2014 National Specialty
We had a wonderful at Purina Farms in Gray Summit, MO on Thursday, October 23rd, 2014. We had a total Chinook turnout of 15 dogs, several of which were brand new to the show ring.

1st Annual Chesterh Sweetie Award
We were thrilled to have new UKC-judge-to-be Karen with us observing our Specialty, and she kindly offered to judge the sweetest Chinook. Standing at the center of the ring, Chinooks approached her one by one for a "meet and greet" to find the sweetest of the bunch! Nashira was deemed the sweetest, and received a beautiful Rosette and gift certificate.
Chesterh Sweetie Winner - Bashaba Naunbat Nashira (Nashira)
