Silky Is a Merry Fellow By Eleanor Avery Price JF YOU ARE looking for a toy dog that can dream up more fun than a barrel of monkeys, consider the Silky terrier. According to Mae Holt, 1465 Gardenia Ave., there seems to be no end to the rounds of merry-making of a Silky. Her puppies have done a good job of supplying nylons for the American I.e- gion Auxiliary, making hay out of cleaning tissues, getting their w h i s k e r s stuck with caramel candy and similar antics. But this breed is very intelligent and gradually can be trained in good behavior. The S i l k y , as with any other breed, learns best during its formative period and learns much as a little child does -- through association of ideas. Once an admonition is given it must be obeyed. However, the breed should retain its terrier characteristics.

In a recent newsletter from the Silky Terrier Club of America, there appears a paragraph on training, the contents of which are food for thought for all dog owners training or contemplating training their dogs in obedience. It was written by Eleanor Depotd who states: "It has long been a peeve of ours that dog owners think they must use drastic measures to get obedience. We are of the opinion that a shrill voice giving a command excites the dog, causing confusion. Our neighbors are puzzled by the o b e d i e n c e we get from a single 'No.' This, when the dogs cannot see us but can hear us. No wonder so many owners consider their dogs Air Race (Continued from Page 8) picks up a dish lo demonstrate. "In Italy a w o m a n must be handled as if she will break." In America, she is treated like "rubber w h i c h will snap back again. . . . Husband and wife are more friends here." In the sixth Derby, Fran was first to try soloing. The mechanics of clocking arrivals at way stops makes a copilot desirable. At each stop, the pilot taxis up to a time clock to have her elapsed time recorded. A co-pilot can take a flying leap out of the cockpit and shove the log book into the timing mechanism. To avoid losing a few precious minutes, Fran was seen acting as her own co-pilot, jumping from her taxiing plane, running a quarter mile to the mechanical timekeeper, and then racing to her plane to "land." WOMEN FLIERS hold flying in high regard, with a sameness of spirit and a compound of exuberance and common sense. "There's time for everything," Fran Bera says, and that's reflected in her log book which contains entries indicating such stints as leading a low-on-fuel and lost racing pal, a great-grandmother, to safety in a storm; giving free plane rides to blind children and training as an astronaut. "I do what I like to do-and I like to fly, so I fly," says Grazia. Women pilots are winning i n c r e a s i n g recognition (a prime goal of the TAR), and few remain as unbelieving as the pigtailed female reported in a news item among Fran's clippings who watched a plane land in her parents' field, and race to the famhouse to gasp, her eyes as big and shiny as flying saucers, "There's no pilot--just a woman!" 'dumb,' not realizing they are at fault. Few speak quietly to their pets. Anyone working with dogs can tell by their behavior how the o w n e r s (rain them." SILKY TERRIERS started as the 113th breed recognized by the AKC in 1959 and now rank 63rd on the popularity poll. There's no telling how far up the little imps will scamper in the future. Their good qualities are many. Beyond being merry and intelligent, they are sturdy, their food bill is small, and grooming requirements consist only of attention to the nails and daily brushing. The Silky p e o p l e have worked out a brushing program s u i t a b l e for many breeds. They recommend a natural bristle brush, for it is easier on the coat than a nylon brush, and for damp brushing it does a better job of h o l d i n g water. Damp brushing helps prevent a coat from matting. Wet the brush well with soft or distilled water and brush one side of the dog till dry, then dampen brush again and do the other side. (With a large dog, the brush may need s e v e r a l dampenings.) If soft or distilled water is used, the dog can be damp brushed every other day. If matting occurs, bathe the pet with Castile shampoo, then brush dry, working to the skin. Remaining mats may be oiled with Lanolin or baby oil, left on a few hours or overnight, then mats worked apart. Only extreme matting should be cut out. O R A N G E EMPIRE Dog Club has scheduled an un- benched show and obedience trial July 16 at John Calvin Park, Ontario. Silky terriers are a happy- go-lucky lot, as aro these pups owned by Mrs. Marshall (Mae) Holt of 1465 Gardenia Ave. Silkies' food bill is small, dogs are sturdy and grooming is no great chore. I*!
