by Barb Bowes

The PDGPC Fall "Walk-In-The-Woods" has been scheduled for Saturday, October 1st at Beltzville State Park, in Lehighton, PA. It will be held at Pavilion #1, rain or shine. This is a beautiful Park with scenic walking trails.

The "Walk" will be held from Noon until 5:00 PM. Come on out for a really good time, and get together with fellow Club members and Pyr owners.

NOTE that this event is now combined with Fun Day and will include a brief Membership Meeting at 1 pm. We hope this event will be a rousing success!

Bring a picnic lunch for yourself. If you would like to bring a salad or dessert to share that would be welcome, but it is not reqired. We want to see YOU and your Pyr(s)!

All dogs should be current on shots and must be leashed, with 6 foot maximum length leashes (no Flexi-Leads).
