Welcome to the first annual Berner-Pa-Looza!! We hope you will join us for a great grillin' picnic!

The theme for the Pot Luck is Food From the Alps! The Alps, one of the great mountain range systems of Europe, stretch approximately 1,200 kilometres (750 mi) across eight Alpine countries from Austria and Slovenia in the east, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Germany, France to the west and Italy and Monaco to the south.

This gives us lots of different food to choose from! If you need inspiration, check outhttp://www.foodnetwork.com/ or http://www.myswitzerland.com/en/typically-swiss-recipes.html.

Laura has a home in the country with a big yard for the pups to play in!

Please bring a chair if you want to sit outside.

    George and Diane - sorry I didn't see your note until just now... we could use a German Chocolate Cake and some Brat condiments (mustard, etc.). If you can't bring anything, no worries. We should have plenty of food. :)

    Hello everyone!Glad to see those who are attending and hope more can make it.As Buffy said,we have a large fenced yard that has now been Bernerscaped by Hope.Hope felt compelled to add her Berner puppy touches-digging up trees,dragging out hoses,etc.If your dog has name recall,they can run around on our 5.5 acres.FYI-we have a large gas grill,a charcoal grill and 2 smokers (hot&cold) if anyone feels so compelled.I should now be in town until the Berner-Pa-Looza.Hope is so excited to be the Berner hostess for this party and wants everyone to have a dog gone good time.Do I need to have any organized dog activities or are the Berners self entertaining?If anyone wants to bring a cart for the Berners,that's perfectly fine.The Berners can aerate my field grass free of charge!I'm not a social media guru,so if you need to reach me,here is my contact info:
