Share the Westminster Dog Show and wine with Tulsa club

If you love dogs, this is your Super Bowl week. The Westminster Dog Show gets underway and you can watch it with others who share your passion.

The Mid-Continent Kennel Club of Tulsa is hosting it’s annual “Westminster Wine Tasting Party” in conjunction with Mardi Gras Fat Tuesday, on Tuesday, February 12, 2013, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Club members will be cheering on their favorite breeds and dogs that are competing in this year’s Westminster Kennel Club AKC All-Breed Dog Show. “Westminster,” a New York City high-society event, is synonymous with the glamorous and exciting sport of dog showing.

The Westminster show dates back to 1877 and is considered one of the top dog events in the world. The final judging for “Best in Show” at Westminster will be televised live on the USA Television Network at 8:00 p.m., EST on Tuesday, February 12th.

Tulsa club members who are attending this watch party will also be choosing “Best in Show” wines during the evening celebration and broadcast.

The Mid-Continent Kennel Club of Tulsa (MCKC) is dedicated to responsible dog ownership. A philanthropic local organization dating back 75 years, the club focuses on the welfare of people and dogs through education, training seminars and legislation.

Each year the club hosts the “Tulsa Round-Up of Dog Shows,” which draws approximately 2,000 AKC registered dogs and their handlers from across the United States. This dog show is the primary fund-raiser for MCKC and is free to the public.

The monies raised are distributed to worthy local groups such as the SPCA, the Humane Society of Tulsa, the City of Tulsa Animal Shelter, Therapetics, and area canine search and rescue organizations. The club also supports the Oklahoma State School of Veterinary Medicine and the American Kennel Club‘s “Take The Lead” Foundation.

  • Two prison inmates take their confinement out on some fellow inmates. A South Carolina inmate says he and another convicted murderer strangled four fellow prisoners in a bid to get the death penalty.   Denver Simmons told The Associated Press in a series of telephone calls that he and Jacob Philip plotted the April 7 killings at Kirkland Correctional Institution for months. Both men were sentenced to life without parole for double murderers.   Simmons told the AP they chose inmates who were weak or trusted them, and lured them one by one into Simmons' cell. The victims were John King, William Scruggs, Jimmy Ham, and Jason Kelley.   Simmons said he now realizes he's unlikely to get the death penalty.
  • A woman is robbed at gunpoint while walking her dog at LaFortune Park around 11:30 p.m. Monday. Tulsa police tell us three men approached the victim, taking her cell phone before running away into the park near 51st and South Yale. Officers got into a foot chase with the suspects, following them to a nearby apartment complex. Tulsa Police Sergeant David Brice said, “However we were able to recover the victim’s cell phone where the officer last saw that suspect run into the apartment complex.” None of the suspects have been arrested.
  • A shooting victim dies in the hospital after being gunned down on a grocery store parking lot. Tulsa police tell us a 26- to 27-year male was shot around 10:30 Monday night at the Turley Food Express at 504 East 56 Street North.  “Officers were able to locate witnesses that stated a black male arrived in the parking lot, exited a vehicle (and) fired multiple shots at the victim while in the parking lot,” said Tulsa Police Sergeant August Terbrock.   We're told witnesses had no description of the vehicle or the suspect. Crime scene detectives have taken over the investigation. The victim’s name has not been released.
  • No charges will be filed in a police shooting last week. Investigators have found no criminal wrongdoing in the police killing of a mentally ill, knife-wielding black man by officers.   Tulsa police homicide Sgt. Dave Walker tells the Tulsa World about the findings Monday from the internal investigation of the June 9 shooting of Jason Barre. Tulsa County District Attorney's Office will review the findings next and decide if it concurs.   Barre already was known to police as having a mental illness. When he walked down a street wielding two butcher knives on June 9, two sheriff's deputies and a police officer gave him room until he approached a convenience store. After a stun gun failed to stop Barre, the deputies and officer shot him.
  • Two dogs mauled a woman over the weekend.   Gallatin County Sheriff Brian Gootkin said Monday that 65-year-old Melissa Barnes was doing yard work Saturday at a residence west of Bozeman when she was attacked, first by a pit bull, followed by another dog. The breed of the second dog hasn't been confirmed.   Barnes, who is an organ donor, was being kept on life support at a Billings hospital pending rabies tests on the dogs, which belonged to tenants on Barnes' property. The dogs were not current on their vaccinations. Their owners voluntarily euthanized them.   Gootkin says the case is still under investigation, and no charges have yet been filed.
