 Cocktails at Doubles
the VIP judges, handlers, owners, breeders and officials of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show and The American Kennel Club
and to celebrate the publication of Karen’s new children’s book
Best In Show

Guests include: David Frei, the ‘Voice of Westminster;’ Dennis Sprung, president of AKC; David Merriam; Wendell Sammet; Tim Brazier; Chris Manelopoulos; Joseph Vergnetti; Matthew Stander; Tom Grabe; Toni Sosnoff; Jim Reynolds; Ceil Ruggles; Charlotte Patterson; Rick Beauchamp; Frank Sabella and other breeders, owners, handlers and judges from the Westminster Dog Show.
Ellen Charles raises and shows poodles and bishon frises.
She lives in Washington, DC.
Karen LeFrak, author of Best in Show, wrote the popular children’s books Jake the Philharmonic Dog and Jake the Ballet Dog. She breeds and shows champion poodles. Her Standard Poodle Ch. Ale Kai Mikimoto on Fifth has won 88 champion prizes. She is married to Richard LeFrak, president of the LeFrak Organization. They split their time between Manhattan and Southampton, where they live with their flock of poodles.
      Karen is donating her proceeds from the sales of Best in Show to the AKC Canine Health Foundation and Take The Lead. AKC Canine Health Foundation develops resources for basic and applied health programs to improve the quality of life for dogs and their owners.  Take the Lead provides direct services, support and care for people in the sport of purebred dogs who suffer life-threatening
 or terminal illness.
Best in Show follows Abby, a young girl, as she learns how to train Gem, her Standard Poodle puppy, for dog show competition. Her teacher is the wise and patient Wendell.  The book has illustrations by Andrew Day, who illustrated Now Hiring: White House Dog, about the Obama’s search for the right puppy.
