If you're in or around Portland, Oregon, Fergus and I would like to invite you to this event. My husband's nursery, Joy Creek Nursery, is located in Scappoose, Oregon (http://www.joycreek.com/index.htm) and they're hosting a dog day on August 14. They'll have games, contests and a class about making your yard dog-friendly or dog-proof (depending on your perspective). Everything is free, but they're collecting cans/bags of dog food for the Colombia Co Humane Society.
Anyway, Fergus and I would love to meet you! Plus, I think some of the events might be a little skewed towards a basset winner and Fergus could use some competition.
Oh man! We will be out of town (camping & working a rodeo) that week shoot! Take lots of pictures & we will be there for round two! PB did come in 3rd place in the puppy dash so she's definitely a competitor!
