News of the Day: November 7, 2016: Maybe this should say news of the year? I really should be better at my updates, this has been a crazy busy year, dog wise and people wise.
February was the Denver Shows, and we did well, Carhart winning the Breed 2 of the 3 days he was entered and a Group 1 Owner Handler to top it off. Miles showed very nicely and was RWD 2 days. Blueberry showed like the 9 month old pro she was, earning 2 majors and a Reserve major.
March: Katie Jo gave birth to our newest Grand-daughter, Robin Grace.
April: Joe and I showed at Terry All and Miles and sister Neve" were WD and WB for Neve's first Points. Carhart and his "lil" cousin "Dancer" flew to the UK with our friend Kat and her daughter Vesper. Kat and Vesper did have a 4 + foot snow visit with us before departing.
May: I drove to the Utah Specialties and All-Breed shows where Neve and her "Big Brother", Hemi, from Montana won Majors.

July: found our daughter Courtney, husband Justin and Grand-kids Sophia (4 1/2) and Rowan ( 1/2) as additions to our home while theirs was being built.

The 2016 Alaskan Malamute National Specialty was held in Colorado Springs. Miles won his Maturity Class, Radar was 3rd inn the class. Blueberry won her Maturity class albeit really out of coat. Radar got 2 legs in Rally with a 4th Place at the National, and 2 weight-pull legs towards his title. Nuka, one of our puppies out of Chatter and Bismarck was Grand Futurity winner making out Nationals very nice. We did have a wonderful time catching up with new and old friends from around the country and world, this being the best part of Nationals.
November: Our kids and grand-kids will be moving into their new home in Aurora, Colorado. Joe and I will be empty nesters again, Joe said something about a remodeling project, or maybe we will just have more time for the Malamute Kids.........
