RSPCA Million Paws Walk - Samford

Hi Readers, The GAP greyhounds attended various location for the Million Paws Walk today and Mum, Dad and my brothers went to the Samford walk. We had beautiful weather which started off chilly but quickly warmed to be another greyt autumn day in Queensland.

We had a terrific turnout of proud hound owners and all of the hounds behaved so well that we got a lot of positive comments from the crowd. I hope you enjoy the photographs - 

This must be the great part of the RSPCA's "All creatures great and small". Peace, love and rainbows baby!
 Some of the early arrivals for team GAP.
 Two cheeky birds with their owner were there.
This lucky pooch escaped the tube of doom at the agility display.
Cousin Ollie was there to promote his PADS Agility  school.
Catching up with old friends.
 Um, not a greyhound but very friendly regardless !
Tibby catching some rays on a cool morning.
 Barry spies the sausage sizzle being held by the local fire brigade.
 Aw, everybody needs their Mum to help them look their best sometimes.
This chap who is part wolfhound dropped in to visit the greys.
The bobbing for cats* activity proved very popular before the walk kicked off.
Can you start a walk with a taser, what happened to a starters pistol?
And the walk is on, 4kms around the lovely village of Samford.
The GAP team looking good.
"Its my turn to be in front, no its my turn". We might be retired but we still like to be the lead hound in a race.
 Former house of hound favourite Mini walked with us.
As did this little guy.
 Yours truly cooling off at the half way point.
 "Hey, stop hogging the clam bath!".
Ozzy, Eddie and Tibby cool off on the return walk.
 Bailey cools his belly after the walk.
"All right, Mr DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up". I think I look rather distinguished here.
Ozzy, Tibby and the team discuss what a greyt day they had while waiting for their lattes. 

* No cats were sampled tasted consumed harmed during the walk. 

Well Readers, that's it for today as Eddie, Ozzy and I are all overdue for a snooze. Thanks to all the greyhound owners who attended and to all the well wishers who stopped us to talk about GAP. Boo to the lady who pushed her pram away from us with a scared look in her eyes, hopefully she fell into a nest of small fluffies and learnt her lesson. Cheers to the RSPCA staff and the Samford locals who made us feel very welcome. Bye for now - Murphy.
