Announcing The Darcy Fun(d) Match!

Darcy's good friend Tamela is organizing a Cavalier Fun Match (all Cavaliers are welcome) to raise money for the Darcy Fund. A Fun Match is just like a real dog show with a real judge but no pedigrees are required. They are a great way to see what it’s like to show a dog, learn what judges look for in the ring or just spend time with your Cavalier friends. Besides typical fun match classes—Puppy Dog, Puppy Bitch, Color Variety (1 year and up), Junior Handling (kids up to 18 years and any age dog) and Veterans (Cavaliers 7 years and up)—we’ll have contests for waggiest tail, longest ears, best trick and more, plus a Rescue parade and a raffle with lots of great prizes.

Bring a potluck dish to share and groom your dog to the nines. Winners (1st through 4th place will be awarded in each class) can be photographed with the judge. Or have your dog's picture taken just because he’s special.

Entry fees per event are $5 per dog and photos are $5. Prizes have been donated and all monies raised will be donated to the Darcy Fund, for research into causes of and treatments for chronic valve disease, also known as mitral valve disease, a serious problem in Cavaliers.

For more information email Tamela at cavalierpark@cox.net.
