The K9 Corps Agility 2016 Season Opener is in the books and by all standards this weekend was a huge success! Dozens of happy humans and their canine team mates converged upon Dogwood Acres for 2 1/2 days of NADAC Agility fun under the supervision of judge Doug Ricks from Maple Valley, Washington. So many smiles, laughter, and friendships renewed after a long winter off, new friends bringing their dogs here for the first time, a smokin’ hot match of Lawn Yahtzee on Saturday after the runs completed (thanks for bringing that along Audri), and of course – lots of tasty food. Thanks to everyone who brought delicious offerings to the Saturday night pot luck!
