Veterans Day Special 2005

On Saturday and Sunday, November 12/13, 2005, Peninsula Australian Shepherd Association (PASA) put on its’ semi-annual Conformation and Obedience Shows in Santa Nella, CA..  The Saturday conformation judges were Jane Dixon and Heidi Mobley.  The Sunday conformation judge was Laura Lee Shivers.  Obedience was judged by Cathy Durat on Saturday and William Iwamoto on Sunday. 

Many thanks to ALL the people who worked hard to make this show a success.  There were too many to name all the individuals.  However, here are some special Thank You's:

Trial Secretary:
                         Blanche Stimpson
Food (snacks, lunches for judges and workers, judges; dinner arrangements & more
                         Lora Cox and Debbie Cox
Ribbons (everyone thought they were beautiful):          
                         Amanda Hutchinson
Photos and Web Page:
                         Jean Danver

THANKS TO ALL WHO DONATED ITEMS AND SKILLS  and to
                         Margaret Guthrie and Cathy Craft (a PBGV owner)
who divided it between the two days, arranged it, sold tickets, did the drawing, and...

The show would not have occurred without the help of the many people who volunteered their time and effort to get it all done!  Thanks y'all!

Thanks also to all those who contributed to the collection of items to send to a soldier in Iraq.

Saturday after the judging two doggie games were played, plus a dog costume event.  It was great fun.  The weather was perfect.  Sunshine both days.  A great big Thank You to the handlers who entered their dogs and to the workers who gave their all to make this a successful event.
