Lee was born into a dog family. She began showing and breeding Afghan Hounds in 1961 and got into Salukis shortly thereafter with her husband, Jim, and their three children. �During the heyday of the Afghan in the 1960s and �70s,� says Mrs. Canalizo, "I finished six generations of typey, correct-moving Afghans that did a moderate amount of group and specialty-show winning�ample rewards for a hobby breeder of that era. I finished many champions in the days of thirty-eight dogs for a major"! Her Afghan bloodlines were behind many champions of future generations. Lee was first approved to judge Afghan Hounds in 1976 and now judges all Working, Hound, Herding, Toys & Sporting Groups and Poodles. She has written extensively on the Sighthounds and has taught at many seminars. She has held �just about every position in many clubs, both all-breed and specialty.� She is a member of the Ladies Kennel Association, the Morris & Essex Kennel Club, and the Sun Coast Afghan Hound Club.
