I have a great story about a little SAM my specials
bitch won years ago. Ten years ago I specialed a litter sister to
my old girl that I just lost, and she won a SAM for BOB. I was quite
delighted with it as I'd never gotten anything like that before
(just a bunch of medallions) and I kept it in my tack box for good
She ended up in the top ten with a few group placements all won
by yours truly on the end of the lead, before she got very sick.
I lost her the following year and to this day, I have the SAM she
won sitting along side all my other Springer keepsakes, including
an embroidery of Gala her vet sewed for her. She was such a special
dog to many people. I hope others will like their SAMs much in the
same way I did!
Sammamish Kennel Club will conduct a CGC at Marymoor Park on Saturday,
21 August, from 9AM through noon in conjunction with the Specialty
Shows scheduled that day. Please contact me if you can help evaluate
the dogs and their handlers. We have done this for several years
and it has always been a lot of fun, especially when the lawyers
did not complain. If you are not an AKC approved CGC Evaluator,
your assistance is still needed (we can train you!).
