Some of Rumor's Highlights:
Reserve Winners Bitch at the 1998 Chicago Siberian Husky Specialty.
2nd place in the American Bred class at the 1998 National Siberian Husky Specialty.
Reserve Winners Bitch at the 1999 Indiana Siberian Husky Specialty.
Rumor finished her championship in 1999 at the Chicago Siberian Husky Specialty.
4th place in the Brood Bitch class at the 2001 National Siberian Husky Specialty.

On July 4, 2012 we celebrated Rumor's 16th birthday.

Our very first Champion, she taught us so much.

A dirty faced agouti and two amateur owner handlers. Not the best mix for the breed ring.

When she took her first points, I asked another exhibitor,

“What just happened?”

That year she took us on a trip of a lifetime, taking Reserve at the 1998 Chicago Specialty and at the 1999 Central Indiana Specialty.

When she took 2nd in her class at our first National in 1998,

the judge looked at Bill and said,

“Yes, in spite of your terrible handling.”

And when she finished at the 1999 Chicago Specialty, it was like nothing we have ever experienced.

Running to congratulate Bill, while crying out loud, I saw him come out of the ring with tears streaming down his face.

We used to say, “That was better than sex!”


Rumor passed away on December 13, 2012.

Rest in peace our sweet, sweet girl.
