The Pomeranian world has
suffered a great loss this week. Margaret
McKee was taken from us suddenly on Monday night.
She was a founding
member of the Pomeranian Club of Central Virginia 15 years ago and has been
active ever since holding numerous offices, In addition, she was a founding
member of both the Greater Baltimore Pomeranian Club, the Mid Atlantic Field
Spaniel Club and was a member of the Richmond (Va) Dog Obedience Club (RDOC)
for an amazing 45 years!!
Her prowess in the Pom
world was so well known, she warranted a paragraph in the book Pomeranian: A
Comprehensive Guide to Owning and Caring for Your Dog (Comprehensive Owner’s
Guide), Juliette Cunliffe, 2011.
Margaret spent the last 50 years breeding, showing, and competing. She leaves the Pom world better than when she found it. She even found time to raise a future AKC Judge (Rachal McKee Sager).
Her absence will be felt
at every show when you look ringside and she’s not in her usual spot near the
entrance and every meeting/event when you don’t see the “PomMom” license plate
parked right up front. Margaret once told me that she’s had the ‘PomMom” VA
Plate since the mid-70’s! I don’t know anyone that’s had the same plates for
