Benjy went to his family reunion!!!
Benjy just turned 8 months. We got him from his breeders about 4 months ago. We haven't seen them since then but have kept in contact through emails. We sometimes have questions. They love updates and pictures because he is like one of their children to them.
His breeders emailed us and let us know they would be at a dog show and they would love for us to bring Benjy and get reaquainted. So we got to see them again. And Benjy got to see both his parents, a brother, and a sister again. (We had met them all before we bought Benjy.) They had an awning at the side of their RV so it was comfortable in the shade.
It was very hot at the fair grounds and I am so glad I remembered to put his stroller in the car. I bet the pavement was mighty hot for bare feet. And we brought water and a bowl. Naturally, we bought him a toy at one of the vendors. You put food in it and he has to figure out how to get it out.
They had dock diving, something I never would have thought of. Just the bigger dogs were doing it.
I couldn't tell if Benjy remembered any of them or not. He went right to them and was excited to see them. But he loves everyone and is always friendly.
I was wondering, has anyone else ever seen their breeder (if they got their dog at one) later in the life of the dog? Or has your dog seen his/her parents again? If so, how did it go?

PS Here is Benjy's latest picture. It is a little dark because it was a rainy day.
