Almost the end of the day …

The sun is slowly setting and that is putting a chill in the air. We will be wrapping this up soon for today and will have around thirty dogs to run tomorrow. We will post pictures tonight of as many handlers as we could take, but we felt it was best to get the "play-by-play" up in a timely manner so you could keep up with your favorite team.
