Samford RSPCA Million Paws Walk 2015

I was lucky enough to be invited along to have a stall at the RSPCA Million Paws Walk in Samford again this year, after attending for the first time in 2014. I live about 12 minutes away from Samford, it’s great to have one of these walks so close by where I can connect with locals! It definitely felt like an even bigger event this year and was quite packed, despite intermittent showers throughout the day.

There were dogs of all shapes and sizes and all on their best behaviour too – politely greeting each other and making friends.

I thought this was quite adorable – goes to show you can support the event if you don’t have a real live doggy to take along. Oh whoops – it IS a real dog? Sorry little man, my mistake!

Luckily there was some sunshine for the start of the walk and everyone took off with a bang!

After most people had completed the walk, there was an agility demonstration by Pine Agility Dog Sports Club, with quite a few dogs coming out of retirement for a run around the course.

The ladies from Bonnie’s Dog Obedience put on a great display with their dogs again this year, with a new “Learner” addition!

Then it was time for some frisbee action with PADS.

The theme of the event was “Heroes and Villains” so come competition time there were many dressed up pooches and owners on display!
