The PWDCA supported entry weekend hosted by the Pacific NW Portuguese Water Dog Club on August 23-24th was a huge success! By that we mean lots of dogs, lots of people and lots of smiling faces. The weather was a little warm on Saturday, but rain held off on Sunday until we were finished.
On Saturday, Mount Rainier Working Dog Club held its first “point” show. There were Meet the Breed booths for nearly every working group breed located around the rings. Ours, masterminded – and manned – by Renee Smith was deemed Best Breed Booth. Great job, Renee! Other members also helped man the booth – among them Suzie Aarts and Laird Philbrick, one of our club’s founding members. Sunday saw our sweepstakes, with judge Danik Dancause graciously flying in to officiate. A lunch and club drawing wrapped up the event.
Following are the show results (complete info is available on www.barayevents.com):
