Holly Hotel has been described as one of the most notorious haunted places in all of Michigan. World-famous ghost hunter and professor of parapsychology, Norman Gauthier, visited the hotel in 1989 and declared the place “loaded with spirits." Since then, a variety of independent groups have investigated the hotel - and concurred. Visitors have told of smelling cigar smoke and sweet floral perfume, as well as hearing disembodied voices in the halls late at night (this stuff never seems to happen in broad day light).

Most striking are frequent and continued reports of guests who see and hear the spirit of Leona, the dog of former hotel owner Mr. Hirst who was described as a rat terrier. Leona can be heard barking and running down the halls, and has brushed up against people’s legs.

Do you believe in ghosts?

The Board, management and staff of the American Kennel Club feel tremendously fortunate to be able to host the AKC National Championship in 2020 despite the pandemic.

Since authorities remind us that there is risk in any type of large gathering, we are proceeding with our National Championship Week events with great care and implementing health and safety protocols beyond those recommended to mitigate risks to the best of our ability. We know how important these events are to our breeders, handlers, owners, vendors, superintendents and show secretaries and we owe it to our Sport to uphold this important annual tradition even if under modified conditions.

Social Distancing and masks are two of the many safety precautions that will be required at the Orange County Convention Center this year. It is a responsibility we must all share in order to safely hold and enjoy the events during National Championship Week.

Social distancing means staying at least six feet apart from individuals outside of one’s household and not congregating unnecessarily. Therefore, the Show Committee has instituted a “Show and Go” policy for this year’s competitions in conformation, agility, obedience, rally, Fast Cat and diving dogs. No owners, handlers or exhibitors may remain ringside once their dog has completed competition. Unless you have been asked to remain nearby for further judging, you must return to your crating area or grooming set-up or leave the convention center. No ringside seats will be provided or permitted.

We recognize that participating in the AKC National Championship is not only about competing and meeting personal goals, it’s about studying one’s breed(s), evaluating the quality of the entries, observing judges’ procedures and selections, and reuniting with friends. We also understand that it will take more than the usual amount of effort to be a part of our events this year. A “Show and Go” policy is not the ideal way to experience the Championship, but it is a decision made to best keep our participants safe.

In light of the necessary changes due to the pandemic, we are pleased to offer a viewing solution to enhance your experience of the National Championship: daytime conformation breed judging in all rings will be live streamed all day on Saturday, December 12 and Sunday, December 13, 2020. Our participants and dog show enthusiasts around the world who are unable to travel can now view the entire competition while away from the rings.

Breed judging live streams will be available at AKCChampionshipLive.com. This will mark the first time that the judging of every single breed will be viewable online, in real time. In order to provide this level of coverage, there will be a one-time streaming fee of $3 for one day of all-breed judging or $5 for both days.

Fees to watch the breed live streams are purely at cost. One-hundred percent of any net proceeds will be donated equally to the following dog related charities; Take the Lead to further the care of fellow exhibitors; AKC Humane Fund to support Parent Club breed rescue and domestic violence shelters that permit pets; the AKC Canine Health Foundation to support Parent Club research grants; AKC Reunite to help support AKC Pet Disaster Relief and the AKC Museum of the Dog.

As always, the National Championship Groups and Best in Show, Best Bred-by Exhibitor and BBE Groups, NOHS Groups and Finals, Puppy & Junior Stakes Groups and Best in Stakes, Junior Showmanship Finals, Agility, Obedience, and Rally will continue to be live streamed on a complimentary basis on AKCtv and will remain available on demand.

To download the AKCtv app, visit the app store on your iPhone or Android device. For more ways to watch, visit akc.tv/support.

2020 has been a year like no other, and this year’s AKC National Championship Week will certainly feel different from those that have come before it. We appreciate the sacrifices you will all make to be a part of this year’s events in Orlando. This year, more than ever, our National Championship will depend on the flexibility, sportsmanship and camaraderie that defines our dog show community.

Thank you for your understanding and support.

You would remember actor, Christopher Knight, as the middle child, Peter, in the TV series, The Brady Bunch.

He has shared this strange anecdote that happened while he was filming a ghost episode of the show. The cast was staying at a creepy bed and breakfast and ha stayed up late telling ghost stories before finally going to bed.

According to Knight, he woke up in the middle of the night to find two hunting dogs sitting at the foot of his bed, staring at him. Then, he saw a little girl gazing at him from the doorway. Neither the dogs nor the girl made a sound.

The next day, when Knight told the staff about his strange encounter. The B&B owner took him to a fireplace where a picture of two hunting dogs were depicted on the old fireplace metal fireguard.

They were the same dogs that Peter saw in the night.

The mysterious experience left the young actor shaken, and to this day, he's never forgotten it.

Have you ever seen something involving dogs that you couldn't explain? (inexplicable judging at a dog show doesn't count).

The rule of thumb at the time was that no puppy could be promising unless its ears were long enough to lap around the nose and be tied into a knot, figuratively speaking. And then came the July Hound.

