Everyone who attended the Pool Party at the Kurnit's had a great time! Although the traffic reports may have kept some folks off the Turnpikes, those who made it enjoyed the beautifully landsaped back yard and pool, not to mention Joe's famous sausage and peppers, Linda's potato salad and Peggy's surprise - a huge ice cream cake personalized with "Delaware Valley Bullmastiff Club." Thanks to everyone who made this meeting special.
Thanks to everyone who came out to our AKC Sanctioned Plan B Match at Smith's Woods Park in Burlington County. The weather was cloudy and cool - perfect for bullies.
