Great Pyrenees National Specialty in Ohio - Any one going?
« on: March 03, 2008, 06:01:00 pm »
Just wondering if any one else is going to the Great Pyrenees Nationals this year in Westlake Ohio (near Cleveland) at the end of April.

I'm afraid I don't know what exactly the Great Pyrenees National Specialty is? Is it a dog show exclusively for Pyrs?

It will take us two long days to get there.  Cirra will be receiving her three Versatility Titles from the Great Pyrenees Club of America.  Well, I should say that we will be receiving them.  Awards are given out at the banquet and dogs are not allowed.  Not really fair to Cirra since - one of her "Additional Versatility Activities" was dining.  We are very proud of her!!!  Cirra is entered in Rally Novice and Novice Obedience however they are first thing in the morning our first day there.  She is not a morning dog!!!  And will be thrilled that these activties will be during her morning brunch time.

Oh, I am soooooo envious!  I hope that you all have a wonderful time and that you take tons of pics!  Please, please??  I'm on cloud nine at a dog show with "just" 20 or 30 Pyrs.   ;)  ;D  Someday I'll make it to a Nat'l Specialty and I can't wait!

A pic from the rescue parade...we're the 5th & 6th from the left

I believe someone said there were over 400 pyrs there...it was fun, the dogs loved the hotel room.  They thought they were rock stars, lol
