The two Circa 1907 articles below are pretty amazing and extremely entertaining. They both report a quarrel and law suit between Miss. Ada Olive Van Heusen who would later become Mrs. E.K.Lincoln (GREENACRE KENNELS) and The Belgian Princess Montglyon who was the Chow Chow Club of America’s first president in 1906. I have over 15 antique articles in my collection on this highly publicized dog show drama, but these two in particular are elaborately illustrated to the hilt!!!
This first article needed to be deconstructed because of the layout so I could read it , so I am presenting it to you this way as well. The photo of Chin Chin is the only one I have found despite how high profile this quarrel was . Just think, in 1907 when all this was happening, there were ONLY 48 CHOWS registered in America with the AKC.

NOTE: I do believe a bit of “creative license” was taken on the weight of Chin Chino. His head would have weighed more than that.
ARTICLE TWO IS BELOW

Absolutely the best dog breed. If loved and trained right the best companion you could ask for.
I got my 1st girl in 1981 and now I have 3rd. I’m 61 now and really couldn’t imagine life without one.
