2011 Fun Match – Was a great success…..

Karen Ramstead came from Canada to be a judge for the fun match and did two Fantastic talks
about breeding, training and racing Siberians. One was for Norsled at Homewood Winery in
Sonoma. The wine and weather were both great. The following day SNDD hosted a luncheon
at Harry’s Hafbrau which was also great. Both were successful fundraisers for each group.

Karen then judged our Fun Match. It was a wonderful day, not too hot and had tons of people
that were there to help set up. Norsled brought the troops in (literally from the local base) to
help with all the big stuff (awnings crates boxes) We had over 50 dogs (mostly sibes and sled
dogs with a few sams). As usual we had a fantastic raffle and silent auction (that benefitted all
the participating groups). The big item was for Norsled – a Diggler scooter (our Beth
Chamberlain got that). Bill Griffiths did Canine Good Citizen for Malamute Rescue, with 7
taking the test and 5 passing it. Barbara Schaffer was there to talk to people about Urban
Mushing with your dog and did a few runs with people’s dogs. Norsled also had a behaviorist
there that did a GREAT Huky Charm class where you could talk about and get ideas on
common northern breed issues. Marilyn was also a GREAT judge for Junior Handling. There
were 4 wonderful girls that participated.

Thanks to all that participated and joined us in a day of fun.

Randy Fishel took pictures that day and they should soon be posted on BASH’s website under
4th of July tips - Be SAFE

1. Make sure your dog gets plenty of exercise earlier in the day.
2. Keep your dogs inside during fireworks, preferably with human
companionship. If it’s hot, air conditioning will help. Bringing your dogs
to a fireworks display is never a good idea.
3. Provide a safe place inside for your dogs to retreat. When scared of
sounds they can’t orient, dogs often prefer small enclosed areas. (I once
had a dog who climbed in the bathtub during windstorms.) If your dog is
comfortable in a crate, that is a good option.
4. If possible, keep the windows and curtains closed.
5. Make sure all your dogs are wearing ID tags with a properly fitting
collar. (Dogs have been known to become Houdini around the 4th of July.)
6. Leave your dog something fun to do – like a frozen Kong filled with his
favorite treats.
                                         Banana Dog Treats
These are sweet treats so use sparingly. Banana dog treats should be refrigerated OR placed in
zip lock bags and remove a few at a time for daily use.
3 cups rolled oats (don't use quick cooking oatmeal)
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup honey
1/2 milk
2 bananas, mashed
Preheat Oven to 325 degrees
Grease a 9.5 x 14 baking pan
Combine oil, honey, milk, eggs and bananas in a large bowl and mix well. Add dry ingredients
in 3 intervals mixing lightly each time to incorporate.
Spread mixture in pan and bake for about 25 minutes. Allow to cool and cut into 2" squares.
Quilting for Fall Furry Flurry….

There are a number of us in BASH that enjoy and relax with sewing. Making booties, bandanas
or quilts for raffles and ourselves.

We have purchased a cute pattern that has 9 panels of different dogs. Each dog pattern will be
done using the applique technique. We thought it would be fun to teach others how to do this
with this quilt. We will then raffle this quilt at the Fall Furry Flurry.

Anyone interested, please come and join us.

The first Quilt Session will be Friday July 15th at Randee’s house. Don’t bring a machine to
this one. We will be drawing the pieces, picking material and maybe cutting some. The second
session (we can agree on a date at the first one) will be putting them together into the large quilt
(if we get that far)

Join us any time after 6:30 pm, 906 Sweetbriar Dr., Campbell RSVP bash@com-tl.com or call
Randee at (408)371-1841.
They come in the following flavors in 8 oz packages

1. Mint & yogurt $ 2.00
2. Pumpkin pie $2.00
3. Peanut butter & bananas $2.00
4. Sweet potato & coconut $4.00

Shipping is $3.95

So give them a try your dogs will be howling for more.

                  Umunhum Run and Camping
                                         July 30, 31
In previous years I was able to set a schedule for the summer. This year we have
been unable to run as much because they have been deomolishing buildings on the
old base. It has been to dangerous to be there so we have waited to set the runs.
This is TENTATIVE…can change from weather, Fire or schedules that cause us to
change the date.

