Fox Terrier Fun Walk No 2

On Saturday I got to meet some pals old and new for the 2
nd Fox Terrier Fun Walk in Brighton. These included Sally & Paddy and their new foster friend, Douglas and my good pal, Blue who was acting as official photographer. I slipped her a fiver beforehand to make sure she only got my good side, what do you think, was it worth the money?

We also had a handful of handsome Welsh Terriers along, plus my good pal, Seamus the Irish Terrier and a lovely lab called Purdy.

There were 23 dogs in total including 15 of us WFTs. We met at 11.00 at Brighton Marina for a photoshoot and pawtographs. Then we headed off, taking the Undercliff Walk from Brighton towards Saltdean. It was a lovely sunny day and several pals went for a dip in the sea. Brrrr, far too cold for me!

The great thing about the Undercliff Walk is that it is very flat so I could recline in my chariot for part of the journey. Several other dogs were a bit jealous, and tried to hitch a ride with me.

I know that some of the ladies were super excited when they heard that Harrison Ford was going to be attended. Here he is, resplendent in his green neckerchief:

What, were you expecting to see someone else, hehehe?

If you have a Facebook account you can see more on my Foxed Wire Fox Terriers group page, or on J1s Flickr page or on the Fox Terrier Rescue site or on Blue's blog of course...

Droolsome treats were supplied by my bakery of choice, the Dog Dogs Bakery, Mmmmm!

We all had a lovely day and hope to do it again soon...

Great coverage of the event, Jackson. The water did look a bit chilly, but otherwise a pretty, sunny fall day there. And such a lovely bunch of WFTs! You looked very regal as a wheelie, too. I'll bet the other dogs were jealous!

Happy Tails,
William Tell

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

Hello my Pip of a Pal Jackson! Miss Peachy here but not for long because I will be getting married on Halloween and will then be Mrs. Peach Armstrong. Please pop in for the special event if you can and feel up to it. I understand you need to conserve your energy...I wanted to post this comment from a dear WFT loving friends of mine after I sent her your adventure! Pip Pip Cheerio ol boy!
"First of all, thank you SO much for sending the link to Jackson's adventure. I would surely have thought I had died and gone to heaven had I been able to attend the event. Of course, I have seen such collections of Foxies and Welshies, but only at dog shows, confined to crates or show rings, and not with their loving parents at their sides. How wonderful it must have been to be able to walk among those groups. M was fascinated by the photos and also expressed how wonderful it would have been to be there."

I can't believe it's been so long since I visited. Sorry. Your walk looked fabulous and so do you, Jackson. You could have saved your fiver, because all your sides are good.
