This was a fantastic day to get together with our Airedales and meet other people interested in helping with Airedale rescue and SOAR. As much as I have gotten out to various events, I still met several wonderful people for the first time. The temperatures were cool and the weather was perfect! The Airedales all behaved themselves and several got to be ambassadors for the breed as other picnic-going families stopped by to scratch an ear or pose for a photo opportunity.
I wish that all of you could have been here, but I knew you were here in spirit. One person who couldn’t make it had the best of excuses…Bentley and Melissa Whybrew took the Therapy Dog test today and passed!!! Congratulations to both of you! What a special accomplishment. Did everyone know that Melissa’s Bentley won the contest for Blue Buffalo dog food and Bentley will be featured on their dog food bags? Bentley is quite the celebrity.
I had a wonderful time and enjoyed meeting all of you. You are all very special Aire-Angels.
