Yep, we went to the 3rd Fox Terrier Fun Walk - 24 April, 2010. We met at Brighton Marina - and walked the Undercliff walk. Not sure how it happened by D and J1 organised the sunshine too! It was a beautiful day and we were all up for a walk!
Here is a video of the line-up (we were missing a few Irish terriers and fox terriers in this clip) - there were a lot of dogs - we tried to take count and came up with these numbers: 17 Wire Fox Terriers, 1 Smooth Fox Terrier, 5 Welsh terriers, 3 Irish Terriers, and one Airedale
You will notice in the video that one Wire is more vocal than the others - yep, that was DOUGLAS! His family joined us - he is looking wonderful - and he is in fine voice too!
Here are some more photos of the line up - but we needed the panoramic function on the camera - as it was a long line up!
There were so many wonderful doggies and people. Our official photographer was Blue! She walked me for a bit - I was a better girl this time and didn't pull too much.
We also got to see Jackson again! (here he is trying to sneak some ice cream from Blue)
We know he hasn't been well lately and we keep sending him lots of terrier vibes - he enjoyed himself on the day and was a very gracious host!
There were a lot of doggies - we stopped at the Cafe and we all went to the beach to play. There were 10 terriers off lead playing in the water and wandering around - and no problems! Not even one argument - everyone was on their best behaviour!
Reynard and his boots...
A little girl named Poppy - she was rehomed in November 2009 - it was lovely seeing her and her lovely family!
And here is a rescue from the RSPCA - sweet little Billy...
We then carried on to Rottingdean and up and over the cliffs back to the Marina. Paddy and I were flagging - Paddy has had back problems and we weren't sure he was going to be up for the walk. But with true Terrier tenacity we kept going....
(Do you like my new orange collar? My Nonna sent it to me - Thank you Nonna - Baci Baci Kisses!)
But Paddy was very poopy by the end of it - here he is taking a break - look how long his tongue is!!!
Well we made it back to the Marina and had a well earned lunch! Just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to Jackson's family who helped arrange a lovely day, to Blue for being our photographer and of course all the doggies and people that attended and made it a perfect day!
There will be more photos on the Fox Terrier Rescue UK site shortly....when D gets her act together....
Lots of licks
PS We had a lovely goody bag - but ours has been taken apart already! Biscuits eaten (Thank you J1 and Dogs Dog bakery!) - but here is a picture of the non edible parts....
