The National FFA Convention just completed this past weekend with several Okies having success. Tanner Miller from Mulhall-Orlando won a national proficiency award for his small animal project. He raises dogs. A lot of people in the Oklahoma goat world know Tanner and his family. Really good people. In 2007, Tanner brought a corgi puppy to the Oklahoma Youth Expo. Kela carried that dog around for two days. Finally, I agreed to let her buy it. That puppy is Sasha, our family dog.
Sasha is in charge of ranch security, chasing cats, chaperoning Duke on his adventures in the pastures, riding the four wheeler and chasing wethers as they are being exercised. She also keeps the place clean as she loves to eat hoof pieces when trimming hooves and the horn caps when I burn horns.
Congrats to Tanner and his family on their win. His win means that Sasha comes from a national champion program.
