Well the 2018 Gathering has come to an end. Beautiful weather this year for a turnout which may have been sixty (60+) people in attendance. I know, by comparing the names on the list, there where at least fifty-eight (58) people who responded to me and made it. There were also several other faces which I did not get around to and did not recognize (they did look like they were enjoying themselves too). Attending this year's event were current AIDog owners, previous AIDog owners, a couple on the waiting list and a few more which will soon be on the waiting list.
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. However, this year I would like to send a special shout out to Fallon, Jeannie and Kyle who drove up from southern California a week early to help with the chores around the kennel and with other heavy work in preparation for this event. Also I would like to thank Christy for taking on the task of having the t-shirts made up and handling the orders so attendees could have their shirts during the event.
This annual event is for you the owners but it is also for Kim, the founder of this wonderful breed. This year we tied in Kim's birthday this year with the event. Thank you Molly for ordering and bringing in the cake. Kim really enjoys watching as owners and their adult AIDogs return to where their journey began.
So many others jumped in and assisted in one way or another during the event. So let me just say, thank you again to everyone for their help.
I think is safe to say that all who attended had a wonderful time this year, I know I did. I am posting just a few photographs for now as I know there are community members out there waiting to hear about this year's event. There were a lot of people with a lot of cameras taking pictures throughout the day. I am sure many photographs will find their way here for all to enjoy.
