Our new club display got first prize at the mall

February Club Meeting

We had two new puppies this month, both German Shepherds.

Here is Coleen with Wyatt

Hannah with Trigg

Beginning of a great Ifriendship!

Area Coordinator Christine Higham brought a unique doggie game!

The muffin trays were filled with tennisballs, and small treats were hidden under some balls.

Even the little pups got in on the fun.

We had three new pups, all German Shepherds! Hannah and Ashley have sibling pups, "Archie" and "Augusta"

The star of the evening was "Inky", an all-black German Shepherd. His raiser, Ross, is our newest club member. What is more significant, is the fact that "Inky" is the 100th puppy in the club since Joan Maloney became our leader in 2002!


"Inky" appeared to be very tired by the end of our meeting!

All the Shepherds together
