Airline tickets are bought for our trip to New York City, for the Westminster Kennel Club for Anna to participate in Juniors. A show she had to qualify for by taking at least 7 Best Junior Handler Awards. This is the big show they televise in February each year. The trip is also very expensive. Anna has been holding raffles as well as working a part time job to help make this dream a reality. Several people asked if there was a way to directly help her out financially so she has set up an account:
I would like to thank all of you have supported me to help me achieve my dream of participating at Westminster Kennel Show.THANK YOU so much, Anna

Award Winning Australian Shepherd Kennel in Washington State
In April of 2009, I sent our Jazz to be bred to Cathy and Ally Haverdink's (TreeSong Aussies) to be bred to their stud dog, Moulder. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that any breeder would refuse to return my dog but that is exactly what happened and not only that, they shipped her to Nancy McCullough and Alisha Curtis (Prestige Aussies), Jazz's breeder, without my permission. Jazz was returned to us only after filing a 450k lawsuit against all parties involved. Please read our story on Jazz under Jazz's Nightmare.
