Lower Mainland Dog Fanciers of British Columbia Kennel Club, October 25 - 28, 2007

The French Bulldog Fanciers of Canada’s Nationals was held on October 25, 2007 in conjunction with the Lower Mainland Dog Fanciers of British Columbia’s Group Specialties and All Breed Shows (October 25 - 28, 2007).  We traveled via van over 4,800 miles round trip from Mt. Vernon, IL to Abbottsford, British Columbia, Canada.  Luckily the snow held off in the mountains (Montana and Idaho!) and we got to see some of the most beautiful country in the USA.  Trees turning magnificent shades of gold and reds with the snow capped mountains in the background served to provide breathtaking scenery.  With 4 dogs, Kate, Gabrielle, Jacob, and Frank we made the journey and experienced the “good life” of hotel living and fast food!  Needless to say, we had a wonderful time with good friends Louisa and Jorge.  Frank and Kate completing their CKC championships in one weekend was well worth the trip.  Frank’s wins as Best Puppy in Show (3 times!) made the trip truly memorable.
