Sutton Park 2 dog walk blog

Today we were due to go on a RGT walk in Stratford. The light dusting of snow and the cold weather made the hoomans change their plans.

Instead of loads of grey there was just Star and I. Star got excited at 2 whippets running around.

The terrain was varied from mud to snow to grass.

We did stop and take some photos of Star to send to a friend.

We all won this morning- less travelling we got 1.5 hr walk the RGT walk was only 1hr. Plus we were promised pigs ears when we got home. Boy did we jump into the boot quickly!

Crufts ticket draw blog

Today was the big day I did the draw to decide who won the Crufts tickets.
To make it a fair chance for everyone Dad wrote down all the names down in number order of all the correct emails received. Dad downloaded a random number generator app for his phone.

This was Mom showing me the phone whilst out on our walk to prove it was all fair.
Mom pressed the phone at 12.15 and the first two numbers were 4 then 3.

This means the winners were;

Kryssy , Bedfordshire
Carol, Stoke on Trent

Congratulations guys hope you have a fantastic day!

Would love to see a photo of you having fun. My hoomans are going on Sunday so they may see you there or at the tweet up (blog will tell you where we are meeting)

There is so much going on at Crufts ;

Breeders competition (49 teams 196 dogs)

Friends for life (heart warming stories that make the hoomans cry)
Good dog citizen dog scheme ring
Agility (I'm no good at that I walk round the tunnel not through it)
Obience (us greyhounds when we feel like it if it's not a cat or squirrel)

Of course 4 days of judging the individual breeds to get a grand champion.

This was years winner a flat coated retriever called Jet incidentally last year was the 120th time the kennel club had organised Crufts.

But you can't forget the huge variety of doggie things to buy from leads, collars , treats (nom nom!) toys (hope they get us another tuffie toy(the one from Christmas still has all its squeaks ) and much more.

I hope this has wet your appetite to go in the meantime

Waseley hills RGT walk 2 blog

Hoomans had a lovely cooked breakfast and saved Star and I a sausage for after our walk.

30 minutes in the car to Waseley Hills country park. £1.20 into the machine for all day parking and jackets on for our walk.
Stat received her new AK Creation jacket yesterday. I already have one we had loads of people on the walk saying they were smart and where to get them from.

As you can see we are a smart looking pair. Fortunately hoomans had the sense not to have jackets that clashed.
There was about 45 of us it was cold with some snow under our paws. The fog was covering the views. After a 40 minute walk around the park we descended the field back to the car.

Hoomans were lucky in the raffle last but 1 prize - biscuits or greyhound notebook. Had the notebook! We got a sausage nom nom !
Time for a trip back in the car and snooze time!
