Brookfield Vet Family Fun Day

Hi Readers, the GAP team was invited to attend the Brookfield Vet's family day. The theme was the toy story movies and we had a lovely time speaking to loads of people about how greyt we are as companions for you humans.

We met all sorts of dogs today from the very small to the very large and a few non canine creatures to boot. I hope you enjoy the photographs -

"Take us to your greyhounds!" demanded these little guys.
Aunty Gail and mum with Lucy, Teddy and Ozzy showing off their cowboy hats.
"Hang on girls, I'm sure Murphy is around here somewhere!"
"Can we trade these two in for greyhounds?" asked this visitor.

These lucky girls were at the top of the queue to meet me.

"Um, I think this one is broken?" Fortunately I was wrong.
Little beau peep had lost her sheep so she bought a guinea pig instead.
