We Need Your Good Stuff
2002 BTCA Somewhat Silent Auction

Yep, it's getting to be that time of year! The BTCA will sponsor a (somewhat) Silent Auction at the National Specialty Awards Banquet this summer in Long Beach. We're looking for one-of-a-kind "big ticket" items so our avid auctioneers can once again make fools of themselves for the sake of our great breed. And we need lots and lots of Border art, memorabilia, dog supplies, toys, and plain old-fashioned goodies for the Silent Auction.

Last year's auction in St. Louis set a new standard (over $10,000) and we're determined to bring in even more loot for our beloved BT's. So please start collecting items to donate to the event. Nothing is too big or too small, too silly or too staid. Donated items can be taken to the Specialty or mailed directly to Brenda Werbelow. Please open your hearts and your checkbooks. With your help and generosity we can all make sure this year's event will go down in BTCA history ... only please, please, please - NO FUR STOLES!

We have the opportunity to offer some clinics on Tuesday, June 18, but we will need a minimum number or people signed up in order to offer them. We have a Board Cetified Ophthalmologist who will do an eye CERF clinic from 1-6 pm and a Board Certified Cardiologist to do heart CERF exams from 9-3. If you are interested in either or both of these clinics, please email Sandra Tool, and let her know the number of dogs you are interested in having tested. Prices are not yet firm, but are expected to be $25/dog for each test.

Also, it there is sufficient interest we will offer Avid microchipping. Again, notify Sandra if interested.

Again, we will not be able to offer any of these services if we do not have enough dogs signed up. Please let Sandra know as soon as possible so we can lock these busy vets in.
