    I just hope it's not absolutely freezing and wet. Should be a great day though, I've been sick all week but rain, hail, shine or vomit, I will be there!! hehe

    Hope you all have a fun and fabulous day... just a word of caution tho, I do hope your doglets are at their fittest to tackle this walk - the 3 years I took Rosie, she came back with a diffferent strain of KC... no more MPW for her... too tough on her system.

    Gyspy and I managed to do the MPW full circuit for the south west WA yesterday. She was perfect, she haw well behaved and only wanted to play with the other dogs. The only growls came from other dof and Gyspy dropped straight into a submissive position.

    Gypsy finished the walk well and no signs of stess but she happily napped in the car on the way home.

    I do have remind anyone taking a digital camera... don't forget extra batteries. I had planned to take plenty of pics but my camera died after the first photo and sadly not of the dogs
    The day was fun non the less and we will definately be going again next year. we even manage to raise some donations for RSPCA. best of luck to everyone today

    Rox and I had a great day trudging through the park! My shoes are covered in mud and so is Rox. It was great though

    I didn't take any photos I just had no arms left, Rox has to be on my left for safety reasons and I was also carrying the age bag full of stuff, but I must had got a dud one because it kept nearly slicing my fingers off. That mixed with trying not to fall in the mud meant no photos

    We got some great deals though, on shampoo and toys. I had to giggle at the dogwash vans, with all the mud there was no point unless the dog was carried out!!

    My greatest moment of the day though....well it was sort of the whole day. Roxie growled maybe three times, and that was it!! No barking, she actually even played with other dogs!!!! I am so excited. It's so great to know that all my hard work at school is paying off

    Hope everyone else had a great day too!!

    We had a fabulous day...We will be on telly with the Demo team. All the dogs were great.
    Katy and Luke had so many pics taken with kids by parents. And the companion animal person chased us and wanted to know if we were interested in visiting a School after the dogs and us were vetted. they were so impressed with how our dogs just met and greeted everyone, especially kids
    Lukey did the grand parade with his favourite new friend six year old Renee, just fun to see him so relaxed.
    No growling form anyone and just lots of loving
    Annabelle did her carting off lead to pick up all the stuff from the demo and both Annabelle and Tessa did Rally o, which is so much fun.......We walked and walked, but it was a great day, a very social day for all
    Pets are forever

    We had a great day. It was our first year.

    Our flyball team all walked together and Johnny is so pooped tonight he tried sleeping standing up!

    Got a tiny bit sunburnt though - needed more sunscreen!

    We went to the beach and had a great time.

    I'm not much for crowds and traffic freaks the dog out so I'm not sure MPW is for us.

    That's great news! Looks like all your hard work is paying off, and I'm glad to hear of everyone having a great time!
