Our club locates and archives older articles, which are incredibly valuable with their indispensable information on the history of the breed and breeding tips from the old masters.
Additionally, we seek out experts on the breed to write new articles today. There is only so much information out there on the breed, so it is important for us to publish new information and keep folks up to date on the state of the breed.
Below are a few samples of our articles. We send new articles with each quarterly newsletter to our members.
