Potomac Valley Samoyed Club: Cherry Blossom Walk

Imagine our delight when we arrived at our annual Cherry Blossom Walk and discovered the Potomac Valley Samoyed Club would be featured in a short documentary film.

James Swartz and Todd Kimes, American University Film Students, walked with us and did a terrific job capturing what it’s like to be us.

Two paws up for James and Todd!

For this project, we had to choose a unique and interesting cultural group in the Washington, DC area and create a piece of art that describes the group. Todd and I chose to create a short video documentary on the PVSC Cherry Blossom Festival Walk.  -James Swartz

PVSC Pups on Parade

On Saturday I joined twenty other Samoyeds for a walk around the Tidal Basin with stops at the Jefferson Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial. The colder than usual spring has delayed the cherry blossoms, but my friends and I made up for it.  I heard one woman say “Forget the blossoms. Forget the monuments. These beautiful dogs have made our trip!” Happy to oblige.
