Celebrating 15 Months at the K9k

Today was the day we’d been waiting for!  We got to see our friends and meet lots of new ones.  The drive to Elk Grove was a pleasant one–a bright green day in the Valley, clear but not too hot.  When we arrived, we met up with Bob and Emily, got checked in, and went to find the Homeward Bound booth.  There we met Shelby’s friends as our NorCal Tripawd Buddies showed up one by one. There was quite a gathering of Tripawds.


This is one side of the circle of booths, from the pavilion area where the speakers were.


We happened upon another Anatolian Shepherd whose job is to watch over alpacas.


We walked and talked our way around the circle of booths, stopping frequently. At the Banfield booth, we spun the wheel and won a window decal that says “I Love Sloppy Kisses”. How true. At the UC Davis booth, there was a picture of Caira Sue. We missed her. On our booth walk, we met rescue people, and children, and dog oncologists, and new tripawds. Dog people are a friendly lot, always saying something encouraging and offering a pet.



We sat awhile in the pavilion to hear the speakers, we met Dr. Nancy Kay and got an autographed copy of “Speaking For Spot”, and then the booths were being dismantled–it was time to leave.

As we got near home, another friend called and invited us to stop there on our way. Cemil met their dogs, Lena and Tinker Bell, thinking for a minute that he’d like to play, but then opted to quietly enjoy the cool green lawn while we observed the mockingbirds in their trees.
