    The warm weather is here to stay for awhile. Many people will start to enjoy more outdoor activities, and even travel with their dogs. These times are memorable and precious but....

    Do you know the signs of heatstroke?

    Do you the signs of choking?

    Do you know what to do if your pet stops breathing? 

    Can you help a pet that has been injured? 

    Can you control bleeding in your pet before taking them to the veterinarian? 

    Did you know that 1 out of 4 or more pets could be saved if just one pet first aid technique was applied before getting emergency veterinary care? (per American Animal Hospital Association) 

    If you answered no to any of the questions above, you may benefit from a Pet First Aid and CPR Course.

    Many training and obedience centers offer courses at this time of year. The American Red Cross and PetTech are two organizations that offer this type of course. Locations and dates are available on their websites (listed below). It is a very valuable peace of mind for yourself and your dog!

    On June 1, 2015  AKC will be converting our Foundation Stock Service (FSS) registrations to full recognition AKC registrations. Anyone that has a three generation pedigree is eligible to receive new full recognition AKC registration. They should arrive in the month of June so don't panic if you don't receive it right away. There are three reasons you may not get one:1) If you have a new address since you first got your FSS registration. Check your address on your registration. If it is incorrect email fss@akc.org with your FSS number, dogs name and your name with the corrected address, specifying that it is an address correction and you wish to have a converted  AKC registration..2) If your dog is over the age of five years it will not convert automatically. If you wish to have one you will need to contact fss@akc.org. Give them your FSS number and name of your dog along with your name and address explaining your dogs age and your wish to have a converted AKC registration. 3) You may not have a three generation pedigree Only dogs with three generation pedigrees are eligible for the full recognition AKC registration. If you have a one or two generation pedigree you are not eligible to get the new AKC registration. If you  believe that you do have a 3 generation pedigree and have not received it in the mail by the end of June, please contact Theresa Nehemiah (TheresaNehemiah@yahoo.com) for verification.
    Any questions or concerns may be emailed to TheresaNehemiah@yahoo.com

    This week is National Volunteer Week. This is a week to shine the light of gratitude on people who have volunteered their time, knowledge, effort and/or skill with an organization or group. The LRCA would like to say thank you to those members who have helped the Club continue to grow by spreading knowledge of the breed and tirelessly working to protect the Breed standard. We want to thank, not only those who have served on Committees and at Events, but we would also like to thank those who have shared their experiences and advise on the Club chat board or Facebook page. Each person has helped to support the Club’s mission and support the breed. We are grateful to you. We thank you for your dedication to the Club, and most importantly to the Lagotto Romagnolo.

    THANK YOU!

    The new web site has many features that will enhance our ability to share information with the public and our members. Over the next several months we will be adding new features and more information to the site.

    One of the benefits of this new system is a comprehensive membership and event management system, which will facilitate membership applications, notifications, renewals and event notices & registration. All of our members will be able to log into the system and manage the information in their profiles.

    You will be receiving an email from the new site that will give you a link to log into the system and a temporary password. You will be able to log into the Members Area with the temporary password and go to your profile to change the password.

    Be sure to check your SPAM filters for the email in case it gets filtered out.

    We encourage you to take a few minutes to tour the new site and become familiar with the new features. Please keep in mind that this is a work in progress and the website team is learning about the new functionality along with you.

    Enjoy the new site and we will keep you updated as it continues to expand.
