We needed money so we could put on "real" dog shows so we held the famous (or infamous) club Rummage Sale Fundraiser at Kari Olsons...
Our Rummage was sure fun, and we even made some money..that'd Dorothy Johnson sitting in the lawn chair, Dick Budny on the lounge
with a dog. Barb Budny hs a striped top, and she is in the middle of the photo. Baldur the Brave was Kari Olson's young male, about a year old
and who was dressed up by Viki Lawton his breeder.
Becky was always making us laugh..... and Kjella was Kari Olsons Olson's Kjella Av Bondegard CDX with the FAMOUS berry basket bra.
Now who looks better in this bra? .

1998
THE GMNEA MOOSE

Looking to improve upon our State Fair booth, the women of GMNEA decided it needed a MOOSE . Not finding one easily we decided to BUILD A MOOSE. AND WE DID!
We used a PVC pipe frame, added chickenwire, padding and fiberfill, then sewed fur over it. Adding antlers and eyes, nostrils, it became...............OUR MOOSE.

The builders were Becky Thompson, Barb Budny, Bobbie Oxley and Kari Olson-



CH VIKIRO BELLE'S DESPERADO supervising Add chickenwire and fiberfill
Sew the fiberfill so it fits nicely then add the fur and sew it.

Eyes and big nostrils fit the bill... Ready for the fair with Ch Midnight Sun Heartlight CDX
