This time I want to tell you how our actions in the past year will affect the future of the FCI. I am not saying it is not important to summarise our achievements and to explain why we proceeded in a certain way, but I want to talk about our future as an international organisation, but most important about the future of our dogs worldwide.

Three aspects have been transcendental during the past year; cooperation and collaboration, innovation and preparation for the future. These three aspects will lead our organisation for the next year.

In memoriam

© Yigal Pardo
Dr Rita Trainin
The IKC was very saddened to announce the passing of Dr Rita Trainin, a veterinarian, an all-rounder FCI judge and a successful breeder of black Schnauzers and Greyhounds under the kennel name Barzakan. Dr Trainin, together with her husband Prof. Ze'ev Trainin, were among those who established the modern day IKC and one of the founders of the Israeli clubs for Schnauzer, German shepherd and Sighthound. She held many positions at the Israel Kennel Club. But more than anything else Rita, as everyone called her, was the mentor of generations of Israeli breeders and judges. No doubt the Israeli dog world will not be the same without her
