GAP Christmas Breakfast 2011

Hi Readers, today was the 2011 GAP Christmas get together. We headed off to Decker park Sandgate  for a walk followed by breakfast  along the bay. It was a lovely day to celebrate GAP's achievements over the past few months since Gail joined the team. As you'll see from the photographs there were a lot of happy hounds and their humans there today.

The start of a lovely day on the bay.

Sara was there...
 ... as was Oscar.
 Getting to know everybody...
... usually results in a bit of greyhound maypole dancing.

One of theses hounds is not like the others?

Many, many hounds.

It was great to catch up with all the hounds and their peeps.

Well Readers, I must be off for a snooze while Mum and Dad de-sand Eddie and Hope. Take care and until next time be kind to your hounds - Murphy.

IPAC Lifestyle Event

Hi Readers, GAP was invited to attend the IPAC lifestyle event at the St Lucia golf course last night. Prancer and I put on our best evening wear collars and headed off to the clubhouse with Mum and Dad.

I hope you enjoy the pictures -

I thought it was only some dogs that wasted time chasing balls around a park?
 Prancer and I ready to greet the guests.
It was so hot yesterday that one of my fans bought us water in a lovely silver ice bucket.
 I've never seen mangoes like these ones before.
Catching up on how my portfolio is performing in the current market (curse you Berlusconi!). 
Dad with greyhound adoption advocate Dr Harry Cooper.

Anyway readers, I promised Prancer that I wouldn't mention his attempt to steal the canapes or the fact he went snout down in some body's champagne glass so I won't. See you next time readers - Bye for now - Murphy.

Hope & Eddie's 1st Birthday

Hi Readers, the past few weeks have seen both Hope and Eddie have their 1st birthday. Mum made them a special "cake" today which we all shared.

"Cake?, did somebody say cake?"

Prancer pretends that he isn't interested...
...before launching a preemptive strike before the birthday boy and girl can blow out the candle.

 Order restored, Hope makes a wish.
All we got from Eddie was "Nom, nom, nom"

Anyway Readers, we are still trying to find the candle but are sure it will eventually pass! Have a great weekend and bye for now - Murphy.
