As part of the 202One SCOA National Specialty catalogs, we would like to honor Spinoni who passed away during the last year. There is no cost for this memorial tribute. Please provide your beloved pet’s registered name, call name, date of birth and date passed, your name, and a short one-line loving memory or sentiment. You may also include one picture that will be included in a video presentation that will be shown at the National. Please email your information to Becky Tevis at [email protected], no later than August 31, 2021. You will receive an email response to confirm receipt of your information.
PARADE OF VETERANS
The 202One Parade of Veterans honors the veteran Spinoni who have brought credit to the breed in the field, show, rally, obedience, agility, therapy, or other performance areas, and most importantly, as a treasured companion. All Spinoni 7 years of age and older may participate.
For each veteran walking in the parade, please furnish a brief paragraph (100 words or less, anything longer will need to be shortened) which will be read as each dog enters the ring, along with three or four favorite pictures of your veteran, which will be displayed. In addition to the short paragraph, please include the age of the dog, parents (if known), and breeder (if known).
IN ADDITION, FOR THOSE VETERANS WHO ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND: a brief slideshow will be developed and showcased before the parade, honoring those Spinoni who continue to make a difference but did not travel to the National. Please provide 3 or 4 pictures of your veteran throughout the years, including the dog’s full name and call name, age, and the owner’s name.
Please email your information and pictures to Becky Tevis at [email protected], no later than August 31, 2021. You will receive an email response to confirm receipt of your information.
