Here’s a sample of this great newsletter – Spring 1981

Best of Pulikeynotes – collection of great articles from over the years

The Puli Club of Southern California produced a fantastic newsletter, and in 1971, they pulled together some of the best articles and produced a book called “The Best of Pulikeynotes.”  Most any English reader who cares about the Puli will find some wonderful reading, and thanks to Dagmar Fertl, who scanned this book to help preserve it for us all, everyone can now read it and enjoy.

Note:  It is a big book, so it may take a while to download, but it will be well worth the effort.


It is hard to know just when Pulikeynotes began. It had been in the planning
stages for several months before the first issue came out in march of 1963. But
the idea itself came many years before that, when there was such a lack of communication among members and when research on the Puli yielded such meager and even
conflicting information.

A club publication is like a custom-made suit– it must fit the person it’s
made for –be it breeder, exhibitor, obedience trainer or pet owner. LES BENIS
was the first columnist, with a series of articles on breed. Then ANNE KENNEDY
was persuaded to do the show news with commentary and SANDY OHRENBERGER with the
expert help of “TASHA” did the obedience pages. Your editor filled in with material
for the pet owner whose interest was not primarily in Puli breeding or showing.

It was a competent, dedicated staff– and each member of it has a special place
in the annals of the Puli Club.

It is always rewarding to create something that will satisfy a need.

It is even more rewarding to see it continue to grow, to become the fine publication it is today, reaching out in fellowship to Puli lovers all over the world.
