Husky Logo #64


woo!

Today we are saying a very special woo to the Huskies of Monadnock Regional High School. I couldn't find any graphic huskies on their website, so I have used the picture of the red husky on their home page.

Here's where it gets exciting, though. They call their yearbook the Pandorian. Yep, they named their yearbook after my Great X 8 Grandfather Pando. He was the official mascot of the school.

One of the most important kennels in Siberian husky history was the Monadnock Kennels, and G8 Grandpa Pando was one of the most influential Siberian huskies for the development of the breed. He won 4 Specialty shows and 5 consecutive Best of Breeds at Westminster from 1957 to 1961. He also produced many puppies who went on to also be champions. Many of his pups also grew up to look a lot like him.

We've really loved reading all this husky history. But I have a question: how in the world did they get those huskies to line up and stand so politely? Where's the woooing and the yowling and the dancing? Did they slip each of them a few handfuls of mother's little helper (or would that be canine's little helper) before the show?

Thank you for finding and posting the picture of Aunt Lorna and Pando. I remember playing with Pando and King and a sea of their pups in Fitzwilliam when we were kids.
