The Wag and Bone Show

This morning Ruby and I tipped up early at The Wag and Bone Show - a huge doggie carnival in aid of several major animal charities. 7000 pups, 13,000 folks, dog-fashion shows, training, fly-ball, agility, assistance dogs, and dozens of stands selling everything from organic chow to terrier tu-tus.

Ruby is a sociable dog, and had said hello to so many hounds in the first quarter hour that she thoroughly exhausted herself.

There were dogs and people of every shape and size, colour and age, and it was particularly encouraging to see so many with visible disabilities - both dogs and people. Ruby barely bats an eyelid now at a dog with wheels as well as back legs, or a missing front limb. The three legged agility dog team were really impressive!

Being friends with some of the organisers, Ruby has scored a lot of freebies this year - favourite so far are the doggie bubbles - like the ones I had as a kid, but in 2 flavours - bacon and peanut butter!

Other visitors to The Wag and Bone Show:
English Springer Spaniel Puppy Kimba
Jake and his mum Sandra took a lot of pictures!
The Oldies Club were there helping older dogs find homes

They're just like the bubbles kids have, but in doggie favourite flavours!

I will take some pictures tomorrow :)
