Stef and I joined the California K9 Hikers organization, we had our first hike with them a couple of weeks ago during the peak of the fires in Yorba Linda. They are a great bunch of folks with dogs of all sizes http://www.caninehikers.com/
We met Frank and Trisha on that hike and it turns out that they adopted a dog from GSROC two years ago named Diego who they renamed Roman.
We met up them again over the Thanksgiving weekend on a hike in Eaton Canyon above Pasadena. I have attached a couple of pics and thought that it might be a nice addition to the happy endings section.
