WOW!! Twenty-six prizes were won by those who attended the VKC Fourth Anniversary Party. Some prizes were awarded to those who entered a drawing while other prizes were awarded simply to those who showed up to join in the fun. The value of all the prizes given away during the celebration is more than L$100,000!

W O W ! ! ! Also winners were all those who attended Solcar Amat's special classes on how to use SL gestures to combine natural language, avatar movements, and VKC commands to create stunning or amusing tricks for the VKC dogs, tricks that use none of the dog's memory. If you missed the classes, drop by any of the VKC Dog Parks to pick up your free "Gesture Kit" courtesy of Solcar. In this kit, you will find a summary of the class with pictures of each step to creating your own custom gestures to use with your VKC dogs. The kit also contains a blank gesture to use as a template for your own gestures, plus a few gestures Solcar created especially for the VKC Fourth Anniversary Celebration.

Oh! Did I mention that the Anniversary Celebration also marked the grand opening of the shops at Hewes and Gold Rush Ranch? N0? Do drop by and see the cool accessories, toys, houses, beds, baths, and beyond specially made for VKC dogs.

It is not too late to pick up your copy of the wonderful commemorative book about the history of the first four years of the VKC, a book lovingly crafted by Blu Heron and available for free in any VKC Dog Park.

Wow! Wow!! Wow!!! W00T!
