Pinky Goes to Auction

This past week was a long and emotional end to my journey with Pinky. At the show on Wednesday Pinky and I placed 7th in my weight class which wasn’t too good at all.

We didn’t find out until the very end of the night if we made sale and it turns out, Pinky barely made it and she was one of the very last lots of the sale! I was really happy that we made it. more with Talk of the Bay...
