It's unlikely that with all the dogs at the Premier each year there never one that has been exposed. This is just the first time someone has thought to mention it to the event committee. Any time I attend an event with hundreds (thousands?) of dogs and exhibitors I take into account that my dogs are being exposed to many things and am careful if I intend to go visit puppies or any place that might have immunocompromised dogs soon after. The message is good to know for people that brought baby puppies to the event or are going back home to puppies, but anyone who has their dogs vaccinated or titred should not freak out like everyone is on Facebook. There were no dogs *with* parvo actually at the event.
