Bernese Mountain Dog Specialty Coming Up!

Alpen Schatz will be travelling to Louisville, Kentucky in May 2007, with our beloved Berner pups, Schlappi and Smokie Bear, in attendance. We will be participating in all of the excitement which the annual Bernese Mountain Dog Specialty brings every year!

We have been participating in the Specialty since 2003 and always try to bring the Bernese World the most special international treasures that we can find.

This year, we have many new surprises. Firstly and foremost we will be bringing the very first Swiss yodeling and dancing Murmeltier (or Marmots) ever seen in the US! Newly settled in the Alps, these little creatures have been making European people and their pets smile with their cute antics.

Next, of course, we will have our beautiful original, handcrafted Swiss dog collars and carting harnesses, with which we started our business over 5 years ago. it is the week of the Kentucky Derby we have a special surprise for all of our patrons and friends. Our latest discovery: Parisian Raffia Sun Hats. These hats are decadently large, functional and can be formed into a multitude of styles, making any face look like Audrey Hepburn at the races : )
Only $75 while supplies last...

More later, after the specialty...but if you get a chance to visit us in will see some of THE BEST Bernsese Mountain Dogs and their breeders in action!!!

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Mary Dawn, Schlappi & Smokie Bear (Arff! Arff!)

European Adventure Spring 2007

For our latest European trip, we began in Munich (where I once lived), then drove to beautiful Salzburg for the Alpine Fashion Show. Then a little bit of R&R - off to Klosters/Davos Switzerland for some true Alpine skiing. Then back to Austria and Munich and then home...
Someday, I would like to take Schlappi and Smokie Bear along, too, to see the homeland of their forefathers. Enjoy!
