I did just fine until Quito came out and when they started putting the Golden Harness on her, I started crying.

How do they pull all of this love out of us and make us aware that we can be human and true instead of quarrelsome, selfish beasts?

Thanks so much for the video of Allen's acceptance (s)of various honors at the YQ 1000 banquest!

Poquita like the steak!!! She has very good manners, so she appears to have ashown interest and I hope Aliy asked for a "doggie bag" for the 4-legged champ!!!

It is a privilege and an honor to support SP Kennel!!! Thanks to website for everything you share with us!

What a wonderful, heartfelt, and very deserved award ceremony! Congratulations does NOT say it all! There are no words to express all the talent, dedication and love that you all put into what you do!
Oh Quito, I love you so much! Hope you enjoyed your steak! :)

Poquita didn't want to mess up her new harness while we were all watching and talking about her?

Once again Allen and Aliy make me proud. Allen, thanks for choosing the Special Olympics for the $1000 donation. Quito, I wouldn't want to eat in front of all those people either!

Great video. I too started to cry when the golden harness was awarded. A doggy bag to go for sure. Go SP Kennel & good luck in two weeks. Will be glued to my computer tracking race. Mush On!!

What a privilege to see the 2014 banquet pix. Thanks so much.

This was a wonderful video - Allen was so well-spoken, hitting just the right note (or two or three notes) and obviously Quito liked the steak!!! Last year, IIRC, she just turned her nose away...

Everything else everyone has said goes for me, too!

Thank you very much for the video of YQ awards. Ditto to all the above comments. I also shed some tears when Quito came on stage. That is one fantastic dog. SPK is the absolute best. Thanks again.
