As 2017 comes to a close, we look back with excitement
for the 18 new teams created this year,
for the people we've met and the friends we've made,
and with gratitude to all who have supported us.

Time slowly flows back at the same time it rushes forward
We relive all that is good . . . all that is worthy
You, the donors and volunteers
Swim in the memory of all that is good . . . all that is worthy

We humbly thank you at Next Step
For your care and compassion for all that we do

Our 2017 Graduation Celebration

We are extremely grateful to the Brown Family for hosting our event
and to all of you who attended or participated in any way.
We had a record number of graduating teams plus trainers, puppy raisers
(both locally and from GDA), past graduates and teams, family and friends.
As you can see from the pictures above, we had a beautiful table full of sandwiches, drinks, and desserts.  There were special mortar boards made for the graduating dogs, and Brownie Troop 4505 who baked homemade goodies for our dogs and handed out programs for our event.  It was a very special day, indeed.
