Well, another Blue & Gray Cluster come and gone. The Lebanon Fairgrounds, in my opinion, is a much better venue than the PA Farm Show Arena, for a multitude of reasons. Not least of which is the reduced cost and better access. My thanks to the Harrisburg KC for putting on a good show in these trying times. That said, on to the fun part.
Raven, Patton and I had a great time at the shows this year. We had the outstanding pleasure to meet some new to us faces we had not met before. Morgan and her Dad, Benny Goodman; Stephanie Linderman; Ron Applegate among others.Was great to finally meet you all in person. Was also wonderful to see some friends again too; Pam Fisco, Ruth and Paul Levesque, Bev Pfeiffer, Debbie Carter, Barb Pisch, Amanda Kanzelburger, Annie Choi, and Marylou and Dennis and Carol Collins.
Wednesday and Thursday were the big days for us. RAVEN took Select Bitch on Wednesday under judge Carolyn Herbel to pick up her third 5-point GCH major with just a few more points to go. PATTON took the Bred-By Class after a two year hiatus from showing. On Thursday RAVEN took Best of Opposite Sex to finish her GCH, with PATTON again taking the Bred-By Class and Winners Dog for his second 5-point CH Major, both under judge Toddie Clark. PATTON only needs now to point out for CH. Friday was another good day for PATTON. He again took the Bred-By Class, but he was edged out in the winners ring. The rest of the cluster shows wwere pretty much ring practice time for us with PATTON taking a 4th place and 3rd Place in Bred-BY the last two days.
Alicia came up to the fairgrounds on Friday and Saturday to attend the Weight Pulls with our OMAR, Ali-Mic's First U.S. Army. OMAR has yet to be shown in the ring but this big goofball was a hit with the crowds. As soon as PATTON is finished OMAR will make his ring debut. All in all a good 5 days of showing and a pleasant time catching up with everybody. Thanks again for a great time.
Alicia, Omar and Patton recently attended teh FastCAT Trials in White Post, VA. Both Omar and Patton had some exceptionally good runs which resulted in Omar taking the #2 Fasteest Alakskan Malamute in the U.S., and Patton taking the #5 spot. Not bad for their first time out doing FastCAT.
|OMAR - Ali-Mic's First U.S. Army
Currently the #2 fastest FastCAT Alaskan Malamute in the U.S.
|PATTON - Ali-Mic's U.S. Third Army
Currently the #5 fastest FastCAT Alaskan Malamute in the U.S.
"PATTON" - Ali-Mic's U.S. Third Army, has a great day at the AMCA/AMAEP Specialty in the Mason & Dixon Kennel Club show in Harrisburg, PA. Under AKC judge Paula Hartinger, Patton wins the Bred-By Exhibitor Class, Winners Dog, and Best of Winners for his first Major (5 pts). Bred out of INDIANA and RAVEN, good things will happen with this home-bred boy in the near future.

Ludwigs Corner, PA - June 17-18, 2017
RAVEN - Ch Staghorn & Ali-Mic's Marion Ravenwood, CGC - has another great weekend out as a new special. The Ludwicks Corner, PA "Bryn Mawr Kennel Club" shows are very close to our home, so we always venture out to this one. Competition was rather light this year in all of the breeds due to the outbreak of canine influenza. But, the show must go on. Raven took Best of Opposite Sex both days under judges Helene Nietsch on Saturday, and Marjorie Martorella on Sunday. Though it threatened to rain most of the weekend, in the end the skies seemed to clear just before ring time. Just a few short points and one Major till Raven completes her Grand Championship.
Current Grand Championship standings: 16pts w/ 2 Majors
Freehold, NJ - May 26-29, 2017
RAVEN - Ch Staghorn & Ali-Mic's Marion Ravenwood, CGC - has a stupendous weekend out as a new special. The Freehold, NJ "Jersey Shore Cluster" of shows has always been a wonderful venue for us, but can be excruciatingly hot on any given year. This year we were presented with a rather wet start for the four days. Friday through Memorial Day Monday proved to be wonderfully productive event despite the rain. Raven started the cluster off with a Best of Opposite Sex on Friday under judge Jacqueline M. Rayner. Raven was in rare form on Saturday and took Best of Breed and Best of Breed and Best of Breed-Owner Handler for her first 5-point Grand Championship Major under judge William G. Daugherty. Later in the day, though she made the final cut of six dogs in the Working Group ring, she was not selected for any of the top four slots. In the Owner Handler series Working Group ring, she was given a OH-Group 4 award. Sunday was another day with a great lineup of dogs, and Raven once again received a Best of Opposite sexunderjudge Javinder Singh Pawar. On Monday she once again took Best of Breed under judge Dr. Albert P. Bianchi to complete a great weekend.
Current Grand Championship standings: 12pts w/ 2 Majors
