Tell us a little about you and your dog (name, breed, temperament & any training your dog has completed, etc)

Dolly is a beautiful, mellow yellow lab who we bought from a breeder in Oregon City. I found her online and wanted to rescue her from a life of breeding (she had 4 litters in 4 years). Now she is treated like the princess she deserves to be, is well trained and behaved (unless you have a chukker with a tennis ball) and then she will forget her good manners!

What types of events would you like to participate in as a member of Bend Canine Friends?

I can't do any strenuous hikes but Gary can handle all the Sisters and Smith Rock and took our former lab Charlie on overnights on South Sisters. I just walked the Dry Canyon in Redmond with Dolly and two other friends and enjoy leisurely walks but love to get off trail so we can take her off leash.

I'm Gale Blanchard, my partner is Gary Metternich and we live in Redmond at The Greens since June. We have a mellow, sweet yellow lab, Dolly who just had her 5th bd on the 13th. We're both retired and still very active.
