Dec. 6, 2014 - Annual Christmas Party and Gift Exchange/Gift Stealing
Karen Toth graciously opened up her house (again!) for the annual potluck and gift exchange. Most popular this year, both in offering and stealing, were lap blankets and throws. Joining our club this year were members of the Northern California German Shepherd Fanciers club. Club Presidents Ben Bigorna and Theresa Royer, and members themselves, announced titles that members and their dogs achieved this year.For those unfamiliar with the stealing rules, each person has the option of taking a wrapped gift or stealing it from someone else who then gets to open a new gift. The person who steals a gift for the third time keeps it and that gift is protected from future thievery. As one might guess, the end of the exchange becomes quite the free-for-all.

After members enjoyed the potluck dishes, Larry Altree's pizza and Mary Lemon's cookies being deemed the favorites, Club President Theresa Royer called the meeting to order and ran through the business of the club, first asking for brags from the members.We applaud the following:
Theresa then gave a short presentation on the basics of tracking. The members laid their tracks as the daylight ebbed and finished in the near dark.
The Diablo Valley German Shepherd Dog Club meets several times a year on the second Tuesday of the month. We usually meet in the Walnut Creek/Danville area.
