GCH CH Classical’s My Turn CGC
“Are you going to Scarborough Fair?” asks the anthem of the Summer of Love. That was the summer of 1967 when the Flower Children flocked to the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco. Today whenever we hear that call, we think of a long weekend in Scarborough ME for four shows with the Vacationland Dog Club and the York County Kennel Club of Maine.
