  • WANT TO HAVE A SENIOR MOMENT??? Recognize your Ancient Mariner, all PWDs that turned 15 in 2019. Reaching a ripe old age is a very special achievement.  If you have a Portuguese Water Dog who turned 15 in 2019, we want to honor him or her. The recognition will include an, embroidered, personalized hand towel to be presented to the owners at our Annual Meeting.  This will be the start of an on-going club tradition. If your dog is eligible and you would like to participate, please send your dog’s call name, birthdate, and a photo to Carol Irving.If your special PWD has since gone on to The Rainbow Bridge, you will still receive a personalized towel.  If you would like to participate but are unable to attend the meeting, please note that when you register.

Submit Photos of your PWDs for our Slideshow! “Our PWDs” Slideshow will be up on the screen as you arrive, and is a wonderful way to show off your doggies in normal, fun, non-competitive pursuits and antics.  Please email photos, of your PWDs (with their names) to Carol Irving by February 9.
