Notice to all CKC and foreign conformation judges - the Japanese Chin breed standard distributed by the Canadian Kennel Club in November 2017, is incorrect. Steps are being taken by the JCCC Inc. to have the CKC retract, correct and issue a correct Japanese Chin breed standard prior to its January 1st, 2018 effective date.
"On behalf of the Japanese Chin Club of Canada Inc., tremendous thanks to all who made our 11th annual specialty a success, especially the exhibitors from Toronto, Arizona, California, Nevada and Oregon. Tremendous bouquets of thanks to:
Breed expert Judge Mr. Osamu Toyokawa, who travelled from Japan, for your very gentle and thorough assessment of the Chin; Ring Steward Brenda Anwyll for many smiles that put exhibitors at ease; Classic Show Services for very professional secretarial support; trophy fund donors for your tremendous generosity- Jamie Churchward, Marg Conway, Gail H Forsythe, Tracy Hart, Jane Pearson, Sherrill Morrison, Anita Sanders, Carol Suvoski and Judy Van Dusen; for 20 Hospitality Bags thanks to Donors - Anita Sanders, Carol Suvoski, the JCCC Inc and Kurt Williams; our Hospitality breakfast donor who treated exhibitors to muffins, sweets, fruit, juice and water - Michelle Mixon; and to all who helped set up and take down the show - especially Kurt Williams who moved boxes and hospitality bags, packed and unpacked, took ringside photos and must have run a few kilometres getting it all done; and to my dear friends for so capably handling my dogs at the specialty and all breed shows - Nancy Verhoog, Karen E. Wills and Kurt Williams. Photos to follow including a group photo by Teddy who was so patient with the Chin. Much appreciation to the Lower Mainland Dog Fanciers Society for providing a great venue, ring equipment, the services of a wonderful Chin specialist judge and 5 shows." Gail Forsythe
