FAKC President's Message

July 2018

By Susan Smith

The dog days of summer are upon us as well as Florida's hurricane season.  Please take the necessary precautions to protect your dogs and other pets from the heat and humidity.  If you don't have a plan for preparation and/or evacuation with your pets, you need one.  Your registration papers and up-to-date medical records should be in one safe place and easily accessible.

The 2018 Dues Notice was sent out.  This is a once a year request by FAKC to the Florida dog clubs.  These monies allow FAKC to function.  I was pleasantly surprised by the response and support from our specialty and performance clubs as many of them are struggling to survive.  Thank you to those clubs who paid/renewed their membership as well as those who gave to the charitable funds.  The following clubs have not paid their 2018 dues: Clearwater Kennel Club, Doberman Pinscher Club of Florida, Dog Training Club of St. Petersburg, Fort Lauderdale Dog Club, Great Dane Club of Mid-Florida Inc., Greater Daytona Dog Fanciers, Greater Orange Park Dog Club, Greater Tampa Bay Collie Club, Imperial Polk Obedience Club, Indian River Dog Training Club, Jupiter-Tequesta Dog Club Inc., North Florida German Shorthaired Pointer Club, Ochlockonee River Kennel Club, Okaloosa Kennel Club, Orange Blossom Tibetan Spaniel Club of Florida Inc., Seminole Rottweiler Club of North Central Florida, Shetland Sheepdog Club of Southeast Florida, Shih Tzu Fanciers of Central Florida, South Dade Kennel Club, Sunshine State Papillon Club, Tampa Bay Chihuahua Club, Timucuan Weimaraner Club of Florida and the Treasure Coast Kennel Club.  If in error, please contact me at Mikahkid2@aol.com.

A new feature to the FAKC Notes newsletter is a club spotlight.  Brevard Kennel Club is spotlighted in this issue.  Enjoy.

The Annual Meeting Notice has been emailed.  Many bounced: some due to typos, others were rejected or had no accounts with the server information provided to FAKC.  If you have a spam blocker, please be sure to accept email from your FAKC officers.  This is how we keep you informed.  The Annual Meeting will be held on Sunday, August 12, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. at the Sheraton Orlando North Hotel, 600 N. Lake Destiny Drive, Maitland, FL 32751.

I look forward to seeing you there. 

Susan Smith, President
