Whispy Wednesday - Say Goodbye @ 5:30

Whisp matriculates to advanced training (we call it "going off to college") on Friday.  Yes, it is hard to believe it is that time already!  It seems like just yesterday that she arrived.  Please join Whisp and her puppy friends as we say goodbye on Wednesday afternoon at 5:30!  Whisp will be there around 4 so she can get all her goodbyes in.

We are hoping the 3rd time is the charm and Whisp will graduate from college, move on to team training, and finally pair with someone that really needs her.  Although some of the Bent Oak Family are hoping she goes the way of the other two and comes home to join the family, we all wish the best for her!

Since Whisp is our 3rd puppy to raise, we will have $3 off the glass specials on Wednesday ($6 instead of the normal $9 special).
