Well mum decided to desert us and dad to go to a Siberian Husky Breed Seminar to learn more about us! She took dad's Land Rover as she was going to do a favour and deliver someone's broken husky racing rig for someone who was going to be at the seminar to fix! Well mum had barely left home before the clutch broke on the car as she was overtaking a bus! It took 2 hours for the recovery man to go and rescue her and dad had to hire her another car to do the drive!
Mum says she had a lovely weekend at the seminar. The nice lady who had organised the seminar kindly invited mum to stay at her house the night before. Mum was really nervous as she didn't really know they lady and the championship judge was doing the seminar and some other husky experts were all staying too. Mum suffers from anxiety so was scared it might be a difficult weekend.
However it turned out to be just the opposite. Saturday was a lovely barbeque and mum got to meet all the dogs (including some that had run in previous Iditarod races) and here lots of stories about trips to Alaska to visit the famous Seppala kennels etc. She was also given lots of useful advice and for her future planned huskies (not all of the advice will be taken though lol)
Mum really enjoyed the seminar it covered our breed history and went over the breed standard and the reasons behind it. After the presentation everyone got to be hands on with a few other huskies to go over them like judges do to see what was good and bad about them. Mum said it was a lot to take in and she probably didn't grasp everything but when she has more time she will get her notes and pictures out and make me and Skye stand so she can go over us and tell us what is good and bad about us!
Wish mum had taken me to play with all those other huskies!
