Pupapalooza, California

16 September 2006

Having been a member of the Zim family forum for a while, and enjoyed the pictures of the lovely puppies and dogs from California, and after helping to organise the first UK Pupapalooza in Greenwich Park, Lucy decided to take a short trip over to the original Pupapalooza - a weekend-long event that celebrates (American) Cocker Spaniels and their owners. These Pupapalooza parties are timed to coincide with the Zim family's litters of puppies, so that out-of-town friends can come meet the puppies just before the pups go to their new homes.
