MBKC Members and their dogs dressed in Patriotic attire, performed wonderful tricks and played silly games. It was all filmed to create a movie to be sent to our Military Troops over seas via the Give2TheTroops program. Dan Ackerman, retired Army Dog Handler and his wife Kelly, an Army Military Police Officer joined the members as special guests. The Dress Your Dog Relay, Musical Chairs and "Snoopy Says"...like the game "Simon Says" were fun & crazy. The laughter was over the top when the MBKC Members played the "Don't Eat the Hotdog" game....the Member threw a hot dog about 25 feet away, then sent their dog to retrieve it....whoever has the most hotdog left when the dog comes back is the winner. Most of these highly trained dogs didn't bring much hotdog back to the Owner.....in fact only Sheryl Evans and her Newfie, Liberty, had ANYTHING left of the hotdog.
Patti Shepard and her Rottweiler, Tucker, won the "Best Dressed Couple" Award.
Lori Nickeson and her German Shepard, Monty, marched to Military music and thanked the Troops for their service, with Monty giving them a Dog wave.
Sandy Lachowski and her Rhodesian Ridgeback, Magic, gave a wonderful demonstration of keeping you and your dog fit, from lifting weights to playing basketball.
Liberty also showed a wonderful trick where she held the American Flag in her mouth, sat up, and waved to the Troops.
MBKC Members and their dogs, train, perform & serve in many areas, including conformation, obedience, agility, fieldwork, herding, therapy, rescue, and tracking, just to name a few. The Club meets for a business meeting the 3rd Monday of every month, 6:45pm at DeBrut's K-9 Training Center, located between Bend and Redmond. Except for in August (we hold our Member's Picnic) and in December (we do a Christmas celebration).
