Puppy Fun Match (Orangevale, CA)

We brought Romeo and Giulietta to their first informal dog show today, a Puppy Fun Match in Orangevale, CA. When we were at a local pet store, we met a lady in the Canidae dog food section who told us about the Puppy Fun Match and we thought it would be something fun to do with our puppies. Romeo won Best of Breed and Giulietta won Best of Opposite Sex. đŸ™‚
