Right: Jennifer Long and bandmate from Thee Merry Widows taking a break between sets. These girls ROCKED. Thank you ladies!
Above, a favorite image from the show: Missouri bust dog survivor - the irrepressible Gigi - was there in spirit to remind us how much has been accomplished and how far we still have to go. This photo was donated by Andre Hermann Thanks again, Andre!

(Are these photos fuzzy, or is it just my brain? Hmm. A little of both.)
Thanks to sponsors: Lagunitas Brewing Co., Fosters Wine Group and Drake's Brewery for the libations. Right: Our ever-cheerful servers Suzanne and Peter.
The dogs always steal the show. Cris Cohen chaperones the very popular Muggy, Jonny Justice and Lola. I think some busy dogs had a sound night's sleep after a long exciting evening soaking up the limelight.
Iowa artist and breed advocate Steph Fitzsimmons donated this painting of Grace, who seems utterly delighted with the likeness .... (or maybe someone has a cookie on the other side of that camera?) Thank you Steph! Photo below: Cris Cohen
Thanks to everyone who came out to help us ring in a new decade of adventures, and to all the out-of-towners who sent well wishes. It's hard to imagine what the next decade will bring, but it's bound to be interesting.
Three cheers! Salud! Huzzah!
