Dogs in Canada magazine going to the dogs after 122 years of publishing

Dogs in Canada, Canada's oldest continually published monthly magazine, has announced plans to close. Featuring articles and columns on breeding, canine nutrition and the "lighter side" of dog ownership, the Toronto-based magazine started out as a newsletter for the Canadian Kennel Club before ultimately hitting newsstands as a general-interest pet magazine. Despite being billed as Canada's top-selling pet magazine, publishers announced Sunday that Dogs in Canada has "no reasonable expectation of profit." The magazine's last issue will be issued in December. Founded only 22 years after Confederation, Dogs in Canada has run for 122 straight years; 16 years longer than Maclean's. In a Tuesday news release, the Canadian Kennel Club said the decision to fold Dogs in Canada was "solely financial" and that it will continue to run the magazine's content on its website.
