Greyhounds join Feilding Christmas Parade :)

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Oscar (Unplugged) loved the crowd and the affection :)))
Canine Good Citizen certified dogs from Feilding Dog Training Club were asked to join Christmas parade in Feilding, held last Sunday. Our dog club is one of the leading ones in the country;  its Canine Good Citizen (CGC) classes have been attended by numerous GAP greyhounds from Sanson (I will do a post especially on that -watch this space !).

We had six greyhounds attanding the parade:
Beryl (Winsome Deluxe), Stanley (Chile Will He) -certified CGC Foundations dogs.
Our Lucy The Ferret - who has CGC Silver certificate.
And by special permission from our instructor, Snowy (Cawbourne Snow), who will sit his exam soon :) and also two Sanson greyhounds currently up for adoption: Oscar (Unplugged) and Troy (Powerful Enemy).
 There were thousands of people lining the streets - our little town was packed to the brim! :) Greyhounds and their friends from the club had a great time charming the crowds. I gave away ALL the GAP leaflets I had :) Sue and myself have taken loads of pictures:

11yr old Emma did a great job of handling Snowy
All dogs were dressed up; Lucy wore her GAP

Oscar looked amazing in his Santa Bear hat and collar :)
Snowy was a Christmas tree :))))
He also tried Lucy's hat :)))))
