THE CAVALIER CHRONICLE
Pay attention......we are so lacking in labeling knowledge. The powers that be are very good at keeping us ill-informed. Another example is that 'natural flavoring' means MSG. Watch out for Birch Sugar....it will kill your dog.
Please plan on being with us at these upcoming events...
August 28 and 29 - Two specialty shows, Saturday night social
September 26 - Puppy Social at the Utych's
December - Holiday Luncheon - Date to be determined.
If you would be interested in hosting a potluck Holiday Luncheon please let us know.
Our next Specialty shows will be held at the same location on August 28th and 29th, 2021 in conjunction with the Cherokee Rose cluster shows at the Atlanta Expo Center South.
Our judges will be Conny Hansen (Althof US) and Marilyn Mayfield (Mayfield US). Our Sweeps judge for Puppy and Veterans will be Pat Mixon (Tudorose US).
Marilyn Mayfield will also be judging Junior Showmanship and Beginner Puppy competition on Sunday. Make plans to join us in February 2021!
Our host hotel will once again be the Drury Inn and the booking line for special rates can be found on our website: www.ckcscatlanta.org
On Saturday evening the club will have a social at the host hotel with beverages, food, ice, plates, utensils, etc. We ask members to bring a side to share! Come and just relax after the show and enjoy a bite to eat and socialize with friends we have not seen in a long time due to the pandemic. Be sure to bring your mask!
In lieu of a ringside silent auction, which would not be feasible with COVID 19 guidelines, we will have a Chinese auction where tickets may be purchased to place in bags next to 6 to 7 prewrapped baskets. We will draw the winning tickets on Saturday after the Specialty.

NATURAL REMEDY FOR BRUISED OR SORE MUSCLES
Let’s say your dog overdid it at the weekend agility trials or tangled with a neighbor’s dog. You broke up the fight quickly.
Upon inspection of your dog from head to tail, you notice he has bruising on his abdomen caused by the pressure of a tooth dragging across the body. However, there is no evidence of any puncture wounds, and your dog is not showing any signs of pain.
Natural treatment option: arnica. This homeopathic medicine is from a sunflower perennial that blooms in the early spring and is also known as Leopard’s Bane.
It is available in pellets, creams, and gel forms at health stores and also through Amazon.com.
Giving Arnica 30 c in pellet form (four to six pellets equal one dose) to your dog to help with pain and resolve inflammation quickly.
Always discuss any treatment with your vet.
RECIPE OF THE MONTH
Quick & Easy Peanut Butter Dog Treats
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter - crunchy can also be used
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup water
You can use other kinds of peanut butter such as chunky, but if you do you’ll probably need to add more water to the mixture in order to make it into a workable dough.
- Preheat your oven to 350 F.
- Mix together your flour, peanut butter & eggs in a large bowl until slightly combined.
- Add in a little bit of water (approximately one Tbsp at a time) until the mixture becomes wet enough to roll out as dough.
- Roll out your dough & cut out your favorite shapes with some cookie cutters.
- Place your treats onto your baking sheet & cook for about 15 minutes. For a little bit of crunch, I like to take mine out once the bottoms start to darken.
