President's Bark
It is that time of year where daylight gets shorter and dog activities slow down. We will
even lose an additional hour of daylight this coming weekend with Daylight Savings Time (fall
back one hour). With the time and weather change, I want to be sure everyone stays safe and
healthy, including your dogs. Get lots of sleep, keep your dogs out of the weather and well fed,
and take time to enjoy all of your friends (including the 2 legged variety!).
I would like to take this opportunity to offer my personal, and the club's condolences to
several of our members who recently lost members of their families. Both Michele Murray and
Lori Stevens recently lost their fathers. Our thoughts and prayers go out to both their families and
we have Michele and Bill, and Lori and Aaron in our hearts. Our prayers also go out to Sheri
Everett who lost Ch. Sharobi's Off Shore Racer through a tragic accident. None of us is ever
ready to handle the loss of those dear to us. Remember that your friends are available to help fill
some of the void these losses create.
I would also like to take this time to appreciate some of the good things that happen in this
Richard Welty's pug just finished his Championship at the Boise dog shows.
Congratulations to Richard. I think he is still walking 3 feet off the ground!! Bonnie had some
success as well as her 9-12 puppy girl went winners bitch and best of breed on the Friday; at the
puppy's first show! What a great win.
We are collecting prizes for our next instant raffie in September 2015. We will be raffling
off only 1 scooter, as we are adding a 32" HDTV and a Microsoft Surface 2 tablet to the prize mix.
Best Buy gave the club a great discount on the Surface 2. We also ordered more pens, RKC
bags, and large and small Frisbees to support the raffie and the upcoming family Expo. Bonnie
will continue to collect other prizes and fillers over the year if you have them available. The club
trailer is really paying dividends in this area providing needed storage. Speaking of club trailers,
the new trailer worked out excellently at the show. Everything was easy to get to and easily fit
into this new trailer.
I would like to end my report by congratulating (pre-maturely- the official date is November
6 the new board members for the club. While the President (Chuck Ames), Treasurer (Michele
Murray), and Corresponding Secretary(Bonnie Ames) remain the same, the Vice-President Kevin Davis, Recording Secretary - Liz Suma, and Board members - Alyssa Paxton and Laurie
Weed are new. Putting new people on the board is one way the club can ensure long term
success. Welcome to all!.
Our next meeting will be on November 6th at the Richland Community House starting at
7:30. I hope to see you all there.
Your President
Chuck Ames
