Have suggestions for an activity? Have questions? Email Aimee at email@example.com.
While not specifically shiba-related, I came across this on a malamute list that I belong to and thought it was a great event. Besides, shibas can pull a sled (lots of them anyway )
What is the Mush For a Cure? The Mush For a Cure is a non-competitive sled dog run with proceeds donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. This is not a race, no awards will be given for order of finish. This is a fun event to celebrate the sport of dog mushing and to cap off a winter of hard work, training and racing while raising funds to find a cure for breast cancer. The minimal entry fee is to cover the costs of insurance, trail permitting, etc. This can be in the form of a personal check from the participant, raised in pledges or both. However, participants are encouraged to get pledges above and beyond the entry fee.
Click on Event Calendar and page down to see my new dog show calendar. I’m updating it with information for shows within a ten state area. The information comes from AKC and I will rerun the report every month and check if there are any changes.
If you would like to have access to make additions/changes to this calendar, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will grant you permissions. If you look at KC of Yorkville on Saturday, April 4th, you will note that I have added that I’m going to be entered and a tentative count of entries. You are encouraged to do the same! You may also enter shows that are out of the ten state area if you wish, but you must be responsible for updates.
Disclaimer: I am not responsible if you enter a show based on this information, I would definitely encourage you to check the premium or the superintendent’s website to be sure of any information that is particularly important to you.
