There were tons of vendors

It was a VERY warm day. The neighboring group had graciously provided baby pools full of ice water. The greyhounds found this VERY inviting!

It is the cow dogs turn..Dana and Ally like to hang togetherHarry and Rusty Cali takes a turn on the agility course..a cookie got her to that point and then she bailed outThere were more dogs there than just greyhounds!
