Paradise Found: Fun Day 2009

The past two weekends, our campuses have been turned into tropical paradises as we hosted our 51st annual Fun Day. Themed "Hawaii Fi'Do," on August 8 in Oregon, and August 15 in California, GDB rolled out the red carpet (or rather, the grass mats!) for our volunteers, friends and supporters as a way to recognize the efforts of our puppy raisers.

Hundreds of puppy raisers and their four-legged charges came from far and wide to spend the day socializing, learning what's new and exciting here at GDB, as well as getting valuable tips on puppy handling and canine behavior straight from our experts. Through live presentations, interactive booths and educational exhibits, Fun Day was no lazy day at the beach, but rather a totally awesome learning adventure - complete with hula dancing.

Please check out our Fun Day photo slideshows on Flickr to see all of the fun and activities:

  1. I think you guys should have a Funday in Colorado so us raisers out east can see what it's like! Even if it's just something small.
