What a whirlwind trip to the National Specialty in San Diego!
Finally home, photos all uploaded, and mostly recovered from the trip....so let's recap!
The drive to San Diego is really a blur, as is the first day there. We were slightly disappointed to have missed the performance dogs of the Agility, Obedience, and Rally trials but when things finally settled we finally explored the resort complex. And it was HUGE! Found this cutie pie in the main show area- quite the host for the event.
Our first day of showing was a blast! Though he might not have been so thrilled about the bath the day before and the grooming routine one the morning of...Keegan could not have made us any more proud! Winning his Sweepstakes class (9-12 puppy dog) and working so hard for his momma!
It was a long day of showing for puppies and overall we can't have asked for any more than how he did! The support from our friends, new and old, was just amazing and have become part of the awesome memories that came back with this trip!
Soni Jager handled Keegan for the regular class showing the next day. Though he wasn't the judge's particular style I can't say he didn't look and work fabulously for Soni! It is always good to be able to see from the outside of the ring :) Could this be a preview of the future for this awesome team? We shall see! It certainly seemed like a perfect match watching them work together!
Keegan's final trip into the ring was with his sister Miley and momma Ruby for the Brood Bitch Class. It was a great showing for the trio! Ruby was awarded 3rd place in Brood Bitch and we couldn't have been more proud to be a part of the experience!
Overall the trip was amazing. Great memories. New friends, old friends, and some of the most beautiful Siberians the nation has to offer! Thanks for all the memories California! Already planning our trip to next year's National Specialty in Kansas! We'll see you there!
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.
