    Great weekend! I just got back (it's 3:15 in the morning). The speakers were great, although I missed some parts because I was helping Roo with Wallace and our other two dogs there. One of my favorite speakers was Laura from Indy Pit Crew/Animal Farm Foundation talking about dealing with the media. She got a little beyond the basics and it was very helpful. I also enjoyed hearing Bill Bruce talk about how streamlined and professional Animal Control is in Calgary. Sounds like a dream for dogs there. We got a few CD's with more information and we'll be receiving copies of the whole conference on DVD so I'm excited to go through all of that. We are at the beginning of a BSL fight in Minnesota and I am like a sponge right now!
