Below you will find 2 incredible articles from 1920. One is an indepth report of the first Chow Club of America’s National Specialty in 1920. Held in conjunction with the Westminster Kennel Club the show drew a total of 245 total entries(double and triple entering classes was very popular in the day) The other article is an announcement of the show, one month before it took place. Both provide an insight into the popularity of this quickly developing breed in America. I hope to add photos of some of the dogs and people mentioned in the articles to illustrate better the vibe of the show.
