Photo Gallery: 10 Year Anniversary Party. July 2018

Four Paws club has been running for just over 10 years. We had a party to celebrate!

Present and past members of the club, and their dogs, were all invited. We coped with the very hot weather by using the shade of our gazebos.
There was a Rally-O course, in which to show-off your dog's obedience. We also had a Have-A-Go little agility course, just for fun. And there were home-made biscuits as a take-away gift for the dogs. For humans, there was a lovely buffet ... and a chance for people to get to know each other, and for past members to re-unite. We hope everyone enjoyed it.

A few photos to give a flavour of the event ...

Committee, helpers and trainers chatting!
– but they should be getting on with ...
image
... preparing the sumptuous spread.
There is lots to do before the party!
image
First, a brief history of Four Paws
by the chairman and a trainer (pictured).
image
Then time to make friends,
and put the world to rights ...
image
... even if you are only a human.
 
image
Others took a paw to a low agility course:
“Is she asking me to pick up that big stick?”
image
That looks like a definite “No” to the tunnel!
(which of course we respected).
image
Nothing like a loving greeting from your
owner to make a tunnel fun! ...
image
“Can I have another cuddle if I come
round the obstacle with you?”
image
Off-lead if done agility before. “OK, Owner?
There is more room if you go over the jump.”
image
This is going Very Well. “Where
next? I'm listening, my ears are all aflap.” ...
image
“Ah, no. Changed my mind. I'll head over
to that water bucket.”   Ooops!
image
Never mind. Happy celebrations
for Owner and Canine anyway.
image
“Oh, er! There is a bar in the way!
Front paws well up – I'm not hitting that.”
image
“Best to keep hind legs high, too,
even though gotta go fast to get to Owner ”
image
And there are several more
waiting for their go.
image
Others are doing the Rally-O.   “Sit? Yep,
I can do that! I've got KC Gold Award.”
image
“Weave between poles? That wasn't in the
Gold test! I'll just do my best.”
image
Back in the cool shady area,
still lots of chat, eats and drinks.
image
“Did someone say Eats?
What if I sit nicely and look very earnest? ”
image
“And what if I look soulful ...
and really hungry?”
image
“Ohh dear! Can anyone pass me a sausage
through the muzzle? I'm being Real Good.”
image
Looks like this Canine
has got it sussed.
image
And just look at that!
The Go-To-Bed command is declared a draw.
image
With all the activities over and plenty eaten,
everyone starts to relax ...
image
... Well, unless you have to look extra pert
when you notice the photographer!
image
Now, what can this well behaved dog
be watching? Let's follow his gaze ...
image
It's the Four Paws cake!
Specially made to finish the party. Yummy.

With our thanks, to Bruce and Liz for taking photos of the day.
