Oh I hadn't realised it was the May bank holiday! It was the same weekend last year, but I hadn't twigged with the Sunday still being in April! Yes, that makes it even better. Paul has asked someone to cover for him that day (although no-one has volunteered yet), so he is hoping to come too. It will be lovely to see everyone again and all of those lovely briards. Woo hoo!

We will meet as usual at 11am we park behind DFS store as that parking is free if you aim for the Sands Centre postcode CA1 1JQ you'll find the gaggle of briards Smile Please can you let Caroline or I know you are coming then we know who to wait for.
Hope the weather is good to us.
See you all soon

Where is the Carlisle report & photos/videos?? Those of us that can't make these events still love to see BRIARDS (and their humans) having a good time together.

I was just coming to ask the same thing.

And is there ever any other meetups around the country?

Well Paul and I took Fin and we had a fab time. I took some photos on my phone and will try and upload them later. We had lovely weather and it was really nice to see everyone. We did a shorter walk through a park before lunch and then a longer riverside walk in the afternoon with some time for the dogs to run around off lead and swim/paddle. Fin did a bit of barking when he got there (he's not used to seeing so many bigger dogs in one place), but he soon settled down. Bria, the rescue from Spain, was there. What a lovely dog she is! In fact, they all were. Lovely to see so many briards together and to chat to their owners. We attracted lots of admiring glances and some people stopped to comment on how beautiful they were. Fin was was only sick once on the way there and slept all the way back. We all had a really enjoyable day.

From the feed back I have received all enjoyed their day out with some tired Briards at the end of it.. 15 Briards and a Yorky with their humans couldn't have asked for better weather it was lovely to meet up with friends old and new,
it was great to meet Bria the Spanish rescue Briard Sheila organised and we helped to have a new life. Lovely to see her so settled considering all the changes she has had in her life before getting her forever home with James Ruth and Barney her Briard best friend.
.All the Briards were well behaved, a bit of woofing on meeting but once on the move all settled down to be good ambassadors for our breed, there were 11 males and 4 females attracting lots of interest from passers by. With all the usual enquiries we are all used to.
Hopefully others with post pictures here for you who are not on Face book.
Looking forward to next year. Very Happy

Thank you Ruth & Brenda....great to hear of a nice turn out and that everything went so well. Odd so many more males than females.
Would like to know which one is Bria.
Hopefully there will be more photos posted. Please

She's also in the water to the left of the photo above. Here is a slightly closer view:

She is a beautiful briard with a lovely face. She is still a bit reserved, but her confidence grew during the day and she kept on having a sneaky sniff of anyone who got close when she thought they weren't looking!

P.S. We had a really nice chat with Bria's mum and dad. They have had three rescue briards now, first Ed (who can forget the tales about the wonderful Ed?!), then Barney and now Bria. Sadly, Ed is no longer with us, but Barney and Bria are a credit to their owners. Both were impeccably behaved - lovely dogs.

I know there are definitely other meet-ups in different places, but I can't think where they all are. Maybe someone else can help? I know there is a fairly regular get-together in West Wittering and there is a Fun weekend each year, isn't there - is that in Oxfordshire? And there are various shows, aren't there? Where else do people meet up?

I don't know where any of that is yet. I believe we will be in Suffolk county, I think near-ish to Newmarket (or that's the closest big town).
Now I've driven all of the UK before, but really have no idea of directions or names, etc.

Well there are lots of briards in the south-east, so I am sure there will be get-togethers close enough for you to drive to.

I want to go next year. Still would be quite a drive from where we will be, but seems worth it. So much fun.

And I love seeing all the big dogs. Our puppy is so awkward looking.

Awww they are lovely when they are a bit floppy and gangly! Yes, it's worth the drive. We are planning a move to North Wales (house going on market and serious searching for new home starts in September), so we don't know if we will be close enough next year, depending on where we end up and assuming it will have all happened by then (which, of course, it may not have). If we're too far away for our icky-sicky traveller, we'll just have to arrange a North Wales meet-up.

We call him a disaster. If he's not tripping over his feet, he's causing somebody else to trip over them.

Oh and his hair is starting to go in every direction, but only getting long over his eyes so far. And he's constantly dirty, picking up every leaf or grass or dirt he can find.
