Denali, a 6-year-old Samoyed from Lake Forest Park, is all smiles as he finishes his run on the course in the Samoyed Club of Washington State AKC Agility Trial at Sky River Park on Saturday. Denali is owned and handled by Kathy Timmons, also from Lake Forest Park.
“Samoyed dogs come from Siberia and were originally bred to be all-around farm dogs; they can herd, hunt and pull,” she said. ”The dogs themselves were used for warmth–you know, a three-dog night–and the hair can be used for thread, weaving and clothing.”
