The Putnam Kennel Club, founded in 1952, held its annual dog show at Veteran Memorial Park in Carmel on July 20 and 21. After judging, awards were presented for purebred conformation, obedience, rally course and junior showmanship. More than 300 dogs competed on Friday and nearly 400 on Saturday, from 20 states.
Margaret Foxmoore of Brewster, the New York editor of the online magazine Daily Dog Devotional, says she has never been disappointed while taking photos at the Putnam show. “The light is perfect, and the dogs are relaxed,” she says.
