    Hi Chris,

    I met you a loooong time ago at the Discovery Science Center in Orange, CA with my Basset Hound, Chloe. It is good to read that you are doing so well! Chloe is now retired from Pet Therapy at CHOC, but I have a 3 year Brussels Griffon (roughie) named Gertie who is hopefully going to start making rounds at the hospital soon.

    Please put me on your mailing list and I’ll try to come catch a show when you’re in Orange County.

    Take Care,

    Heidi Campbell

    Not sure if you even remember me, think Davis circa 2002 or 2003ish… and Sacramento circa 2001…

    Anyways, just wanted to say that I’m glad to see things are going well for you! Looks like a lot has changed!

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance. I must say you’ve done a fantastic job with this. Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Chrome. Excellent Blog!

    Hey Chris! I saw your show a few days in Parker Colorado. I was blow away by what you trained your dogs to do. You have convinced my to want to get a new dog, from a shelter or pound or course, and try to train it to do the stuff you have trained your dogs to do! I was curious what kind of dogs all your dogs are because it seems you have a lot of the same kind but i forgot what kind you said they were. Thank you for all you do and how much time you have spent doing what you do. You are a great inspiration and I hope i will see you again someday!

    They are all different breeds and were adopted from pounds and shelters. Many are from the herding, terrier, or working breeds. Most are mixed as well.
