On 5 February 2017, committee member Diane organised a meet up at Brighton Dog Beach. There were roughly 30 Labradors turned up, thanks to the power of social media. Thank you to members who took time out from their busy schedules to attend. The group squeezed in a couple of hours of play before the storm hit Melbourne. Below are the pictures from our Facebook page.
The Big Day Out for Dogs held at KCC park had a huge turnout and the day was perfect for it. First and foremost, the club would like to extend its thanks to our judges, Mrs Linda Adams for the open show and Mrs Pauline Mathieson for the Fun Classes. We are pleased to report that we had a significant number of entries in both events. Lots of other dog lovers watched as our Labradors (and honourary Labs) strutted their stuff during the Fun Classes, with the sock race as the sure-fire crowd pleaser. It’s really lovely to see everyone having a real good time and enjoying the weekend with their furry friends. The event won’t be a success without our club secretary Leanne and treasurer Helen for leading the event and organising the prizes.
Below are the results and pictures taken on the day. Photos courtesy of Noelene and Jan. Some of these you may have seen on our Facebook page.
