More Fox Terrier Fun!

Hello everybloggie,

Well as you know - it was the First Fox Terrier Fun Walk on Sunday (Fox terrier Rescue).  C couldn't make it - so D had to drive to Brighton on her own.  Well, she hasn't been on the motorways (highways) for months - so she was a little anxious - but minus a little detour where we started heading North as opposed to South - we made it safe and sound.  Stanmer Park was beautiful - we parked and started walking and saw more Fox Terriers like us!

We met at the cafe and I was well behaved - but Paddy started barking at his new found friends - they replied and then the lady from the cafe came out and asked if we could stand on the opposite side of the street - Geez!!  Some People!  We were just chatting.

Well, D handed Paddy to a nice lady named Diane and he led the charge - thankfully a nice lady named Annette was guiding the group - D wasn't really prepared and was a little concerned she would lead everyone the wrong way and we might never make it out!  So well done Annette - she made the walk go smoothly.  

We met so many lovely WFTs and their owners - and we got to meet JACKSON!  I was too shy to ask for his pawtograph - but we got to walk together and we sat on the grass chatting afterwards. He was keeping an eye on the Goody box - making sure no one stole anything... He is lovely...

Paddy and I had lots of fun and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves..
Here is Rosa standing up to make herself heard...

This is Max at the cafe - he was raring to go too..

Here is Hector getting some attention from a young walker (we love his stickie uppy ears)

Here is Tinkerbell and 2 walkers having an in depth discussion about something...

Here is Paddy (the other Paddy) meeting Seamus - one of the Irish Terriers that joined us.

Kelly made it at the last minute - poor thing - she had a dodgy tummy - but she was a big brave girl and kept up with all of us 

We would of had more pictures - but sadly D isn't good at multi tasking - walking and photo taking are not her strong points sadly - so we have missed some dogs out!

But here is a group shot - there were about 15 Fox terriers and 4 other furry friends - we didn't bother to count the humans!  

We don't know how to big up the photo - but if D figures it out - she will amend it later.  But everyone had a great time - and we are planning to organise another one soon.  Jackson and J1 did a great job and this wouldn't of happened without them and a big thank you to them for the Goody bags!  Those biscuits were delicious - Paddy liked it too - but he has been known to eat dirt - so we are not taking his opinion too highly.  Here is me wanting D to open the bag up quickly!

There are no after shots - as the biscuits did a disappearing act in my mouth...I did share with Paddy.  Thank you to the Dog Dog's Bakery!

Well we were so pooped when we got home - we slept the afternoon away - we were so happy to meet all the other Fox Terriers and hope we can get another one together soon.  

Lots of licks
Sally and Paddy

  7. You sure had a great time. So nice you got to meet up with Jackson. These walks and meetups are very good for us pooches. The cafe person was rude...dogs should be able to converse without being sent to the other side of the street!
