We received wonderful news today - Asia was approved by the SMCNA for breeding. She took her NAVHDA Natural Ability test in May and scored a perfect 112. Additionally, her PennHip score places her in the top 98th percentile of all Small Munsterlanders in the US, which means her hips are tighter than 98% of other dogs tested. The tighter the hips, the less chance of developing hip dysplasia or osteoarthritis problems as she ages, and it also means her puppies have a higher chance of never developing those genetic problems either! Her PennHip score was .2/.16.

We'd like to share the wonderul news that our Uma Abigale (Abi) was approved to breed by the SMCNA Breed Counsel. Her hip report is in the top 2% in the US, meaning she has an extremely low chance of developing any type of hip dysplasia or osteo arthritis and it also means healthy, well structured puppies in her future!

The 2014 Annual SMCNA Conference was held at Brushdale Farm in Maquaketa, Iowa and hosted by Michelle and Mark Wilbers. We had a wonderful time and attend several training classes over the weekend on conformation judging, first aid for your dog and several others - really great information! The bird derby is an annual event and last year Angus took 3rd place but unfortunately was beat out this year by Zip Hamele. At the awards ceremony, Sande was recognized with an Appreciation Award for her work as the SMCNA Treasurer and Board Member. The Annual Conference next year will be held at Hunting Hills Farm in Brainard, Nebraska, so plan on attending - you'll have a wonderful and informative weekend!
