We kicked off the season at the Bradenton walkathon where we had beautiful weather and a great turnout.

The next walkathon attended was in St. Petersburg, where the weather was a bit more gloomy, as were some of the raiser's spirits as it was also In For Training Day for Amanda and Steve's pup, Bobb. However, there was a ray of sunshine as they also picked up their newest pup; sweet, adorable LuLu.

The sun came back out for the Sarasota walkathon, where Jeff and Linda and their puppy-in-training, Ava were joyously welcomed by Team Ava.
In between all of the walkathons, we had a fun meeting at Hunsader Farms in east Bradenton, where the pups all had the chance to meet a variety of farm animals. The sweet little pony was the "paws down" favorite. All the pups were also well behaved as we enjoyed a picnic lunch under the beautiful oaks.

|Yes, Sophia, you certainly do deserve a rest!|
