Cavalier Club Gathers on Devils Lake

The Dog Days of Summer Greet Club Members

Nearly thirty members of the Oregon Trail Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club were hosted by Jack and Mary Graff on the shores of Devils Lake.  Guests in attendance came from as far away as Seattle Washington and Peterborough, Cambridgeshire in the United Kingdom.  Dogs outnumbered humans and a good time was had by all on what turned out to be a beautiful day on the lake.

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a small breed of Spaniel-type dog, and is classed as a Toy dog by most Kennel Clubs. It is one of the most popular breeds in the United Kingdom. Since 2000, it has been growing in popularity in the United States. It is a smaller breed of Spaniel, and Cavalier adults are often the same size as adolescent dogs of other spaniel breeds. It has a silky coat and commonly an undocked tail. The breed standard recognizes four colours (Blenheim, Tricolour [black/white/tan], Black and Tan, and Ruby). The breed is generally friendly, affectionate and good with both children and other animals.

The Oregon Trail Cavalier Club mission is to preserve, protect and carefully promote Cavaliers, having accepted the responsibility for the future of the breed within the state of Oregon.  You can view our photo album of the event or view the photos from the club site.

Potluck a Success

Fun Was Had By All; Despite Soggy Skies

Some sixty-five residents of Devils Lake came out Saturday, August 7th for the Second Annual Potluck on the Point.

Attendees spent the evening visiting with their neighbors while enjoying great food.  Several party goers were heard to say that what made it really fun was the ability to socialize with those you already knew as well as having the chance to make new acquaintances.   Every shore of the lake was represented!  Our friends at the Devils Lake Water Improvement District joined in with our Lake Manager and our Board Chair and another Board member in attendance.

Mother Nature tried her best to interfere offering up the first rain of the summer.  These were seasoned lake residents who didn’t let the dampness spoil their evening.  Not one person had enough sense to come in out of the rain.  Visit our photo album to get a little taste of the event.    The consensus was that the Potluck should continue and to that end we have selected the first Saturday in August every year. So mark your calendar for August 6th, 2011 and plan on a fun evening.

We still trying to locate the owner of a few serving utensils so take a look at this photo and email me if you’re the owner of anything shown. If you have any ideas on more ways we can get our community together to enjoy our mutual company let us know and we’ll do what we can to promote it.
