DOG OF THE YEAR--2ND FEBRUARY 2020

Once again, we are approaching the time of invites to already qualified dogs for our annual Pyrenean three course Lunch followed by a match to find the Dog of the Year, Puppy of the Year and Veteran of the Year, which is judged by a secret judge, identity not known until the day. (Not even the Committee knows so no use asking them). The Lunch is a three course sit down meal, open to all, whether your dog has qualified or not. You are very welcome to come and join this social event with friends of the Pyrenean breed. This years’ lunch will be held at Cobham Village Hall, Lushington Drive, Cobham, Surrey. KT11 2LU, the same venue as last year. Dogs may enter on the points system as in previous years if unsure please ask your committee. Arrive around 12.00p.m. for 12.30p.m sit down.

Entry is by meal ticket only, £18.00 a head, Children up to 16 half price. You don’t really need a dog qualified to come along and spend a pleasant day chatting and listening to tales that people have experienced with their dogs over the years whilst enjoying a homemade meal with wine or fruit juice if you’re driving, followed by tea/coffee. After the match for Dog of the Year there is the chance to have another Tea or Coffee and homemade cake before setting of home, usually around 4p.m.

All who have qualified to compete will receive an invitation letter later in the year, others please start counting your points as you may be able to challenge.
