Dear Officers, Board, and Chairs of the American Spaniel Club,

I am writing to ask for your help with Dr. Hess and my research project at the University of Pennsylvania veterinary school. We need many thousands of dog owners to complete our short 5 minute online survey (details included in the link) at:

https://www.vet.upenn.edu/veterinary-hospitals/ryan-veterinary-hospital/services/internal-medicine/diabetes-program

 

Any and ALL dog owners can complete the survey, regardless of health status and whether the dog has diabetes.

We were wondering if you would be able to extend this survey to your members (via email to group lists) and/or post the link onto your website. Posting and sharing our link on social media is strongly encouraged to reach the general dog owner population (and Cocker Spaniels across America!). We have been fortunate enough to receive support from the AKC and other breed clubs, whom are promoting the survey to their members and on their websites.

Every dog is valuable to this study and your assistance would be immensely appreciated by us (and dogs alike!). Please let me know if you can help. Thank you very much!

- Dr. Stephen Cai and Dr. Rebecka Hess

***** FLUSHING SPANIEL SHOW 2018 U P D A T E *****

Due to unforeseen delays with the building improvement construction, the Knoxville Exhibition Center will not be ready in time for our January show. Therefore, we will move the show to the Jacob Building at Chilhowee Park (2201 E. Magnolia Avenue, Knoxville).

The venue is a short 5 ½ miles (approximately 10 min.) drive from the Holiday Inn. The Knoxville Convention Center team has committed to making this unexpected transition as seamless as possible. We are working with Visit Knoxville (Convention & Visitors Bureau) to provide shuttle service for our members and guests to/from the Holiday Inn and the show venue.

More information will be available shortly as the Show Committee works on the logistics of the Show.  For now, we recommend that everyone who has reservations at the Holiday Inn, KEEP them. The few motels located by the facility are not recommended by the KCC or Chilhowee Park management. However, if you would like to cancel your reservation, please DO NOT call the Holiday Inn.  Please contact Jane Williams.  We have a waiting list for rooms and we need to facilitate the room change or the room will go back to general hotel inventory.
