GPCSO Event Announcements

Keeping You and Your Pyr in Touch With Your Club

About This Service

GPCSO has a varied schedule of events throughout the year. This e-zine provides the latest and most current news about these events. It is our way of keeping you informed so there's no need to ever miss a GPCSO event again.

GPCSO Event Reminders are available to Club Members and the general public alike, as a service from the Great Pyrenees Club of Southern Ontario.

If you like this e-zine, please do a friend and us a big favor and "pay it forward."

If a friend DID forward this to you and if you like what you read, please subscribe by visiting the Ezine Subscription page on our site.


Here is your reminder of Club events occurring in the next two weeks.

Coming Soon....

Annual Spring Pot Luck Lunch and Dog Walk

WHERE: Carol Graham’s home #5039 4th Line, R. R. #2, Acton, Ontario (519) 853-3005

WHEN: Sunday, May 30, 2010

WHY: Just because!! It is spring and the perfect time to get outdoors, meet old friends, renew acquaintances and make new friends. Of course owners get to do this as well.

WHO: ALL GREAT PYRENEES are welcome. Their owners can come if they want. Great Pyrenees are also very hospitable and welcome any other dogs who wish to attend. So don't be shy. Come join the fun and meet folks from the GPCSO.

TIME: 12:00 P.M. (Noon)

Bring your favourite food for sharing, don your hiking boots and come out for some socialization. As it has not been a hard winter (unlike times in the past) we are hopeful that we will have gorgeous weather – not too hot or too cold, the ground will be mud free and there will be no flies or mosquitoes.

Canine Good Neighbour Testing...

while you attend our Annual Spring Pot Luck Lunch and Dog Walk.

Is your dog a Good Neighbour? Do you know? Well, this is your chance to find out.

The C.K.C. allows for testing of all dogs (both pure bred and non-purebred) as a good neighbour. This test is devised to assess your relationship with your dog and your ability to control him or her. IT IS NOT A COMPETITION!! Your dog is evaluated on its ability to perform basic exercises and to demonstrate good manners while out in public.

We will be holding a Canine Good Neighbour Testing for all interested parties at our Annual Walk. The test takes approximately 10 - 15 minutes per dog. The Testing will take place starting at 10:00 a.m., prior to the luncheon. The cost is $20.00 per dog. (Cash or cheques only- payable at the time of testing) Dogs passing the test receive a Certificate from the C.K.C.

In addition, you may want to purchase a Badge of Merit ($5.00) or a Canine Good Neighbour Tag for your dog’s collar ($12.50). Both will be available for purchase after completion of testing.

Here's what else is going on.

It's the Annual Great Pyrenees Club Garage sale

- Saturday, June 5, 2010 983 Wales Avenue, Mississauga, Ontario

This is a fund raising event for the Club so come on out and support our efforts. How can you help? Why not clear out all of those "treasures" from the hidden recesses in your basement and garage. We can use the stuff and you can use the extra room! What a deal! All we ask is that it is good quality stuff.

Do you have large items? You can drop them off at the address above. For small items you can drop them off at the Spring Walk.

Every penny we raise supports our club.

London Canine Show

To be held at Tillsonburg, Ontario October 16, and 17 - in conjunction with our 75th Anniversary of showing Great Pyrs in Canada. You can bet that GPCSO will be there.
