Well, where do we start? August has been a very busy and fun-filled month for us but we have loved every minute.
August began and ended with two Doggy Love Sleepovers. Mum started the month by having a Doggy Love Sleepover with the gorgeous Mollie & Bella in their home whilst their family went on holiday. Mollie and Bella were really well behaved for mum and had loads of fun with them. They went to Calderstones Park for a walk, had bacon rolls from McDonalds for breakfast, munched mum’s treats and met up with us for a play date.
Then, at the very end of the month, we had the cute Casper to stay with us in our house while his family went on their jollies too. Casper enjoyed staying with us – we took him to mummy’s show to help on the stall, he met our chickens Gypsy and Tuktuk, we went on a day out around Sutton Woods and he even had a groom by mummy so he went home looking all smart to his family 🙂
This month, our lovely Aunty Jodi turned 18 and is now finally an adult! We want to wish her a huge happy birthday and say a big thank you to her for everything she does us! We love Aunty Jode so much, as she looks after us when mum and dad go on holiday and she often comes to the dog shows to help out. She’s our best friend! We got her a lovely pair of earrings for her birthday that match a ring her best friend got her. We wanted to get her something special she could keep forever and she loved our present!
We had the RSPCA Liverpool show, a show that our mummy helped to organise/host. The RSPCA Liverpool has a special place in our hearts as it’s where both Meg and Roxi came from and mum and dad have done lots to help out the charity over the years including monthly donations, a skydive, Santa dashes and food and supply donations every Christmas.
Doggy Love Bakery provided treats and doggy pops as prizes for the winners of the dog show. The day was a great success and the weather stayed nice and dry. There was a fab dog display, have a go agility, temptation alley, the fun dog show, a bouncy castle, balloon artist, face painter, magician, paint-your-own pottery and make your own cupcakes for children, a pet photographer and caricaturist, mascots, cake stall, Vets 4 Pets, PAT dogs, Merseyside Dogs Home, Guide Dogs, the lifeboat service, tasty food and drink and the kennels and cattery were open so people could check out the dogs and cats needing forever homes. There was loads to see and do for the whole family and everyone had a brilliant day.
All four of us went to help on the stall and support mum, as well as Casper, who was with us on his Doggy Love Sleepover. We also had Aunty Jodi and Aunty Ashleigh, who worked on the bouncy castle, Aunty Jenny, who helped out too and our pals Mike and Jenny and their dogs Mitzy and Holly. Mike is a magician and he came along to do some tricks and magic for the people attending the show. Mike’s magic is amazing and always wows people! He does weddings and events so if anyone needs a magician for their party, his website is here.
We had a really fun day and Casha & Pip, who mum had a Doggy Love Sleepover with a few weeks back, came to see us to, which was lovely. Dolly and Roxi even managed to win some rosettes on the day! Dolly came 3rd in Best Rescue and Roxi came 1st in Prettiest Bitch and then went on to win 4th in Best in Show!
We will report next month how much the day managed to make for the RSPCA.
Next month, we have a trip to London on the cards for the Battersea Dogs Home’s Annual Reunion (our first ever trip to the big smoke!) and our last few shows of 2015 – Woofs and Wellies in Croxteth Park, Liverpool, Great Greyhound Gathering in Nottingham Racecourse, Paws in the Park in St Helens and the Ness Dog Show in Neston, Wirral.
See you then! Woof, Woof!
Meg, Alfie, Roxi & Dolly xxxx
