- I’d like to share the words our first president, Karen Erickson, wrote in her first message to the club:
- “Welcome to our newly formed Bernese Mountain Dog Club! Perhaps the word which most expresses what this club means
- to me is “WELCOME.” You are welcome to join in with us, you are welcome to your opinion, you are welcome to ask questions,
- you are welcome to a job within the group, and you are welcome to share your admiration of the breed. We have come together
- as a group of individuals who want to learn more about the Bernese Mountain Dog while having FUN.”
- (Berner Beat Volume 1, Issue 1, June 2, 1996)
Karen’s words are my wish for us all as well. So, let’s learn all we can about our breed, do all we can to improve our breed, become the stewards and protectors of our breed, and have fun and enjoy our dogs and our human friends! WELCOME to the Bernese Mountain Dog Club of Northern California, and thanks for being involved!
