Fox Terrier Fun Day!

We had a great time at the annual Fox Terrier Fun Day!  It is the big fundraiser for for the Fox Terrier Rescue - as always - it was a FUN day and the organisers put so much work into making it a wonderful success.  D thinks this photo sums up the way both of us enjoyed the day:

Sally spent the time in between events in the car - she went into her 'dressing room' at every opportunity and only left when the humans wanted her to participate in the ring!  The only time she came out willingly was when the Slowest Sausage Eating competition was on.  I on the other hand, enjoyed myself tremendously!  It was non stop - I was really happy - I would not stop barking.  There were so many Smooth and Wire pals - I just had to let them know I was happy to be there and wanted to play!

Sally watching from her room...

There were a lot of fun groups - we entered a few and I won 4th Best Rescue!  I will not pose for my publicity shot....sorry

Sally got 2nd Prettiest Girl and we won Happy Families.  Which we were really honoured and thankful to be part of the day.  There were so many great dogs and people there - it was so hard for the judges!  In my opinion all the dogs there were red rosette winners - we were all well behaved and strutted our stuff.

D put together a slide show of some of the photos on the day - she took a lot!  So you can see the slideshow or go to Flickr and see all of that Fox Terrier madness.  

Sally was disqualified from the Slowest Sausage eating competition though - the shame the shame!  But as they were putting down the sausages - Sally ate her neighbours' sausage and then ate her own - and this was before they even started the stopwatch!  

Sally looking somewhat bemused at the whole affair...

I am ready for my close up, Mr De Mille....

We were lucky with the weather too!  Although it did rain - the rain came and went - and we could hold an event in between - and the real heavy rain started when the day was over.  So the Fox Terrier charm also worked on the clouds..

We also met some new girls in Rescue - they will be on the Rescue web site soon - but they had a nice day out and lots of people wanted to take them home on the day - we are sure there will be a line of people wanting to be a forever home for these sweeties...



and another Poppy...

The kind person holding them is Jane - we only meet her and her family on Fun Day - their boy George has been diagnosed with Pancreatitis just like me! - poor guy - we know with the love of his family he will get better soon and be fighting fit for the next fun day!

It was such a lovely day and we always enjoy ourselves so much - we can't thank enough the people that make it happen - and all the wonderful families that come and make it such a special day.  

Lots of licks

  11. Sally and Paddy and YourFamily. Hello and thanks! We were so happy to see that you dropped by our blog ... it has been so long since we've been around much. But we think of you so often. INCLUDING when Moma drinks from her I <3 Milu mug. AND when she eats ice cream from it. In your honor, next time we eat soft serve ice cream, we'll have a few extra licks for you two.

    Love you so much
