Well the 2017 Gathering has come to an end. Although it was nice and sunny, the temps reached 97 degrees which made it very warm. There was a great turn-out with roughly forty (40) attendees for this year's Gathering. Attending this year's event were current AIDog owners, previous AIDog owners, a few on the waiting list and one couple who drove out from Minnesota to pick up their first AIDog puppy.
I would like to thank everyone who attended this year's event. This event would not be successful without the support of everyone who attended as well as some who could not make it. This annual event is for you the owners but it is also for Kim who greatly enjoys watching as owners and their adult AIDogs return to where their journey began.
So many jumped in and assisted in one way or another during the event. So let me just say, thank you to everyone for their help.
I do want to send out a special thank you to Julie who set up her agility course for dogs and owners to enjoy. Also a thank you to Judy who recommended Brian Carvalho from Pawsitive Dog Of Southern Oregon who gave a brief introduction / explanation followed by a demonstration on canine nose work. I have received several positive comments about the demonstration as well some who were interested in checking it out further.
It appeared as if everyone had a great time this year, I know I did. I was only able to get a few photographs during the canine nose work demonstration, event but I know there were many people with cameras taking pictures throughout the day. I hope some of those photographs will find their way here for all to enjoy. I apologize since I totally forgot to get a group photograph this year. I will post what few pictures I was able to get.
