Kennel Club

A kennel club (known as a kennel council or canine council in some countries) is an organization for canine affairs that concerns itself with the breeding, showing and promotion of more than one breed of dog. All-encompassing kennel clubs are also referred to as 'all-breed clubs', although "all" means only those breeds that they have decided to recognize, and "breed" means purebred dogs, not including dog hybrids and crossbreeds or mixed-breed dogs. A club that handles only one breed is known as a breed club.

Famous quotes containing the words kennel and/or club:

    All night in the unmade park
    After the railings and shrubberies
    The birds the grass the trees the lake
    And the wild boys innocent as strawberries
    Had followed the hunchback
    To his kennel in the dark.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    We have ourselves to answer for.
