Klootch, a puppy bitch

Klootch puppy bitches (2)

Posted as an example of the antiquated slur klootch (also spelled “klutch” or “klooch”).
–from the Portland Morning Oregonian, April 23, 1904, page 5, column 5.  Here it’s the name of a female puppy in a dog show.

As I confirm in a reply to Dale McCreery’s comment on my “Iron Klooch” article, this word was used much more in BC, it seems, than in the States, so the above is a rare find.
