The pups – and people – bought to take a look at some very cool vehicles. There was an unbelievable show of latest European supercars from makers like Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porche and BMW. Plus a variety of classic American vehicles, traditional Stingrays, Corvairs, Mustangs, a WWII-era Jeep, and even a Pierce-Arrow from the 1920s.

The spotlight of the day, although, was truly a shock for certainly one of our very devoted volunteer pet raisers, Caryl Swain.
