Well another Gathering is in the books.  I am happy to report the weather was beautiful and there was a great turn-out for this year's Gathering.  There were many AIDog owners, both long time owners and brand new owners.  There were also attendees on the waiting list and several who stopped by to check out the dogs in action.  I would not be surprised if a few names are added to the waiting list after observing these dogs interacting.  As of last night, one puppy left to its new forever home.

 

I would like to thank everyone who attended this year's event.  This event would not be successful without the support of all of you.  As I have mentioned before, this annual event is for you the owners but it is also for Kim. 

 

So many jumped in and assisted in one way or another during the event.  So let me just say, thank you to everyone there for their help.

 

I know many had a great time this year.  I was able to snap a few photographs during the 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 will post what few pictures I was able to get to include one group shot.  I am sure someone has a better group shot to post.  I also imagine others will be posting their experience at this event.

 

Here is a list of some of the owners and their dogs who attended:

 

Kutarr & Kameha with Cari

Marie & Robert with Spirit and Tulip

Bryan and Karen with Kama and Ta Le Ni Moon

Kathy and Gwen with Zena

Ron and Jackie with Pico

Rik with Nita

Buth and Christina with Feather

Alyssa with Wily

Carolyn with Ayita

Judy with Inca

Wendy with Tenshi

Sri with Sita

Sandy and Sheila (Canine Angels) with Nash, Utah and Thunder

Jamie with Skylar

Garret with Hawk

Jon and Gail with Arya (puppy)

Jeremy, Therese, Eliya, William, Daniel, Melaina, Henry and Tenley (Meadow's Family) with Meadow, Forest and Dune

Greg with Anoki

Kim with Rusty (puppy)

 

I apologize if we missed any names.

What great pictures. Thank you for sharing. I look forward to more pictures for the folks who can post them. I will definitely be bringing my camera next year. Thank you so much, Greg, Kim, Allison, and everyone else who helped  put this together. We had so much fun seeing so many amazing dogs and meeting new people who we can call friends. We were able to take home with us, New tips and doggie tricks. Thank you for that. You folks are truly atmazing. 

P.S. Jon walked away wanting a second one......yikes!!! :)

This was our 3rd Gathering :) . They get bigger and better every year. Ditto Jon and Gail thanking all who put it together.The Frisbee training/demo and the sled races were nice additions. See you next year!

Great Pictures everyone!!!! I was so bummed we had to cancel our plans to go to "The Gathering" this year.  I am already looking forward to being there next year.  We hope to get down to visit Kim later this summer at the very least.  Just got back from Teaks 2nd trip to Alaska where he had some Great Adventures in the Alaskan Wilderness.
