Helen James, a Highline Place resident, presides over the Willowbrook Place dog show.
A woman who was among the first ever appointed to a key American Kennel Club post helped preside over a local dog show on July 26. Helen James, 87, a resident of Littleton memory care community Highline Place, was among a group of seniors attending the event at Willowbrook Place, a memory care community also located in Littleton. Canines owned by Willowbrook Place staff strutted their stuff, with pre-schoolers from Primrose School of Bear Creek joining the seniors in the audience.
James was the second woman ever named as an American Kennel Club field representative. She was appointed in 1974 while living in Kansas, after serving as obedience judge for 14 years. She raised poodles and was also qualified to judge Dalmatians, but she loves dogs of all kinds.
Willowbrook Place and Highline Place are operated by Anthem Memory Care.
