Visitors from abroad...
......................................Larry Wharton, our official announcer, gave visitors from the Netherlands a warm welcome over the loudspeakers. Their names are Henny M. Schoor and Yel C. M. Boomgaard; they have brought their two Labradors to the States to run a hunt test in Maine this coming weekend. These women planned the National into their trip so they could view a few setups before going to Maine.
Henny tells me that there is no down time with paperwork or customs to bring dogs "across the pond" from the United Kingdom into the United States. However, the reverse is not true; she states that U.S. citizens need eight months of lead time to finish paperwork and meet regulations to travel with dogs to the UK.
