the annual Theater Benefit.

Every once in a while, I make a post about goings-on at the AKC Museum of the Dog in New York City. What I didn’t know until recently is that they have an awesome museum store that you can access online if you can’t make it to the city so nice they named it twice.
They have holiday items, stationery, and dog toys, among other things. One of my favorites is pictured above and featured in the Home Decor section. It’s a needlepoint valet tray featuring a really cute Bulldog Butler. Continue reading AKC Museum of the Dog Store→
