A few pictures from the Nor Cal meet up.  It was a nice sunny day but breezy, we ended up leaving a little before 2 because it was a bit chilly.  We did get a chance to meet and talk with Barb Ahern, the holistic practitioner who practices Canine Acutouch. She worked a little on most of the pups (she sees Hannah regularly) but Elly, true to form, wouldn't be touched!  Barb did show me a couple of things I could do with Elly that should help with her anxiety.

Here is Barb with Elly and Hannah

Rosie is a ball dog! She seemed to be channeling our old friend Caira Sue.

Awwww! What terrific photos Karen, thank you so much! Elly in the big dog stroller is so cute!

Looks like a great time. I hope that more people around the globe will see how much fun it is to get together with other Tripawds!
