Every Dog Has Its Day

February 24, 1993

A beagle from Chantilly, Va., was chosen best in show for the second straight year at the Maryland Kennel Club's 81st annual all-breed show.

The 13-inch beagle is named Champion Lanbur Miss Fleetwood (but called Judy be her friends), owned by Jeffrey Slatkin and Eddie Dziuk, and was judged top dog amoung about 1,800 entries in the show at Baltimore's Fifth Regiment Armory.

Attendance figures were not available, but organizers from the nonprofit Kennel Club--one of the nation's oldest--described the

turnout as surprisingly large for the weather. A portion of the show's proceeds was to be donated to charity.

Many of the dogs and owners were already in town, having competed a day earlier in the annual Annapolis Kennel Club show-- also held in the Baltimore armory building.

"The inconvenience was getting home," said Eve Ballich, the Maryland Kennel Club president from Stevenson in Baltimore County. "It was snowing pretty hard."