                                       We have a MULE now for carting and bathroom runs.
                                   This will be the first camping trip of the summer. We have
                                   to pull out all the stuff we put away for the winter (BBQ,
                                   tables, etc)

                                   We meet around 5 pm on Saturday night and if the weather
                                   allows, we run the dogs between 7 and 9 pm. If it is warm
                                   we eat dinner first and then run them. They run from 1 mile
                                   to 7 miles, again it is based on the weather… Dinner is a
group effort.
Some people then camp in tents but most campout in their cars or beside them.

In the morning we rise with the sun and run the dogs again. We try different dogs in different
positions and come back to a GREAT group breakfast and off the hill by 11 am…. You still
have time to do things before the end of the weekend.
Most people go up for the whole event. SOMETIMES (not all the time) we have a couple that
only come up for the evening part. This can only happen if we have at least two cars going
down at the same time.

Time to meet- 5 pm at the lowest gate (there are three locked gates so we have
to stay together)

      RSVP Randee at (408) 371-1841 or bash@com-ctl.com by the WEDNESDAY
before the weekend to find out what to bring and for how many.

         What you need to bring- your own drinks,
 sleeping bag, food for your dog and food for dinner
                   and or breakfast

Chinook is a strikeing 2 year old male siberian husky. He is about 55 pounds so he is also average size
for a siberian. He is very affectinate and loves human contact. He gets along with large as well as
medium dogs, but not cats or small dogs. Chinook loves swimming in a pool, playing with toys and
going for walks on the beach plus digging holes in the sand. He is very gentle and loves to chews on
nylor bones along with playing tug a war with ropes. He knows how to sit, gives his paw and lay down.
Chinook loves going for rides, and chases birds in our yard. He needs a family with husky experience or one that wants to
work with an intelligent siberian.

Ashley is a racing Siberian. She has a shorter coat and thin tail. Ashley would be a good companion
dog as she likes to play with my dogs and play with toys. She is not good with small animals, cats
and rodents, however she enjoys seeking and giving attention and likes sleeping in her crate at
night. She is ok on a leash, however she will pull when other dogs bark. I have noted that she is
getting more protective, she has barked when some come to the door.
Beth Chamberlain 408-859-3101 b.d.c@comcast.net
Brad/Jhargis is a beautiful 3 year old Siberian Husky mix. He is a tall, leggy boy about 55 lbs. with a
snowy white coat and a grey saddle. He has deep brown eyes. He loves to be with the family and
would make a wonderful companion. He would most likely do best with another dog to keep him
company when his human companions are away. He has gotten along with other dogs he has been
introduced to and while he is curious about cats, he has been easy to call away. He enjoys daily walks
and is a pleasure on the leash. He knows basic commands; "sit", "down", "leave it" His does need to
have a secure yard so he doesn't decide to take self-guided walking tours.
Patty LaCava 415-722-5727 pattylacava@yahoo.com
Leo is a beautiful black and white woolly Siberian husky. Although someone destroyed his pride by
shaving him, his leonine coat will soon grow back restoring him to his former glory. His eyes are a
beautiful ice blue. He is most likely 3 to 4 years old and weighs 50 pounds. He is crate trained and house
broken. He has some basic obedience training and will sit and shake paws even without treats. Leo does
pull when starting out on a walk and needs more work in this area. A front clip harness would be helpful.

Evian is a fantastic pure bred siberian husky that needs a new home. i would make a great
companion for another dog or a person that just wants someone to walk with. I am great
when left in the house, loves to ride in a car, am house trained and love being in my crate. I
have been raised with kids of all sizes and am fine around them. I am very healthy, i still
sled and would love to do it, but will also be happy just hanging out of the couch.
Randy Fishel randyf@sibernet.co,Sweet boy that was found as a stray in Monterey. He loves
people, and likes to play with other dogs. He plays a bit rough, so other dogs should be on the
larger side, but would love to also have a companion to play with. He is good indoors and out,
and is very attentive to people. This is a dog that needs to be part of a family as much as
possible, and not left as an outside dog. Do you have a place in your home for him?
Heron Ho 510-921-6424 snowlets8@yahoo.com
Loki came to rescue because the family that owned him decided that they didn't have time for
him since they were having a second child. He is a purebred siberian but they couldn't find his
papers when they surrendered him. He is a great dog that needs a home that wants to love him.
He was raised with a child and is good with other dogs. He can be overwelmed with a situation
and will retreat to the nearest kennel.
