What a fantastic turnout we had at the April 2001 get together!

As well as our many Belgian friends and their families, the day drew a number of visitors who came to see what our breed was like in the flesh...

Thank you to all who participated and made the day the success it was.

Also a big thank you to NATURES GIFT for the goodies and the showbags they provided for all who came!

A summary of the day.

The weather was kind to us and it was a beautiful sunny day. The first thing on the agenda was a leisurely walk through the parklands, with games of chasey and a refreshing dip in the river (taken by some of the four footed gang). Next was lunch and chat time, then the fancy dress competition - always a popular event. Natalie, on behalf of Natures Gift then presented all the doggies with their goodies YUM! This was followed by more chat time and meeting all the dogs, then it was time to see what these dogs were made of! The dogs and owners were invited to participate in a Canine Temperamnet Evaluation, the purpose of the test being to evaluate a particular dog on that particular day. Briefly it consisted of a number of situations and distractions which the dogs encountered with their handlers and the dogs were evaluated based on their reactions and recovery to them on the day. We thank I & M Macdonald for agreeing to do this test. It proved to be another popular event which we will continue at future fundays.

Listed below are some of the dogs and their people that attended. If I have left out anyone I'm sorry - drop me a line and I'll include you here.
