Plum Creek Kennel Club members visit Cimarron Middle School
in Parker, CO on March 6, 2014


14 years ago Alan Krenek began organizing this presentation to middle schoolers studying genetics in collaboration with a teacher at Sierra Middle School who later transferred to Cimarron.

Each year we introduce students to a variety of breeds and each club member that participates shares with the students how old their breed is, what they were originally bred to do, the country in which the breed originated, and what their particular characteristics are as well.

Talking points include what a dog show is all about, responsible dog ownership, the purpose of breeding purebred dogs, and when time permits, a bit about performance events and junior showmanship. Each year we do two presentations to three classes at a time.

This year Marty did a short demonstration of Rally with Gambler. At the end of the presentations, students are invited up to see the dogs close and personal and ask their owners questions.

We all had a great time talking about our dogs and the dogs loved all the attention!

This year’s participants pictured were, standing from left to right:
Marty Krenek with her Yorkshire Terrier, Jeff Melnick with his Akita, Bill Murray with his Schipperke, Kara Vandiver with her Italian Greyhounds, Jim and JoAnn Alford with their Russky Toys, Fred Foreman with his Portuguese Water Dog, and Mike McCarthy with his St. Bernard.

Sitting in front, left to right:
Kat Rainesalo with a Lundehund and Marlene Groves with her Bloodhound (Great photo! Thank You Marlene). Two people not pictured are Lynn and Mike Higgins who brought their Buhund and a Norbottenspets.

 


Congratulations
 to Karrisa Groves and GCH Houndwalkers Sebastian of the Groves !!

Karissa Groves (granddaughter of David & Marlene Groves) showing
GCH Houndwalkers Sebastian Of The Groves, rocked out a Junior 4th and a Junior 2nd at the Denver shows. Bloodhounds are not an easy breed to show, not even for professional handlers, so KUDOS to this new team and THANK YOU to the judges who rewarded them!


 



 

Congratulations to Kat Rainesalo and her Norwegian Lundehund

"CH RockDancers Ruby Tuesday" went BOB Friday and Saturday,
 earning her Grand Champion title.
