Rose City Classic


Rose City Classic
January 18-22, 2007 - Portland, Oregon

The Annual Rose City Classic was once again a celebration of dogs. Held in Portland, Oregon, Jan. 18 - 22, this premier event hosts competition among many of the nation's top dogs, educational seminars for aspiring and veteran judges and breeders, and canine health clinics. At the spectator-friendly Portland Metropolitan Exposition Center, show-giving clubs offered tours explaining the workings of a dog show for visitors young and old. This year the Take The Lead Charitable Foundation hosted a breakfast and raffle enjoyed by many. The Rose City Classic was the final assignment for Bill Holbrook as an AKC Executive Field Representative. Holbrook is retiring after 28 years in this position, and many fanciers took this opportunity to thank him for his contributions to the sport and wish him well in his future activities.
