On Dec. 10 the Happy Tails Dog Club held a holiday party at Donna Steibel’s lovely home. With 35 members bringing appetizers and desserts, there was lots of delicious food, plenty of good cheer, and lots of companionship and conversations. After partaking in lunch, a white “dog” gift exchange was held, with a couple gifts highly sought after and snatched away the maximum of exchange times! Nancy Kilkenney had her gifts taken from her several times, but she, along with everyone else who participated, had plenty of fun and ended up with some nice gifts. Many thanks to Donna Steibel for hosting and to Kimberly Grasser and Lorraine Wilson for their help in getting things set up and cleaning up afterwards.

The Happy Tails Dog Club’s first official meeting of 2023 will be held on Saturday, Jan. 14, at 10:30 a.m. in Room 103 at the CATC building. Our guest speaker will be Dr. William Gengler, DVM, DAVDC.

He is a Diplomate of the American Veterinary Dental College and has 26 years of experience in general small animal practice, and over 20 years of experience in dental specialty practice. Dr. Gengler is a Robson resident and shares his home with his constant companion Lolly, an incredibly sweet little rescue dog. Please join us for this very important meeting about a dog’s dental health.
