Monthly Meetings Are Back

Our normal monthly meeting schedule resumes this month on August 9th at 6:30PM in Conference Room 5 at the Vet School. There will be a program on how cleaning chemicals can affect our dogs. More details to follow. Mark your calendars for next week!

No Meeting in July

Just as a reminder to everyone, we won’t be having our regular July meeting next week. A lot of members are traveling or gearing up for upcoming shows this month in Houston and San Antonio. We wish everyone the best of luck at the shows, and safe travels. We’ll see you in August.

June 2016 Meeting

The regular monthly meeting of the BVKC will be held at 6:30pm on Tuesday, June 14, in Rm 5 of the TAMU Vet School. Our program will be given by Board Member, Susan Fontaine, talking about new changes to AKC Obedience competition rules. Don’t miss it!

We won’t have a meeting in July, as many members will be enjoying summer vacation.

Announcement

Show Photos

If you are waiting for your photos from this year’s show, we just learned that our photographer’s home was flooded in the recent Houston storms. The packages she had ready to mail out were all destroyed and she has had to have all the photos printed again. She will get everything sent out as soon as possible, so please be patient.

April Meeting and Annual Banquet

Our April meeting will be Tuesday, April 14th. Instead of our normal meeting place, we’ll be having our annual awards banquet. There will be barbecue! We’ll meet at 6:30 PM at C&J Barbecue at 1010 Texas Ave. in Bryan.

We have a dining room reserved, and everyone goes through the line to get their own food.

We’ll be handing out awards and introducing our new officers.

In the meantime, check out this short video from our fun match after the Saturday dog show. Six-year-old Autumn Smith is showing her Shetland Sheepdog, “Pez,” first in the individual breed class and then in the herding group.
