The countdown to one of my favorite events of the year is officially on...The Shaggy Dog Show! It’s the biggest annual fundraiser for the KSPCA (the Kenya Society of the Care and Protection of Animals)./lifestyle/the-shaggy-dog-show-great-fun-for-a-great-cause
Over the tense waiting period last weekend after the elections, the hardcore dog folks were at the East Africa Kennel Club showgrounds in Jamhuri for the 46th Open Championship Dog Show/lifestyle/the-show-must-go-on-the-dog-show-that-is
Last weekend was the East African Kennel Club Craft Fair to raise money for the Kennel Club. It was hot but really, really nice to see families out with their dogs! There were beautiful pedigree dogs, and much loved mixed breed mutts as well./lifestyle/a-dogs-day-out
Many new arrivals in Kenya go to the KSPCA and come up with a long list of complaints; they have too many dogs, cats wandering around, they don’t have fancy flyers, they don’t have adoptable pets on their website, they aren’t open on Sunday the list goes on and on. However, for an organization that gets by solely on donations (no money from the Kenyan government) they don’t do such a bad job./lifestyle/the-shaggy-dog-show-and-what-the-kspca-does
Amy grew up on a game farm in Indiana, USA so her lifelong association with animals started at a very early age. Her horses ran with the zebra, camels, buffalo and llama.

Amy oversaw all events at the residence and dachas, including 7 visits of the US President and Vice President.After a 15 year career in Hospitality Management, Amy took off her high heels to return to her roots and work extensively with the Labrador Retriever Club of the Potomac (a rescue started by ethical Labrador breeders) in Virginia, USA where she trained foster dogs and helped many dogs overcome behavioral issues. She also raised puppies for the CETC (Canine Enforcement Training Center) in Front Royal, VA. Five of the 6 puppies she raised went on to detect drugs and currency for US Customs and Border Patrol.Amy has been in Kenya since 2006 where she founded the East African Kennel Club and has been an active member ever since. She also belongs to the Labrador Retriever Club of Kenya and the Ladies Kennel Association. She teaches the Wednesday morning socialization class for the Labrador Club, the beginner’s obedience class on Saturday afternoons run by the German Shepherd Dog League and has recently started teaching a communication class for the Kenya Police Dog Section for the new dog handling recruits.
