BAARK went to Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant for brunch with Santa.
We took Jam, Easton, Kelton and Melissa to the South Coast Plaza. The Christmas decorations were already set up. The South Coast Plaza is full of fun challenges for the puppies. There are tall staircases, waterfall, glass elevators, stores, distractions galore. We even had the opportunity to listen to the USC marching band.
As always, we love when Rick comes to our meetings. Learn new techniques and reinforce others and unlearn ones we were not supposed to be doing. This time we were locked out of our meeting hall so we used the tables and lighting from the restaurant next door and did just fine. Nice night to be outdoors.
The two new babies were there, Easton and Jam along with Melissa, Navarro and Kelton.

Our August puppy outing was to downtown Fullerton. We took a bus ride and walked by the train tracks. All puppies did well.
The annual Hollywood Bowl event was great. Pink Martini was the feature this year (http://pinkmartini.com/) – very fun. I took Melissa and we enjoyed a girls night out. The bus left from Lakewood to the Hollywood Bowl which makes the evening so fun. We joined the other clubs for a before picnic then went into the HB. We always have great seats with cushions! At the end it is a mad dash to the busses – great chance to see how the puppies do in shoulder-to-shoulder crowd. Melissa handled it perfectly!!
