FRIDAY AFTERNOON EVENTS/FACULTY

Barbara A. Gibson "Dogs Just Want to Have Fun" Event: LURE COURSING

As a tribute to our friend & colleague, Barbara A. Gibson, Door County Scottie Rally’s commitment to dogs having fun and the formation of partnerships between people and their dogs we will be offering a new event called LURE Coursing. LURE COURSING is a sport in which dogs chase a lure around a closed area in zigs and zags. Barbara was well regarded in the arena of events such as agility, rally and barn hunt. She was a barn hunt judge and mentor to anyone who was looking for assistance. It is clear that she inspired many to become partners with their dogs. Barbara unexpectedly passed away in 2019 within a few weeks after her 50th birthday with a late diagnosis of ovarian cancer. She took great pride in getting her boy, Duke da Dude, finished in conformation, and he went on to sire a wonderful litter of puppies. She was co-owner of Aulscots Scottish Terriers with her dear friend, Allene Auld in Hawaii.

Scottie Punch Needle Art Workshop presented by fabric artist and DCSR Board member Philomena Poole, Richland Center, WI This workshop will walk you through making your own Scottie Punch Needle Art pin, charm or keyring. A ticket is required to participate, and class is limited to 5 participants in each session.

SATURDAY EVENTS/ FACULTY

SATURDAY HEALTH SCREENINGS & BREED PRESERVATION

ULTRASOUNDS: As a breed, Scottish terriers are known to have an increased presence of certain health conditions including but not limited to bladder cancer, gallbladder sludge, and liver enzyme elevation. Research done by Purdue University recommends annual abdominal ultrasound screenings beginning at age 6 to enhance detection of abnormalities as early as possible. Abdominal ultrasound screenings will be performed and interpreted by a team of board certified veterinarians and a certified ultrasonagrapher. A flash drive of your dog(s) ultrasound and a brief report will be provided for you to follow-up with your primary care veterinarian. This is a ticketed event and limited to 2 dogs/family. Additional dogs may be placed on a wait list and incorporated into the schedule.

ALL SCOTTIE DNA MATTERS! Blood draws for submission of your Scottie(s) DNA to the Health Trust Fund DNA Bank will be provided and mailed following completion of the Rally. Having these samples banked will contribute to the preservation of the Scottish Terrier breed through HTF approved research studies. There is no cost involved in having DNS BANK blood collected at the Rally. Regardless of your Scottie's background or pedigree----ALL SCOTTIE DNA MATTERS!

SCOTTIE CARICATURE ARTWORK created by Ken Klopack who is a retired public school art teacher in Chicago. He has been active in the Chicagoland and Door County art scene for over four decades. In addition to being an award-winning art teacher, Ken is a political cartoonist and a caricature portrait artist. Ken will be creating a caricature portrait of your Scottie(s) at this limited ticketed event.

ANIMAL COMMUNICATION SESSION with Lynn Schuster will allow you to explore your relationship with your dog.Lynn is a telepathic animal communicator who has the ability to hear what animals have to say.

DCSR IMPACT: Since 2001 Scottish Terriers and their families have gathered in Baileys Harbor to promote fellowship and raise funds for Scottish Terrier Health Research and Scottie Rescue. The efforts of the Door County Scottie Rally, a not for profit 501(c)(3) organization, have resulted in the donation of over $490,000 for Scottie rescue and/or health research that involves or impacts the Scottish Terrier. The Door County Scottie Rally is privileged to have a dedicated volunteer Board who serve the organization year-round with the DCSR mission always in mind. Additionally we began online auctions on social media to enhance our fundraising efforts and increase knowledge of our mission which is to:

  • Foster fellowship among people who are passionate about Scottish Terriers
  • Educate the public and owners regarding issues which impact the health and welfare of Scottish Terriers
  • Provide financial support of Scottish Terrier health related research, and
  • Provide financial support to STCA Scottish Terrier rescue

,Additionally, we provide an energetic slate of virtual webinars on ZOOM as the DCSR ZOOMIES. These sessions are typically recorded and are availble at Door County Scottie Rally website. www.doorcountyscottierally.com

COVID-19 Protection/Prevention: DCSR will not be asking for proof of vaccination status. There will be attendees who are immunocompromised and may wish to remain physically distant, as well as continue to mask.
