American Spaniel Club Foundation's 5th Annual Parade of Rescues
The 5th Annual Parade of Rescues was held in Reno at the ASC Cocker Spaniel National Specialty on July 14, 2013 continuing a tradition that began in 2009 when the ASC Specialty was hosted by Zone 4! The annual Parade of Rescues remains a crowd favorite. During the ceremony, the "How I Came To Be Homeless" stories of ten rescue cockers were shared and the re-homing efforts of rescue groups and individuals acknowledged. This year, several of the rescue cockers participated in obedience, rally and field events during the national specialty and even showed off new title ribbons! Personalized rosettes and gift bags were presented to Stella and Jonathan Rowlett with Louie, Heidi and Cherry, Patti and George Kohn with Murphy, Gail Workman with Bailey, Celeste Dwyer with Izzy,Chris Gomez with Cricket, Teri Steed with Kami, Susan Debock with Betty and Renee Sobie with Boston.
