Last bit of double entry accountancy done ;D We have the total for the Doggy Dash - run by our very own Gamesmeister, 'Burn 'em up' Bern
Anita, hope you don't mind, I nicked your pic Fabulous photo's btw Anita, just read your post again, and pmsl at the thing about Rach's skirt Me & Lynne gutsymum nearly put Rach's jacket into our Cash for Clothes bag at one of our Last Sundays ;D Rach - keep your clothes ON innit Honestly Anita, I'm so glad you had your camera with you, you captured a lot of the moments I missed
Just noticed that Bern pipped me to the squeak, but yes indeedy, the Doggy Dash at just 50p a go raised a fabulous £87.51 There have been some lovely comments on our FB about how much people enjoyed doing the Doggy Dash - well done Team 'Games'
I think we're ready to announce the total for the day, but special mentions to Lisa (sorry lovely girl, the smell of sossige must be haunting you), for running the Best Sausage Catcher, which judging by the feedback we have had was an absoute wowzer with the dawgs
to the 13 dogs who caught the sausage' at 7+ metres on the day
And to Ellie 'the voice' ( soz Kirsty, but you've got serious competition as 'shouter' extraordinare) for bringing in the crowds
....and the Human Fruit Machine, manned by Becky (where were my cakes)? Jo, and young Friend Nico
Thanks also to Janette (new friend) who turned up, dived in (well, truth to tell, got dragged in, but no kicking or screaming involved), to young Becky, Katie, Amy, and everyone else who was there
Note to self - 20lb of sossige ain't enough Show stopped when we ran out of sossige, and I have had feedback a-plenty that this couldda gone on all afternoon if we'd have known how popular it was going to be The Best Sausage Catcher was an absolute crowd puller, and I have no doubt it's gonna hit the streets at dog shows across Wales; Also 7 metres ain't enough to separate the men from the boys, or the poopies from the bitches, we're going for 10 metres at our next show
Are you ready for this....? On the day we raised a magnificent
Gwyneth from the Victoria Park Committee presented Friends with a mahoosive donation towards our Sensory Garden Fund at the Show........
Notes to the accounts Best Sausage Catcher and Human Fruit Machine takings are included in the total for the stall £238
My calculator tells me we are exactly £10 out Someone has slipped us an extra tenner when we weren't looking Norty but nice
This fabulous four figure amount doesn't include the proceeds from the raffle, and a little bird tells me that the organisers *may* be sharing out a bit of bounty from the show proceeds once the show accounts are finalised in a few weeks, so watch this space ;D
Phew, worth the effort? I'll say!
Pats on backs to everyone who helped, before and during the show, and once again, many thanks to the show organisers, Caroline of Cardiff Canine Citizens and everyone who supported her.... Teichy, Caroline's amazing circle of friends, and Hope Rescue & Four Paws.

what a fantastic amount of money!!! ;D
sorry we couldn't make it in the end... we'd been away for the weekend and the weather was a bit wubbish on the Sunday, so since we drove all the way to Cardigan we then decided to spend the Monday up there as well.
Fabulous photos too. Looks like everyone had fun. xxx
Please forgive me coming back in with more thanks but I must say this -- My deputy Deputydawg was on the field at 07.45 rolling out netting even after not getting to bed untill 02.30 ( you'll find a reason for that somewhere hey Susie ) Thank you Caz couldn't have done it or many other events without your support. Your old dad might not say it often enough but really appreciates what you do to help me.
Aw thanks for the shout out. We're old hands at this doggy dash now aren't we? . We had a great team on Monday ensuring everything went smoothly. It's a shame I didn't have my camera on me to take more photos..next time ;D
Wow that's brilliant! What a huge amount! really well done. I enjoyed the show so much, loads to see and do and so many well behaved dogs (to inspire Billy!). The field was such as good size too, plenty of room to move about (or away if you have a lively pup). Love the pics too, there are some real stunners in there. I wish we'de tried the doggy dash now! Next time x
