I am honored to be the President elect of the Sun Maid Kennel Club of Fresno, Inc. and look forward to leading our group of amazing members. We currently have 35 members and thankfully almost all 35 members participate in our annual Sun Maid Kennel Club Dog Show. We truly have an outstanding dedicated group of members.
I breed and show Silky Terriers under the kennel name of Shenanigan Silky Terriers. I love giving back to something that has given me so much enjoyment!
Our 2022 dog show was one of the most successful dog shows in California with over 5,000 dogs over three days of dog shows in February. We are busy working on the 2023 show with our theme being presented and voted on by our members. Longtime member Lynne Stuart's theme was chosen! Mardi Gras it is and Laissez Le Bon Temps Rouler (Let the good times roll) is how we are approaching our 2023 show!
On October 5th, 2022 our Show Chairman and Club was awarded the Blue Ribbon Award from the Western Fair Association on behalf of the Fresno Fair. Tim’s longtime commitment and relationship has led the path to have a great show facility year in and year out. We are proud to have Tim lead us into 2023.
Our club is dedicated to providing the best show experience possible. Last year we were honored to be a part of AKC TV as they featured our Group and Best in Show judging on Saturday. Each year we are thinking of ways to improve our show. Our exhibitors are our priority!
Finally, we have donated thousands of dollars to the Fresno PD Canine Division and have enjoyed that partnership over the last several years.
We hope to see you in Fresno in February 2023, trust me you will not be disappointed!
