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.

Sign up here.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
