The ACC Supported Golden Gate Kennel Club shows
January 26 & 27th welcomed The American Chesapeake Club supported annual benched Golden Gate Kennel Club shows for us. My cousin Jan Holshevnikoff of Chesany Chesapeakes came down from Idaho with two of her Chesapeakes and stayed with us for a few days! And what a terrific time we had!!!
On Thursday, Jan met her half brother and sister-in-law for the first time and we all had a wonderful evening at my place getting acquainted, then Jeff and Lisa spent most of Saturday at the show with us. To quote my friend “What I really enjoyed was watching Jan getting to know her new brother and visa versa. They were both so thrilled it gave me a warm feeling just taking in their joy. Her brother and his wife are very nice people and I'm glad they found each other.” Jan was adopted and only recently had her birth records unsealed so she could find her family!! This as been quite an exciting ride for both of us as I am Jan’s ‘adopted’ cousin on my side of the family and Jan has kept me in the loop!! I actually met Jeff and Lisa in December at a local Christmas Fair and got to report back to Jan.
