For her devotion and contribution to the Český Terrier, Katherine Eckstrom, long-time Slovo subscriber, received a quilt made for her by Klub chovatelů českých teriérů, the Český Terrier Breeders Club in the Czech Republic. Katherine has been an honorary member for over 26 years. This was the first time in 27 years that she missed the annual club gathering in the Czech Republic. The dogs pictured in the quilt belong to different club members. The dog in the center is Katherine’s champion dog, known affectionately as Chester, but officially named Chlap Lovu Zdar. He was bred by the originator of the breed Mr. František Horák and became the most winning Český Terrier in the world.
