Showing Puppy Love at Brightwood

Downsizing from a family home can be an emotional process. The prospect of downsizing without a cherished family pet makes it more so.

“I wouldn’t have been interested in a community where I couldn’t bring my dog,” says Gay Sachse, a resident of Brightwood in Lutherville. Many of the retirement communities she toured have limits on the size and number of pets;  Brightwood was appealing to Mrs. Sachse in part because there are no such restrictions.

As a matter of fact, the staff at Brightwood are as devoted to the community’s pets as they are to its home owners.

30 Competition categories included best in the small and large breed classes, an agility competition, best costume and of course best in show.  The event was a good reason for generations to gather, and dogs of all sizes and ages enjoyed homemade vegan biscuits fresh from the Brightwood kitchen. The people enjoyed their treats as well.
