The following correspondence was received from judges and club representatives that presided at our January 2012 show.
Samamish Kennel Club Members!
Ken and I wish to thank y'all so much for inviting us to judge your show................It was a great experience for us---people were very friendly, exhibitors were polite, and dogs (for the most part) were a bunch of good representatives of their breed! Your show committee is excellent, right down to the judges gift bags. Of course, my favorite was the "chocolate" box! (No surprise there right?) The rain poncho went right into my judges bag---we are as bad as you are with surprise showers. So this was very welcome!
My puppy was pleased with her chew bones...........she thanks you to.
Thank you for this opportunity,
Jackie and Ken Rayner

Dear Club Members;
It was such a pleasure to be with you all this past week. You all are very lucky to have such a nice show site. You’d better hang on to it. I was so pleased with the dogs - they were top notch – but that’s the Northwest for you! I could have gone several different ways in my judging and still been right.
My hotel room was super and having the restaurant good AND convenient was a luxury. Thanks for the delicious lunches which surely did taste good during a much needed break. The dinner Friday night was a great idea and quite enjoyable and gave me a chance to see everybody before the busy days ahead. I love my bag with the goodies and think you all are very clever in putting it together. It was a fun day and believe it or not, everybody ended up the day with smiles!
My appreciation to all your club workers for making my stay so comfortable.
Thanks again for having me judge your show. I hope to see you all again soon at some shows

Thanks so much for inviting us to judge the Sammamish KC show. We enjoyed the dogs and the people very much. It was nice to meet so many of your members at the judges' dinner on Friday. Hope to be able to join all of you again sometime.

Jan, just a quick note to thank you for a very nice show last Saturday at the Puyallup Fairgrounds. Our supported entry was a great success and we all had a wonderful time. We look forward to working with the Sammamish Kennel Club again and we want you to know how much we appreciate the work that goes into staging such an endeavor as that show. In sincere appreciation from all the members in the Bernese Mountain Dog Club of Greater Seattle.
