It was a great evening to celebrate the sport of dogs and appreciate the beauty of mans best friend. I had a great time in New York but am ready to head home to California. If nothing else, but to escape the snow and cold temperatures!
note: "Wisdom Wednesday" featuring Dr Sidney Wang will return next week.
