A Filou Cover:
Lillias M Carver, the Mrs A A of the Carver Northwestern Farms, Coalwood, Montana, threatens to shoot any one who does not agree with her that the Belgian police dog is the best breed on earth. We surely agree with her, at least within gunshot, and to help her and her kennels give this breed some publicity, Dog World will run on the front cover of the September (1927) issue a picture of their Filou, the stud ace of the Northwestern Farm Kennels.
Mrs Carver writes - "We have made two nice sales the past few days from Dog World. You are to be complimented on the splendid book you publish, the Dog World. I enjoy reading it and especially the pithy little bits you put here and there. I appreciate your efforts to help popularize our Belgian police dogs." Aug 1927 Dog World p31
Belgian Police Dog
Puppies by Carver's Farms' stud, Filou des Mascottes, owned by Mr McLennan, Calgary, Canada, took four firsts and other winnings at recent Canadian shows.
The Carver Kennels write - "On account of the tremendous demand for Belgian police dogs thru our ad in Dog World, we are increasing our breeding activities. We will have some nice puppies for spring delivery. In a short time the Belgian police dog will be the outstanding dog of America."
The best Belgian at the Westminster show was winners male, Troy Gibson's Dixmude. David A Wilson's Kho Diana de Soir, bred by Edward Phelan, was best bitch. Calvin Augustin's champion Jet was best at Lancaster.
