Kennel Club of Philadelphia Dog Shows to Debut Six New AKC Breeds in Competition

The Kennel Club of Philadelphia Dog Shows including The National Dog Show presented by Purina® will introduce six new breeds at their annual fall cluster of Shows November 19th and 20th at the Greater Philadelphia EXPO Center in Oaks, PA. The six will be among over 160 American Kennel Club (AKC) sanctioned breeds on hand as almost 2,000 dogs compete for the prestigious title of “Best in Breed,” “Best of Group” and Best In Show.” The new breeds making their competition debut include the following: • Entlebucher Mountain Dog - These highly-energetic herding dogs are easy to train and possess an excellent work ethic. A native of Switzerland, the Entle is medium-sized, strongly muscled and generally tricolor, but can be black with tan markings. • Norwegian Lundehund is nicknamed the “Puffin Dog”, because it was originally used to hunt puffin- a kind of penguin. This loyal and playful dog makes an ideal, easy-to-live-with companion. It is a member of the Non-Sporting Group. • Xoloitzcuintli (pronounced show-low-eats-queen-tlee) is one of the world’s oldest breeds and is said to be the first canine of the Americas. Central American and Mexican lore is that the Xolo is able to ward off evil spirits and intruders. The breed comes in three sizes- toy, miniature, and standard - and makes an excellent companion. The Xolo is a member of theNon-Sporting Group. • American English Coonhound is a descendant of the English Foxhound. Bred to adapt to rougher terrain, this member of the Hound Group was typically used for fox and raccoon hunting. Renowned for his speed and endurance, the breed requires regular exercise and activity to stay in peak shape. These Coonhounds are pleasant and sociable with both humans and dogs. • Cesky Terrier is one of the Czech Republic’s national breeds. A less excitable breed of terrier, the Cesky was developed to be worked in packs and has traditionally been used in small game hunting. Sporting a silky charcoal coat, the Cesky requires moderate grooming. These active terriers require constant exercise and socialization. • Finnish Lapphund is native to the Arctic Circle and was originally used for reindeer herding. The Lappie has a sweet, expressive face which is constantly likened to that of a teddy bear. Its double coat makes it intolerant of heat. This friendly, sociable breed makes an excellent companion. The Lapphund is a member of the Herding Group. The Kennel Club of Philadelphia Dog Shows run November 19 & 20 and include the taping for the broadcast of The National Dog Show presented by Purina® on NBC Thanksgiving Day to over 18 million viewers. Plan to bring the children! Get up close to the breeds and speak with their handlers. See Diving Dogs and Go Dog performances each day plus the MetroKids® Family Fun Zone showcases fun festivities that will make the weekend one to remember. Watch the Shows in person at the Greater Philadelphia EXPO Center at Oaks, located just off the Oaks exit of Route 22, 20 miles from Center City Philadelphia and just five miles from King of Prussia and Valley Forge. There’s plenty of free parking. Tickets can be purchased online at nationaldogshow.com. Save some cash and experience all of the fur-raising fun twice with the two-day adult pass, which shaves $8 off regular two- day admissions. A one-day child ticket costs only $7, half of a one-day adult ticket. Plus, children 3 and under are admitted free. This year, add 2,000 new best friends to your circle at the Kennel Club of Philadelphia Dogs Shows! Visit nationaldogshow.com for more details. Follow the Show for the latest updates on Facebook and Twitter!

Launch of New Delaware Business Promotes First State Pride

Are you a proud Delawarean? Whether you were born here, recently relocated or have chosen to attend one of our great First State colleges or Universities, a new online business launching this weekend offers you a variety of ways to publicly display your pride over living in the 302. Delaware302.com is an online store filled with products that incorporate the State’s area code as a way to promote First State pride. These products include 302 T-shirts for men and 302 Girl T-shirts for ladies, 302 oval stickers and magnets to display your pride vehicles, and special wristbands. The business, launching just in time for the holiday season, is the brainchild of Sussex County residents Phil Wojcik and Andrea Summers. After seeing his friend’s 302 tattoo which was set against the state’s background, Wojcik realized that there was a market for people, like his friend, who wanted to “represent” the First State. However, both Wojcik and Summers believe that you don’t have to be born here to show your Delaware pride. “While I was born in Wilmington, and attended high school at Salesianum, my education and career took me from this great state for many years. I was extremely happy for the opportunity to return home. Andrea moved here 17 years ago from Maryland, and together we have fallen in love with our life here and wanted a way to share that in a way that anyone and everyone we come in contact with can see,” said Wojcik. “Delaware302.com is offering us the vehicle for not only us but for hundreds of thousands of other First State residents to do that.” Wojcik said while they’re starting with a small selection of items, they have plans to roll out new designs and new items every 1 – 2 months. Wojcik used his computer programming background to design the website and online store, and Summers her public information background to market the site primarily via social media platforms Facebook and Twitter. “We’re going to share unique and interesting fun facts about Delaware on these sites and want people to start sharing with us why they love Delaware,” said Summers. “We truly want to start a conversation with individuals about why this is such an amazing State in which to live.” In an effort to promote the Facebook page and website, Summers said they’ve also launched a contest to win a Delaware302 prize pack. People can enter by sharing why they are Delaware proud and love living in the 302, and the contest will allow voting American Idol style for the best answer. Delaware302’s owners also believe in philanthropy but more specifically giving to the local community. A portion of sales each month will be donated to the charity of their choice. The duo’s top picks are the Delaware Food Bank at which Wojcik has volunteered and the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition, which supported Summer’s step sister during her battle with the disease. Delaware302 products make great gifts for the holidays. Visit Delaware302’s online store at www.Delaware302.com , friend us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/DE302 or follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/Delaware_302 . Delaware302.com is the online presence of Delaware302 LLC.
