This year’s Kennel Blue Berry weekend was again put to the campground on Thurø .
We were four families who had rented a cottage from Friday to Sunday August 21-23. , and two families who came to visit on Saturdays.
Jorgen had taken Friday of, so with the car packed we went to Fyn at noon. Before we headed for Thurø , we drove to the " Landmejeriet Sinai " and provided us with cheese - and we had lunch in Svanninge Hills, where we could also go for a walk with the dogs.
We only had Maise (K -litter ), Alonso (L -litter ) and Snowy (P -litter ) with us. Tiffany was on show in Sweden with Herdis – and did very well, by the way!.
When we got to the campground Bodil, Einar, Christina, Michael and Nanna (Q -litter) had already arrived, and there was great joy. Lis and Lars Bo with their dogs Toddi (L -litter) and Nuller (P -litter) arrived shortly after.
After being "moved into" the cottages we had the big tent up. The tent is a gathering place for all our meals.
When Rie, Søren and Nessa (N -litter) had arrived we all had dinner and enjoyed ourselves.
Saturday morning Anne came with Jake (P -litter) and Jette, Marie and three “grandchildren" and their OES Ziva (after our Neo from the O- litter).
After eating breakfast there was time for some grooming, while others took a walk or went down to the beach to take a swim. 10.30 we drove down to the harbor at Thurø and took the veteran ferry Helge to Svendborg. It was a lovely boat trip in the waters of Southern Fyn in brilliant sunshine and no wind.
On arrival in Svendborg we walked through the pedestrian streets – though most of the time we stood still and talked with many people about the dogs, which enjoyed being stroked.
After eating lunch, where all the dogs rested nicely below the tables, we went back down to the harbor and the ferry back to Thurø. The dogs behaved very nicely on board. Again there was talking and applauded.
