Worth the Wait

This is the longest I have ever had to wait for show pictures. Almost a month later they arrived, but I think it was worth it. My lovely Treasure with her two placements at the Samoyed Club of America specialty. Love the mountain set up, because it will always remind me of our trip to the Smokey Mountains!

Boston Does us Proud

I was surprised to learn this weekend that Boston was 2nd top rally Samoyed for the Samoyed Club of America in 2009. She was one of only two Samoyeds to earn the RAE title that year, which is a difficult task. It requires a team to qualify in two different rally classes (Advanced and Excellent courses) at the same trial, ten times. This takes not only a good working team but also a dog that can handle the stress of competing twice in one day, sometimes with only a short break between classes. Boston never NQ'd in any of her trials and she place in most of them! Thank you Boston for being such a fun partner in the ring and in life.

Treasure Does It Again

Missy Treasure picked up another point at the West Michigan Harvest Cluster. Good girl Treasure! She went on to Best of Winners that day. Now we need to hunt for majors.

Atlanta is Fun!

Our Polar puppy stepped in to the ring for the first time in Atlanta Georgia two weeks ago and won Best of Winners both days for his first two points. His mother Treasure was also winners one day for a point. It was so much fun to get the pictures back today and to see how nice they looked. Polar is the former Red Boy from the Answer x Treasure litter. His proud dad is CH T-Snow Stars All the Above.

SCA National

What a nice national specialty the Samoyed Club of America put on. We traveled to Altanta Georgia first for a conference and a dog show, then drove up to Sylva North Carolina for a visit with relatives we hadn't seen in a while. Then through the mountains to Pigeon Forge Tennessee. The hotel was a bust, but the show itself was awesome. Treasure brought home the bacon with placements in obedience and rally, getting her first legs in novice obedience and excellent rally. The two puppies we took had a blast and turned some heads but didn't make the ribbons. Too big and too clumsy. :) BUT Polar puppy did take two points down in Atlanta so we were very pleased. Now back to work, and reality! Pictures to follow.
