BREED CLUB PUBLICATIONS
This section includes those materials produced and published under the auspices of Kerry Blue Terrier Breed Clubs both in the U.S. and in other countries. AKC materials developed in cooperation with the USKBTC are included. Common type publications such as handbooks are listed in reverse chronological order. The edition frequency of the Breed Books of the early 40s were constructed through the use of references in other books as I have not had the good fortune to see any of these documents. It is possible that there could be errors in dates, etc. Validation is welcome. Bob Nazak
