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
