Join us in 2014 at one of the most beautiful places in the United States and at one of the most breathtaking times of the year - Western North Carolina in late October/early November. The leaves will be at their peak color in brilliant shades of gold, just like our Goldens. The rainy season will be over and blue, sunny skies will abound with cool temperatures.

Asheville, NC offers an eclectic mix of activities and restaurants. Whether your interest is communing with nature in one of the national forests or perusing art galleries, there is something for everyone. The restaurants offer the same eclectic mix from fine dining to the casual cafe. Asheville also is one of the most dog friendly cities on the East Coast. Well behaved dogs are allowed in most restaurants where there is outside seating.

Be sure to mark your calendar for the 2014 GRCA National Specialty being held October 24th - November 1st in Asheville/Fletcher, North Carolina. Information will continue to be posted, so please check back often. asheville pictures

WC/WCX will start at 8am NOT 9am
