10 July 2012

That's the day the Picardies had their picnic!!

On June 9,  we awoke to heavy grey skies.  Rain poured out of the sky - it came down in buckets!  Oh no!  We just figured despite the great RSVPs, no one would want to stand out in the rain!  Half-hearted, we packed up the SUV and heading to Hanover....

As we pulled into Brighthope, we were so pleased to see people and Blues!  What can I say about our Brighthope family?  We sure are a tough bunch!!  Rain or shine...

As quickly as possible, we prepped the 'Q, served the salads and just kept watching families arrive from all over Ontario and even the fabulous June (sister of Coullah) from Michigan.  We even had another family drive from up from Michigan - just to check out Brighthope Kennels!  I think we all did a great job talking about our wonderful dogs - even though the breed doesn't really need a hard sell, so to speak!!

The day was an outstanding success!  Old friends reunited, new friends made and once again a great day in the park for the Blues!!  Thanks to everyone who attended!!!!   Enjoy the first picnic post!!  More picture to come!
