Membership Meetings:

*** Sunday, May 20, 2018, 2PM:

Drafting Workshop.

The Bernese Mountain Dogs were bred to work - to help their owners with hauling those large milk containers down the Alps in carts.  And these guys love to pull -----

Here is some information on drafting (carting)

Sue Sanvido will lead us in a hands on drafting clinic. For those who have carts and harnesses, please plan to bring them along.
The meeting will be held at Sue’s residence:
        27170 Bagley Road
        Olmsted Township , Ohio  44138-1062
There will be no pot luck dinner at this meeting.  Bottled water, soft drinks and snacks will be provided.
Hope to see you there to learn more about the job our Berners were bred to do. It will be a fun afternoon.



“SAVE THE DATE”….Wednesday, May 30th is “WOOF WEDNESDAY” at Debonne Vineyards in Madison , Ohio. Bring your dog out after 5 pm and enjoy an evening of live music and wine with your Best Friend!  $.50 cents from every wine and beer glass, $1 from every bottle of wine purchased in house and 10% of all food sales from the outdoor grill will be donated by Debonne to our NCBMDCO Rescue fund. Live music will be entertaining you from 6:30-10:30 p.m. and dog treats will be on hand! Last year we received more than $200. I know we can do better than that this year!

Our hearts go out to Sherry, who had adopted a very special lady, Piper.  After all this little girl had been through, she finally was able to relax and find peace in her forever home with Sherry and her crew.  At 12 years old, Piper could no longer hang on and peacefully went over the Rainbow Bridge .

RIP, sweet Piper
