Dogs Qld All Dog Sports Spectacular

Hi Readers, this weekend the GAP team headed out to the Dogs Qld Durack showgrounds to participate in the All Dog Sports Spectacular. There was breed judging, fly ball, lure coursing, dancing with dogs, agility, earth dogs and heaps more. It was also a very hot weekend with temps around 36 degrees Celsius (96 Fahrenheit - blah).

I hope you enjoy the photographs -

 The event was run by Dogs Queensland.
Me looking alluring at the start of day one.
Teddy has mastered roaching in his cool coat. Here he is is flirting with a visitor to the stand.
Aunty Gail with GAP's new recruit Manny the Border Collie. Cute isn't he?
For once Teddy was on the receiving end of the puppy teeth.
I got so many pats over the weekend. I love meeting the public and talking about GAP.
 A couple of poodlesque visitors to the GAP stand.
 This little apricot girl was a delight and was so well behaved.
There were heaps of sight hounds there so we felt right at home. Check out this lovely afghan.
This English bull terrier was a handsome dog and a crowd favorite.
Cleo the borzoi was there as well. She was cuddling Dad so I was a little jealous (but don't tell him).
 Waiting for judging in the fluffiest tails category.
The synchronized dog stacking event was also very popular.
The biggest guy at the show.
The griffons came in as runners up in the most likely to cause chaos category...
.. while the dachshunds were the clear winners again.

It was brother Eddie's 3rd birthday today so this big blue boy dropped in to wish him well.

 Did I mention it was really, really hot this weekend?
Teddy was as cute as always and won over everybody from kids to seniors with his antics.
Another of our neighbours cooling off under a tree after a hose down.
Aunty Gail rapping about GAP with Jessie James (no really!).
A slight technical issue on day one of the lure coursing ...
... was soon fixed. Look at her go!
 Um, did I mention it was hot?
Eddie and Manny flaked out after a big day of meeting and greeting.
 Teddy being cute!
Mum helping us model our cool coats. We had these on most of the time.
Mother and daughter cuties. Its not all about work you know people!
The dalmatians were well represented over the weekend.
 And cool coats were the order of the day across all breeds.
This french bulldog quickly surrendered to having its whiskers trimmed.
Teddy and friend.
A few visitors chatting about greyhound adoption through GAP.
After two long and very hot days it was time to head home.

Well Readers, I'm off for a snack, some electrolytes and a good lay down before dinner. Until next time - bye for now - Murphy.
