BEAVER CREEK - They scampered and barked, nuzzled and played, totally unaware that they were making canine history. But the 45 or so Icelandic sheepdogs gathered Saturday on Elisabet Stacy-Hurley's Beaver Creek property represented the largest gathering of the breed in U.S. history, organizers said. The gathering was part of a series of events scheduled throughout the country to mark the Icelandic Sheepdog Association of America's 10-year anniversary. The United States has only 600 to 700 Icelandic sheepdogs, said ISAA President Knox Rhine, who traveled from his home in Newton, Kan., for the event.

There's a brand new name on the junior golf circuit this summer and it might be a name that becomes more familiar. In her second Tri-State Junior tournament, 17-year-old Haeun Lee took home first place in the 16-18 age division Monday at Beaver Creek Country Club, shooting a 4-over-par 76. Her family recently moved to Hagerstown from Korea, and she will be a sophomore in the fall at Smithsburg High School. "This is the first time I've won anything (outright)," said Lee, who started playing golf four years ago and lists fellow Korean and LPGA star Se Ri Pak as her favorite golfer.

Washington County dairy farmer Art Rhoderick has album upon album of photos of his cows - and for good reason. The success of Rhoderick's Art Acres dairy herd and its impact on dairy herds throughout the world are significant. And they, along with his service to the dairy industry, are the main reasons Rhoderick was inducted recently into the Maryland Dairy Shrine. "Arthur Rhoderick's breeding philosophy has made a tremendous impact in Holstein dairy breed genetics throughout the world," said local veterinarian Dr. Matt Iager, who is treasurer and board member of the Maryland Dairy Shrine.

WASHINGTON COUNTY - There were no boars for Brittany Cipriotti's Harlequin Great Dane to hunt at the breed match held Saturday at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center. Not that it mattered anyway - the breed's historic training in Europe long has been replaced with television watching, at least at Cipriotti's home in Manassas, Va. "They're awesome family dogs. They're low-energy couch potatoes," said Cipriotti, who brought Hobie, a spotted 11-month-old, 150-pound dog for the match, which was held to ready inexperienced dogs for an actual show.

On the day before Thanksgiving, they were a whining pile of soft black squirming fur. By last week, with eyes open and sturdy legs under them, playful puppies were emerging with individual characteristics. In four more weeks, six of them will be in training to become drug-detection dogs for Maryland's state prisons. Of the other six puppies, some have been promised to other recipients and the rest will be donated to other law enforcement agencies. For now, the 12 puppies are enjoying time with mom Cayenne, who suspended her own drug-detection training to start the department's drug-detection breeding program.
