January 2007 Barker


It is so nice to have electricity again after being off for over a week. We are in the Avondale / Cottage Lake convergence zone that seems to get snow and rain when nobody else in the area does, more gray skies than you would wish
on your worst enemy, and winds that shred trees, power lines, roofs and anything else in its path. My poor old Akita thought the world might end that Thursday night; Dante and the cats settled beside me on the couch and wondered why we were sleeping in the living room. Not a good time…

If you missed the Christmas Party at Jan’s home, you missed a good time! Wayne, Jan’s husband, some how (magically?) removed all the bones from the turkey before cooking it. Serving the turkey was fast and easy. And however it was that he cooked it, it was absolutely delicious. The annual Christmas steal-a-present was also very enjoyable after we managed to remember the rules – all two of them. Who ever brought the gift wrapped Baileys: What a great idea that was! Thank you Wayne and Jan for once again hosting the club Christmas Party and welcoming all of us into your home.

Please do not forget the Judge’s Dinner on 12 January at the Best Western in Puyallup. This is always a very enjoyable evening, in a comfortable setting, with delicious food and stimulating conversation with our judges. Most of the judges have traveled a long distance to be with us and it is always a pleasure to greet them in a relaxed manner the evening before our show. Please RSVP to Muriel, if you haven’t already.

Rogers has posted the numbers for our show and they are at least as good as last year. Jan is happy (she said so herself). And if Jan is happy, the whole Show Committee is happy. We reached our limit for the Rally Trial (150 teams) and our Obedience Trial will be well attended, as usual. If anyone would like to volunteer to help with the show, and has not already done so, please contact Jan, Rusty or myself. There is always more than enough work on the day of the show and more hands helping makes things go much smoother.

Wishing you and yours a safe, happy New Year! Can’t wait to see what surprises AKC has in store for us in 2007.
