September GAP Walk

Hi Readers, Brisbane is wondering what happened to spring because summer seems to have arrived early. Ozzy and I headed off to Newfarm Park today to meet up with the gang for our September family walk.

The park has beautiful gardens and was already filling up when we arrived at 7:30. Some of the younger hounds wanted to chase the jet skiers along the river but it was too hot for those shenanigans.

I hope you like the photographs -

Today's history lesson - now pay attention class!

Well, it is hay fever season! Somebody pass Ozzy and antihistamine.

One of our greys for the day. I think we had three poodles there today?
 Ready to head out.
Stroke, stroke, stroke.  Way too hot for this sort of thing.
We could not convince this lady that we were from the powerhouse museum and that we would mind the morning tea for them.

 Along with a stunning pink bougainvillea.

Look at that sky at 8:00 this morning.
Dad took us to City Farmers for treats on the way home and I got to ride in an elevator.
Team baldy bum head for home. (Team "genetic gluteus maximus alopecia" was rejected as it won't fit on a T shirt)

Well Readers, thanks for stopping by. Thank you to everybody who attended today's walk as we always get a lot of cuddles and questions from the public about what great pets we are. Until next time - Bye for now - Murphy.

Deagon Family Race Day

Hi Readers, the GAP team was invited to the Deagon Race day today and what a day it was. There were thousands of people there, we got heaps of cuddles and everybody had a greyt day.

We are looking forward to doing it again next year.

So much fairy floss and soft drink, so little time. Team Eddie had a ball.

Well Readers, thank you to everybody who came to see us today. A big thanks to Leanne, Sam and Pumpkin for their agility display and to Sharon for helping to keep us greys under control. We are all off for a snooze and a bite of dinner before bed. Until next time -bye for now - Murphy.
