I'm off to New York City this week for the 2017 ALAA Breeder Roundtable. The conference will include speakers such as well known Myra Savant Harris speaking on Reproduction and Neonatal Care. Dr Bell will be speaking about Genetics, Diversity and Disease Testing. Also Jane Killions will be explaining Puppy Culture and the wide range of topics under that umbrella including Puppy Socialization. There are expected to be around 150 Labradoodle breeders from across the country descending on the Big Apple. I look forward to making some valuable connections for the future for Patriot's Day Doodles!
Since I'm in the Big City, a friend of mine, Amber, from the Navy will be staying with me and we are going to spend a few extra days sightseeing. I'm looking forward to seeing Shakespeare's Garden in Central Park, Ground Zero where I'm not sure what to expect emotionally, and the Financial District because who can pass up a huge bull. Amber and I have a Best of NYC cruise booked which takes us around Manhattan Island and includes an up close with (drumroll). . .The Statue of Liberty!