I am a digital artist/photographer. A lot of my work is creating memories of people and pets. My work endeavors to tell a story. Perhaps you would like to visit my page: facebook.com/judirichardsphotography
It was nice to see you at the dock doving today. Looking forward to seeing the pics you took of my boy and our friends!!
Hello, my name is Judi Richards, I am a photographer/digital artist. I would like to share with you my latest commission and Poppets story. The story may seem long, but this is how Tish Elisabeth Hudgens remembers her heart dog. facebook.com/judirichardsphotography Ok - I’m sending you Poppet’s story - it’s lengthy but I don’t want to leave any part of it out. I’d love to combine it with the story of how you created this piece and post/share it at the same time you do if that is ok with you. 😊 Tish Elisabeth Hudgens Poppet was my ♥️ dog, plain and simple. It has been almost a year since I lost her at age 11 & 1/2. I was so devastated by her passing, followed only six weeks later by my 12-year-old Doberman, Rainy, joining her at the Rainbow Bridge, that I couldn’t bring myself to even post about it. Since that time it’s been my desire to have something unique and beautiful created as a tribute to how very special she was and will always be to me, something that tells the story of her life and how she made my own life so much brighter. I’m am beyond happy to share that Judi Richards Photography has done a phenomenal job of doing just that, and has created that an artistic memorial beyond what I could have dreamed of. Her talent is amazing, and I’m so pleased to share what she has imagined and brought to life on canvas, a work of art for which I will always be indebted to her! She has managed to tell Poppet’s life story with only five photographs chosen from twice that many I provided for her. Making this project even tougher was the fact that Pop hated having her picture taken, so I don’t have very many I was able to “sneak” throughout her life. Poppet was special in so many ways. She was the alpha dog in my pack no matter what that pack included during her time - Dobermans, Frenchies, Dachshunds, and an assortment of others along the way. She ruled with dignity and grace - no heavy-handed intensity necessary; it was a no-nonsense aura she carried, and it was felt by all and respected. The main photo on the far left represents that part of her - serene, yet keeping a watchful eye out for anything unacceptable. Her huge Frenchie smile and dark bright eyes were her trademark and I feel the true essence of her soul and being, along with her wiggly flag-tail. You could see her intelligence in those eyes, and her sparkle and sense of mirth, like she had a wonderful joke to tell or was getting ready to pull your leg. She was the foundation of Sapphire Skies French Bulldogs, represented by the top right photo. I bought her purely as a loving pet and companion, but it wasn’t long before I was bitten by the show bug. I had shown dogs in obedience and briefly in confirmation much earlier in my life, so after obtaining permission from her breeder to show her, we gave it a try. She had a great personality for it, but she had that darned flag tail, so did not go on to earn her championship, but it was fun, and she was a winner in so many other ways, most importantly in bringing so much joy to my life during a time when I really needed it. She did produce two litters, the first being a brindle boy singleton - for those of you who know me - that’s my little quirky, funny, little alien, Panda, who I could not bear to part with and is living his best life with me still, now 9 years old. Her second and final litter produced my golden girls - Patience, Promise & Breezy. Breezy went to my friend Carrie Peterson and became her foundation bitch. I kept Promise and Patience - and Patience went on to produce my lovely Peyton (GCH Sapphire Skies Front Page News With TikiBull). I see so many wonderful qualities from Poppet in her, and I look forward to future generations. I think she and I did really well by each other. Poppet was confident, yet laid-back and a real sweetheart - just an all-around fun girl to be around. I took the middle photo of her laying on her back in the grass when she was about 5 months old, and it’s one of my favorites and feel it represents those qualities in her. And Pop embodied all the wonderful traits of a French Bulldog - she was a clown, happy-go-lucky, lovable, mischievous, sometimes naughty, stubborn and silly! One of her favorite things to do was to put her two front feet in a big water bowl and splash the water back on her tummy to cool down. It could be messy and sometimes exasperating, but always made me laugh, so I had to include a photo that represented that side of her down on the bottom right. And of course, the rainbow because she is no longer beside me here in the physical world, but at the Bridge where I will be reunited with her one day. She was a magical part of my life, and Judi has captured that magic and somehow transformed it into a remarkable work of art that I will always treasure! I cannot wait for the 16x20 original to arrive, and you will have to put up with me sharing again at that time! Judi is wonderfully talented and was amazing to work with, wanting to know Poppet’s story, everything about her and our journey together - she really listened and cared, and the results are more perfect than I ever imagined possible. Have a look at her fantastic, imaginative one-of-a-kind creations on her page, Judi Richards Photography. Just like I tell first-time Frenchie owners: this may be your first, but it won’t be your last - I feel that exact same way about Judi’s artwork!
This is a portrait I rendered of my Stumpy for his 11th birthday. It is a composite which includes Cutter, myself, the heron he chases up and down the beach, Cutter retrieving a stick from the sea, the old gear we sit on and the pylons that were part of the wharf at the Port of Union Bay where we walk almost every day. facebook.com/judirichardsphotography

A very long but happy day at Crufts. Joseph Best Puppy, the only puppy but he showed well. Hattie ended her show career in her own inimitable fashion with a 2nd in Limit Bitch. She has done me proud for the last 6 years. Thanks to our judge Denise Bettis, and thank you Denise for your lovely gift of an embroidered show bag. Congratulations to Christine Bell and Stephen on Oliver's BoB, good luck in the Group.
