St Croix Valley Kennel Club, near Minneapolis. August 23rd and 24th.

This is also the annual Specialty show for the Heartland SSC. We had a great time at the shows and Specialty. Fun Picnics and great food at the club get-together. Always nice to visit with all those folks. We did great showing. I was especially happy to have Magic cut by the judge on Saturday along with Liz Hansens boy and Penny Duffys'. Nice to know we can compete with two of the top dogs in the Country!. Ellie did great in Sweeps and the regular Classes. And Cinder showed well ... she is getting there!. The classes in Juniors were huge! The Judge at Mondays show was not very good and many of the exhibitors complained about him. We will not show our dogs to him again.
