With the start of June we welcomed a new member to the family. NorthWapiti's Molotov, or Molly for short, finally made it down from Canada! We had been chatting with Karen for over a month about bringing her in, but with the Fort McMurray fire just north of the NorthWapiti homestead complicated travel plans for her. But oh worth the wait she was! She came in and settled right in with the rest of the pack like she's always been here. It truly is a blessing that Siberians are so easily welcoming to new members of the pack! It will be agony waiting for temperatures to fall enough to see her in harness!! I have such optimism for out team next season I can hardly wait!
Our trip to Blackfoot was good...though maybe not as fruitful as we had hoped when we went. The goal was to finish Keegan's GCH. He was awarded Select Dog on the first day in a lovely grouping of competitive dogs. Edging him 3 points closer to finishing his GCH. The rest of the weekend was less eventful, though he showed very well! At the end of the weekend he hitched a ride west to meet up with good friends and handling team Annie Oster and Soni Jager for the Canby Specialty and Clackamas Kennel Club All Breed Cluster.
The girls showed well, though no placements. At this point showing for the puppy girls is more about fun than it is about points! Maddie is catching on quickly to this whole show dog game and Gypsy got a chance to play with our friend Elise who helped keep our crazy schedule on track. As well as helping us get everyone shown. It was a great experience for all involved!
News from the LCSHC Specialty was beyond our wildest expectations, we are so pleased to be able to announce BISS GCH/INT CH Silver Falls Summer Lookout At Keahi "Keegan" handled by Annie Oster. We would like to send our sincere gratitude to Judge Dr Wanda V Spediacci for selecting our boy, to breeder Michael S Patton of Silver Falls Siberians for entrusting this magnificent boy to us, to Annie Oster who handled Keegan beautifully in my absence, and to Martin Glover for stepping up to hold the Club Trophy Placard for the photo! We are still reeling!
Growing up in Montana my love of the Siberian Husky started at a young age. It has been quite a journey so far. There has been much to learn and still a lot more yet to learn! I truly believe that we are never too old, too experienced, or too full of ourselves to learn something new. I also believe that knowledge is useless unless we are willing to share it with others.
