The year 1916 apparently will see some of the most successful dog shows in the history of the Canine industry if the Westminster exhibition at New York to any Criterion. That display usually sets the Pace for the East and Philadelphia followed with a show in which 744 dogs competed with 1192 entries. A striking feature of the show of the Kennel Club of Philadelphia was the great number of Russian Wolf hounds listed, 47, which is seven more than at the New York show.

It is a note worthy fact that a great proportion of the Eastern prizes this year have been captured by Western dogs.
