We asked ourselves if we were crazy to invite hundreds of adopted German Shepherds to come for a party in their honor, and we worried about the mischief that our former orphans would stir up. Amazingly, our first annual GSROC Reunion went off without a hitch! It was a beautiful day in the park, and approximately
100 dogs seemed to sense that the day was all about THEM! Proud parents from as far off as Palm Springs, Los Angeles, Lake Havasu and Big Bear beamed as they showed off their adopted fur-kids. There were contests including “Longest Tail” and “Tallest Ears”, vendor booths from some of our favorite sponsors and friends, terrific raffle prizes, and delicious home made goodies to enjoy after the picnic lunch.

As the dogs lounged and made new friends, Vladae “The Russian Dog Wizard” educated pet guardians about how to improve their handling skills. You can visit him online at
