Shepherd's Way

Photos from Northwest English Shepherd Gathering, 2015

The 2015 NW Gathering was hosted by Connie Debusschere at her beautiful farm in Sweet Home, Oregon. I only managed to get photos of a fraction of the participants -- there was a lot to do, beautiful scenery to enjoy, and many many friendly people & dogs to meet. Thank you Connie for organizing such a fun day!
