On October 27, 2007 The Three Dog Bakery located at 430 King Street in Charleston, SC sponsored a reunion for Shih Tzu's rescued from a Goose Creek home in 2006. The event was a success thanks to the huge efforts put forth by the stores owner Dustin Guthrie, Pearl Sutton (the Executive director of the Doc Williams SPCA), and Nichole Evans. As many as 20 Shih Tzu's and their owners arrived for the reunion.
The dogs seemed to remember each other quite well even after a year of separation as they came nose to nose and sniffed each other. The Three Dog Bakery had a nice itinerary set up which included sniff and be sniffed, a store to store do friendly trick or treat, a cake cutting for the dogs, bobbing for bagels, and of course, pictures, pictures, and more pictures! All and all, I think that everyone had a great time, I know my wife and I had a nice warm feeling inside that we had been a part of this wonderful occasion.

These are some picture that I took during the Maritime festival in downtown Charleston. This was my first time seeing these majestic beauties of the sea and I have to say, it is certainly a sight to see! Some of the ships at the event were the Gloria, The Prince William, the Pride of Baltimore 2, the Picton Castle and the Spirit of South Carolina. I only wish that I could have been there when they set sail, I'll bet that would have made some great pictures. Here is a link to the column done about the tall ships by our local newspaper: http://web.charleston.net/news/2007/may/17/cover/

Hoards of people waited in line to tour the ships on deck, my wife and I decided that we could see the ships just fine from the shore!
