first male that we've ever kept in this breed. About 12 weeks
the picture to the left... Always watching, intent on what was going on
in the household. So much more attentive than the girls ever
at this age.
Seven because he's actually the seventh American Eskimo Dog I've ever
kept and the number seven is one of my favorite numbers... Let's see if
it holds true :-)
the picture to the right you can see him already learning the ropes of
the deck. His Auntie Hope to his left, with mom Journey in
middle and Hope's dam Ruby to the far right. He was already a
member of the pack at such a small age.. And such a joy to watch
as he interacted with "Da Girls".
weeks with the goofiest look on his face.. I was told that
dogs were much different than the girls. I'm beginning to
that out. While the girls are loving and interactive it seems
though this little boy is very much more focused on me and more willing
to lie on the recliner with me in the evenings. More so than
dam Journey ever was and she was a regular cling-on at this age.
old here and attending his very first UKC show as a Novice Puppy.
Standing by the ring watching what's going on. He
enjoyed being out in the grass and around the other dogs.
did quite well at the 2011 UKC Washington Classic. He earned
one Reserve Best In show Novice Puppy and three Best In Show Novice
of six shows total. These are his ribbons we took back to the office on

had a wonderful time at the Classic as you can see. I'm
excited to enter Seven in regular classes and look forward to his
upcoming UKC, AKC & CKC career as he matures and makes his mark!
finished his UKC Champion title September 25, 2011 at the age of
seven months with Best Of Winners Major adding to his Best Of Winners
Major from Madras, OR show in August. He also had a couple of
Best Males to go with them. Now we start our Champion Class
competition and see how we do... We'll need 5 Champion Class
wins to finish his Grand Champion title with UKC...

earned Best Of Breed, Best Puppy of Breed, and Best Bred By
Exhibitor of Breed both Saturday and Sunday at the Canadian Tradex Show
Halloween weekend 2011. He also took us to group
both days and on Saturday he made the cut out of 18 dogs in the group.
The judge pulled 8 dogs out for her final cut and while he
didn't place 1st through 4th just making the cut at such a
young age was an awesome win for me. He was just 8 months
fun part was that they were taping that day for TSN
to be aired mid December 2011. So we've been on TV already.
I've ordered the DVD to watch once it arrives.
even better win that day was Bred By Exhibitor Group... Seven earned
Best Bred By Exhibitor in Group that day. I can't tell you
how wonderful that made me feel. Believe it or not......it
would have superseded even a Best In Show.. It's
the icing on the cake for a breeder... :-)
2012 show season is upon us starting this month January 2012... We have
the Puyallup, WA show mid January, Portland, OR the 3rd weekend of
January and then we're leaving for Phoenix, AZ for the UKC
shows the last weekend of January. Here's hoping we have more to add to
Gabriel's Song Of The Trump at 8 months
for our on-going photo album for Seven. I plan to continue
to add to it as he grows. Come back and visit often
