Boca Raton’s Own Canine – London the Standard Poodle – Another Source of City Pride

Written on February 6, 2013 at 5:23 pm

As London the Standard Poodle descends upon New York City for the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, he serves as a reminder of those various points of pride a city can possess.

Whether it’s the Presidential Debate being held at Lynn University, or the success of Florida Atlantic University Owls alum Alfred Morris becoming a rookie NFL sensation with the Washington Redskins, of even the city being known as the hometown of IBM’s personal computer division – and the birthplace of the PC itself, a community becomes known for the footprint it leaves on the greater psyche.

This weekend will be yet another example of a local pride and a canine rallying point. Boca Raton residents Michele Molnar and Jamie Danburg – he the founder and president of Danburg Properties of Boca Raton – take great pride in London’s accomplishments and the enthusiastic reception he receives in the show ring and public events.

It’s a pride we all can share – whether for London, Lynn, Alfred Morris or even the PC.
