Well we loaded up the big rig and all the kids and drove 12 hours to Purina Farms in Missouri in mid May. After dodging a Tornado we settled down to business at hand. Deborah is newly elected on the Board of the National Club and David is helping with the Judges Education Committee. We got to see lots of old friends, but more importantly we got to see many great dogs. The quality is amazing and it makes you think about your own stock and the future of your breedings. Several Dragonpatch kids made it to the ribbons, like Boomer and Cracker. We are always proud of our kids as they represent our love of the breed. We didn’t come home with any really big wins, but we did learn a lot and hopefully we can apply those lessons and make the Dragonpatch a top competitor in the future. This summer we hope to see new kids to carry on the tradition.
