It is official, 2021 is behind us and a new year has begun. I sincerely hope all of you had a very Merry Christmas and were able to spend safe time with family and friends. It was a quiet Christmas for us, some special time with our daughter and her family. The three red dogs have enjoyed being with us almost full time, but not so happy about not getting to go outside and romp as much as they like. For some reason they just don’t get it that I really don’t enjoy spending extra time giving baths after they have played in the mud!
I’ve been working with our webmaster, trying to get our website calendar of events updated. It is a process, so please bear with me as we work through this. We still need someone to organize the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, fall specialty chairpersons, and volunteers. Please look through the Calendar of Events on our website (ISCPSF. com) and see if there is something you could help with. I know that as the chairperson for the Sunday of our Spring Specialty, I still need someone to help with Judges meals, and transportation. Peggy Davis is the chair for Saturday and may also need some help. Please contact us if you can help out. We have lot of people available to guide you, if needed.
Our next club events will be in February. Our Hunt test will once again be held at Quail Point, in Zamora. It is always so fun to watch our dogs in the field, doing what they have been bred to do. If you can help out, please let Cathy Michels know. We also have our Scent work trial, to be held in Lodi, at the Big Dream Center. I know they will need volunteers to help fold boxes, so if you can help, please let Pam Warner know.
The yearly conformation circuit kicks off next week with the Palm Springs shows. This is a beautiful venue for showing dogs, if you are entered I hope to see you there, and wish you the best of luck.
