2011 Inductee – Wayne Ferguson

"Regarding Wayne, we always say to each other, ‘You’re the best.’ Now I can have the final word. ‘Wayne, YOU’RE the best!'”
Karen LeFrak
Breeder/exhibitor, author


"We have been fortunate to have known Wayne for many decades. His life has touched almost every part of the dog world. He started with a card table of dog supplies at a few shows that grew into Cherrybrook. He showed some great dogs, served many clubs at all levels, worked endlessly for the Canine Health Foundation, the Morris Animal Health Foundation, and was the driving force behind the resurrection of the Morris & Essex Kennel Club and The Kennel Club of Philadelphia. He has been a great friend, a wonderful mentor and a consummate gentleman. He has lived a life of service to the dog world. Annie would have been proud that you have become part of the Anne Rogers Clark Hall of Fame! Congratulations!” 
Debbie Burke & Ron Scott


"A reserved gentleman filled with passion for all that is good in our sport.” 
Michael Faulkner
AKC judge and breeder/exhibitor


"Over 40 years ago, Cherrybrook was successfully launched by a young man patiently selling dog products at shows out of the back of his station wagon. Forty years later, that same remarkable ‘young’ man is appropriately being recognized with this honor for his significant contributions and accomplishments in the world of purebred dogs. Through our close involvement with him, as Wayne ‘the entrepreneur,’ ‘the multiple dog club presidents,’ and the ‘M&E show chairman,’ we have built a friendship that spans many decades. His vision, dedication, generosity and enthusiasm in all aspects of our sport are always on the forefront and easily recognized by his many achievements through the years. Congratulations, Wayne, on an award most richly deserved!” 
Dave & Peggy Helming
Breeder/exhibitors, Pouch Cove Kennels


"There is no kinder a man nor gentler a voice than Wayne Ferguson. His dulcet tones and depth of expertise make every dog seem special.” 
John O’Hurley
Actor, co-host of The National Dog Show Presented by Purina


"We have so many contributions to thank you for, Wayne, but above all your efforts to bring style and grace back to dog shows is an achievement for which the sport of purebred dogs will be forever beholden.” 
Richard G. ("Rick”) Beauchamp
Author, columnist, AKC judge


"For those of us who believe that history is important and dog shows at their best are a display of what makes our sport so fascinating, Wayne Ferguson’s success in resurrecting the Morris & Essex Kennel Club has been an inspiration worthy of the highest praise.” 
Bo Bengtson
AKC judge, breeder/exhibitor, founding editor of Dogs in Review


"Wayne has this wonderful, trustworthy way about him that eliminates the word ‘no’ from the conversation. That’s why positive, exciting things are always happening around him and why he has been successful in whatever he does. We are lucky to have him doing those things in our dog show world, and I am lucky to have him as my friend.” 
David Frei
Commentator, Westminster Kennel Club
Co-host of The National Dog Show Presented by Purina


"Wayne has worn many hats in the dog world: breeder, exhibitor, founder of Cherrybrook, president of numerous kennel clubs, chairman of charitable organizations. Perhaps his efforts in the revival of the great Morris & Essex show will be his most memorable contribution.” 
Peter J. Green
AKC judge; past professional handler
