COPAKE — When Cutting Edge T Delilah blew out the candles on her seventh birthday cake on Dec. 2, she did so as a two-time Supreme Champion.   

Delilah is owned by Ken Main of Elite Dairy in Copake, N.Y., and Dr. Kenny Joe Manion of Kentucky. 

She is one of only four Brown Swiss cows to have been named Supreme Champion at the World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wis., in the past 50 years. Following her win in the same category in 2018, Delilah is the first Brown Swiss to win Supreme Champion two years in a row since 1988-1989. 

Main bought Delilah...

A tail-wagging good time at Little Guild dog party

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

GOSHEN — There were no dogs at this show; everyone was a winner before they even got there. Well, actually, everyone was a dog —but only in the literal sense of the word.
When the Little Guild animal shelter decided to put on a dog show fundraiser, the idea was to celebrate canines who are not the most perfect representatives of their breeds, but who are the best representatives of the human-canine bond.

Addiction recovery, with the help of God

patricks@lakevillejournal.com

ASHLEY FALLS — One of the major selling points of the 12-Step recovery programs, most notably Alcoholics Anonymous, is the phrase “God as we understood Him.”
The wording occurs twice in AA’s 12 Steps — in Step Three (“Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood him”) and Step 11 (“Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out”). (The emphasis is included in the AA text.)

patricks@lakevillejournal.com

GREAT BARRINGTON — Introducing a panel of experts representing organizations that work on affordable housing, moderator David Rich said that within 35 miles of Great Barrington there are between 60 and 70 towns.
“The fabric of many of those communities is unraveling, and much of that is centered on housing,” said Rich.

Love, shots and understanding for pit bulls

TORRINGTON — About 50 pit bulls came to Coe Park in Torrington Sept. 1. It was a beautiful day, and just like any breed, most of the canines were excited to greet other dogs and their people.
It was Cornwall’s Little Guild of St. Francis animal shelter’s first “Pittie Party.” Beyond the catchy name, this is a serious effort to control the pit bull population — not because some consider it a nuisance breed, but because it is so overbred and misunderstood. Every day, animal control and area shelters are called upon to take unwanted or abandoned dogs.

Only one way to handle the dog days of summer

cynthiah@lakevillejournal.com

There are certain things that scream “summer!” For parents, it might be small children at the beach, or eating ice cream. For athletes, it might be cyclists on the road, swimmers traversing the area’s lakes, or tennis players dashing around outdoors in pursuit of the little yellow ball.
But for the many dog lovers who live in this area, there is perhaps nothing that screams “dog days” so much as, well, a dog — especially if that dog has just emerged happily from a pond, a pool or a dousing with a hose.

Getting the details just right

Goshen Fair’s 100th anniversary
karenb@lakevillejournal.com

GOSHEN — Going to the Goshen Fair can mean anything from hauling in livestock and camping out for days in the barn, to a few hours of wholesome fun with the youngsters. Some are more excited to see the piglets, sheep shearing and tractor pulling while others go for the carnival games and cotton candy.
The crowds that came to the 100th Anniversary Goshen Fair over Labor Day weekend enjoyed fabulous weather and seemed to want to see everything. Often overheard were, “We haven’t been to the dairy/beef/rabbit barn yet,” or “When is the tractor pull?”
