Last Saturday (28th June) the girls and I went to an event called Pups at the Pub. I left home just after 10.30am. We got home just after 6.30pm, so a long day out for us.
When we got there dead on 11am the RGT (Retired Greyhound Trust) people hadn’t arrived and neither had my friend. As I was getting the girls out of the car my friend arrived. It was already hot and sunny, but luckily there was a cooling breeze. We had a quick wonder and then found a shady spot under a tree. When the RGT people turned up they obviously had enough helpers, so my friend and I seemed to be the ones hanging on to everyone’s dogs Luckily they all got on. They set up a tent type thingy, but there wasn’t enough room for us and our dogs, but as it had turned hazy we sat at a picnic table right next to them. Then the sun came out and it was too hot, so we moved back to our shady spot under the tree. We had various people come up to fuss our dogs, which was nice. Polly got a bit anxious when other breeds started to show up, but the more that came the less she seemed bothered. Think she was overloaded really. We decided a bit before 1pm to go back to my friends and then go back to the event for 3pm, so my friend could enter her Pointer into the Best Rescue Class.
Once back at my friends the dogs all chilled out laying in the garden. We sat in the garden and had the lunch we had packed up and we enjoyed a very cooling ginger beer. We decided to leave her two Greys and Polly at hers and just go back with Sofia (the Pointer) and Honey.
When we got back there were a lot more people and a lot more dogs, but Honey didn’t mind that and I think she thought the people were all there to fuss her, which a fair few did
My friends Pointer Sofia got 1st in the Best Rescued Dog class and came 3rd in Best in Show.
Sofia was rescued from Spain (her collar is the Spanish flag) and she's named after the previous Queen of Spain. She is extremely timid. My friend has done wonders with her and to get her round the event was a huge step forward.
When I got home I gave the girls their dinner, which was late for them, but they ate it all up and then slept the evening away. I turned in soon after 10pm and had a good nights sleep:)
We hope you are having a lovely day. Remember to hug your hound/s.
