His accomplishments in ""dogdom"" included his contributions as a prolific dog show judge and breeder and expert on dog law in America. Despite his involvement in the dog elite, however, Judy's appreciation of man's best friend extended beyond the purebred and he championed the causes of all dogs. He had a vision that dogs would serve humans in ways most had not imagined. He championed their use in military and police work and in their value as assistance and therapy dogs. In 1928, he launched the National Dog Week Movement, to honour man's best friend in a collective and thoughtful manner. Today, that movement continues, a testament to the legacy of this inspiring and gifted dog-enthusiast.
