Welcome, Woody-- sincere sympathy on the loss of your wife.
Your Pom has some prodigious fangs. Oh, wait...!
Best luck getting set up. If you wanted to drop by Dash Point on September 23 this fall
(you can park your car in the overflow parking lot for $5 a day, I believe) you can partake of the SAG (1st ever), Seattle Area Gathering, and tour the open house of fiberglass rigs and after 2 PM let Pom enter the dog events (a parade, costume display, tricks--prizes awarded)...and maybe share in a potluck meal with us. We have 7 or 8 rigs attending and some walk-ins as well. Since you're in Washington and all...
Reglardless, welcome to FGRV and I hope you find the right egg for you!
