December 15 Annual Holiday Party
This was our biggest Holiday
Party ever. It followed the
usual format. Socializing, dinner, meeting with election of new
officiers and the gift exchange game. There was a
special guest of honor this year. Jim Basic from PowerPaws
was honored for sharing his deep agility wisdom. particuary in the
"dark arts" of Gamblers, all wiht good humor and corny jokes. He
was presented with a PASA t-shirt and a singing fish, to replace one
that was "lost" many years ago.
Murphy stepped down as president after two years. Jenny
Hutchinson was elected to replace her. All the other board
positions remained the same. Click here
to see the full slate. The gift exchange was a great ending.
We all went home very full of great food and the result of our
gift exchange. Much thanks to Mona Nichols for hosting this event.

took the dogs to the beach and did they have a good time. Our
president, Kathy Murphy, organized the event and it was a great
sucess. It was PASA's third Annual Beach Party. In attendance
were 11 PASA members, a toddler, 14 Australian Shepherds, and 1 golden
retriever puppy. We were blessed with bright blue skies and
near seclusion at our almost secret beach. Highlights
included: Seeing Sara Maasen's baby and Vicki O'Malley's
puppy venture into the ocean water for their first time. Seeing Susan
Carsen's dog, who is both deaf and blind (and aptly named Henry
Keller), happily navigate the water, humans, and wild pack of dogs. And
of course, seeing all of our Aussies having an absolute
blast. After the water activities, the humans got together at
the Half Moon Bay Brewery Company for platters of fish tacos, fish and
chips, and hand-crafted beer. No one wants to wait a whole
year to do it again, but a year with our Aussies also goes by fast!
