There is so much going on in the world at this time, I hope everyone is safe and able to take some time to spend with your dogs and family. We had a lovely Awards Day in the Park, and it was very well attended. Pat Manrique, as always, did an awesome job organizing and preparing the various awards. She will fill you in on placements later in this issue. A big thank you to Cindy Stanford for a great and very detailed grooming demonstration. Many a dog went home looking quite stellar thanks to her demo and people being able to work on their own dogs to practice what they learned. Patty Aronica made her CGC trainer debut by offering free testing to club members. It was so nice to see so many dogs pass and earn titles. Thank you to everyone who attended and supported our club.
We have a number of changes coming to our calendar of events. First, we will not be holding our Agility trial in September, but will be moving it to January. That will allow for not only allow for cooler weather, but we will be able to hold it at the Rancho Murieta Equestrian Center. Thank you to Margaret Norris and Pam Warner for making this happen. November will be our fall specialty, which will be with the Wine Country Kennel Club. We will have our specialty and Sweeps on Saturday of that weekend. Our Walking Field Trial will once again be held at Quail Point, Zamora, CA. in November. Start getting those puppies ready now, they always have such a great time in the field. Keep an eye on the Event Calendar on our website to get the specifics for all the events mentioned here.
As always, hug those dogs and stay cool!
