Pet Barn Underwood Fun Weekend.

Hi Readers, I'm just back from spending the weekend promoting GAP at the Underwood Pet Barn's fun weekend with Mum & Dad. Heaps of hounds turned up with their owners and we made a load of new friends.

I hope you enjoy the pics -

The team setting up on Saturday morning.
It was lucky we got this shot when we did ...
... as Bella photo bombed us straight afterwards.
Some of my fan club dropped in to see me.
I was kept busy ensuring that quality sausages were on hand at all times.
Sometimes you just need to use your brother a a pillow. Ozzy takes five on Eddy's chest.
Ozzy checks out Pet Barn's rules for hounds in store. He loved being able to choose his own snacks.
Carly thought she was seeing double when these two arrived for a sausage.
I was checking out Pet Barn's fine range of snacks ...
... when I found this hip hop guide to relationships.
Oh no, not these two again. Wally lost his bed to these small fluffies but was able to reclaim it a short time later.
"That's my lap, no, it's my lap".  Bandit and Bree put the squeeze on their human Milly today.
Aunty Gail and Mum with foster girl Shirley. Is she your new best friend?
I was on hand to lead the synchronized snoozing display.
The lovely Shirley waiting for her foster mum Sue to collect her from the promo.
Milly gets a cuddle from some young fans.
We all had a greyt time this weekend and look forward to doing it again.

Thanks for dropping by Readers, I must go and have a snooze after my strenuous weekend. Pigs ears, so many pigs ears. Bye for now - Murphy.

Prancer goes to School

Hi Readers, I've been telling Prancer for some time that he should get himself some learnin'. It seems he has finally taken my advice and went with Mum and Aunty Gail to visit the Craigslea primary school as part of the Brisbane City Council and Australian Veterinary Association's dog safety program.

He said it was really busy with three classes of children visiting him and learning all about how to approach a dog, dog registration and what greyt pets we greyhounds make (we keep telling people how good we are but we have found that we need to stay front of mind because humans tend to wake up one day and go "Lets get a dog, I wonder what breed we should get?", and they say goldfish have short attention spans).

Here are a couple of pics taken with an ifony which again proves why Mum should have gone android instead of following the flock to the nearest "apricot" store. I would have said the word that sounds like mapple but who can afford the litigation! Say that name three times and there they are like Lord Voldemort with just as much evil intent. Anyway, I seem to have strayed off topic so I hope you enjoy the box brownie pics -

"Is this the queue for lunch?" Prancer thinks this a big queue, LOL!

Ok then, I guess there were three classes of kids come through to visit him. Prancer looks very comfortable with his classmates as they listen to Mum talk about GAP.

The students and teachers loved Prancer's visit and it was very cute to have all the kids call out "bye Pranny" as he was leaving. I think I should go to the next one just to show how its done. Bye for now -Murphy.

October GAP Family Walk.

Hello Readers, thanks for stopping by. The extended GAP family headed for 7th brigade park near Chermside today for a walk. Heaps of hounds turned up and we meet a lot of locals who wanted to know all about Greyhounds as pets.

Check out my pics below -

Another greyt turnout for today's walk. There is something not quite right about that greyhound on the right hand side of the photo though.
Aunty Marnie and her mob arrive.
Getting ready to head off for our walk.
Wow, these guys really know how to build a dog kennel.
Gus gets a tummy rub from a  fan.
 Prancer, meet Gus the Boston Terrier!
Helen and Carly cooling down after the walk.
Zuma gets a treat for dropping from her mum. She is  just 22 weeks old.
Pumpkin get some reassurance from Jess that she is still a cutie now that Zuma is about.
Pumpkin and Bruiser talk fashion.
Izzy meets one of the local pooches.
I thought that they really over catered the walk this month.
 But then we realised that the word was out and everybody wanted to see me.
Runners asks Jack, did you say runners?
The crowds arrived in their droves so we had to head off for security reasons.

"Hurry, we might still be able to see Murphy". Lucky we escaped before the main body of fans arrived.

Well Readers, I'm off for an extra long snooze as we visited Granny and Granddad on the way home from the walk. Until next time - Murphy.

Happy Birthday Eddie

Hi Readers, it is brother Eddie's 2nd birthday today. Its also 35 degrees outside so we only went out to take a quick picture before coming back inside to the cool.

"Never mind the silly hat, where's my cake?" asks brother Eddie?

Anyway Readers, we had some lovely pigs ears for lunch in honour of the day and the birthday cake is set down for later today when it cools down. Bye for now - Murphy.
