  (Above left) Cloud was shown by her owner, Karen Storts-Avery, with Bruce Avery helping with chores. February 16, 2013 a new Zima star was shown for the first time --  “Zima's Every Cloud a Silver Lining” showed at the First Company Governor's Horse Guard in Hartford, CT.

  Cloud will next be at the Troy Kennel Club, April 6, 2013 at the Big E in West Springfield.  This is a real show - puppy class for 6-9 month old.  This is a Specialty sponsored by Minuteman Samoyed Club and the entry should be sizable! Again she came in third. (Above right)

  AKC has a new class (no points) for puppies from 4-6 months. Cloud turned five months old yesterday and part of the sale to Karen Storts Avery and Bruce Avery was that Cloud would be shown twice.  I know that Karen didn't want to show - and she knew nothing about it was a bit of an uphill battle.  So the story really starts below.

  February 16, 2013 a new Zima star was shown for the first time.  “Zima's Every Cloud a Silver Lining” showed at the First Company Governor's Horse Guard in Hartford, CT.  When Cloud arrived, she was a wild child!  She lives in rural Vermont where she runs free with her many buddies - a Keeshond is her BFF.  She has muscle like mad!  Cloud had never seen so many dogs prior to going in to the grooming area and thought it was her job to meet and greet every dog!

  Karen's friend and long time AKC judge Sheila R. Balch accompanied Cloud to the show.  Cloud didn't think final grooming was a lot of fun but being on the grooming table gave her an eagle's eye view. Judge Balch tidied Cloud's feet for proper presentation and fluffed her.

  Mentor Carrie Collier took her for a run down the aisle between tables and Cloud returned a different dog.  Magically she knew how to behave on a show lead!  As we waited for other puppies to be shown, Cloud studied dogs in the ring.  When I took her in as co-owner, she was READY to show.  Out of the ten working dogs entered, she took a Group 3 UNDER JUDGE FRED G. FERRIS.  He said to me: “IF I COULD HAVE GAITED HER MORE RAPIDLY, CLOUD WOULD HAVE BEEN GROUP 1”.

  Sunday was a fun day. Karen and Bruce Avery brought Cloud to visit her mother, Powder.   

   Lightning had a blast running with the two older dogs.

  Bruce took the picture to record the day.
