It was a great show weekend. I saw some nice dogs and got the chance to mingle with good people. This AM was also a good but nippy 24 degree walk with our Golden Retreiver friends, Oliver and Morgan. Farrah also had her OFAs and was a very good girl.
Friday was a rescue transport day for us, and a spur of the moment trip to Portland. It’s always a pleasure to lend a hand to Shibas 4 Life rescue, and I wish these 2 girls all the luck. They are very sweet and will great pets. They were relinquished due to owner disability and seem very well socialized and behaved:

Don’t micromanage and let the puppies be puppies.
