It was wonderful last year at The Alfinmarsh Christmas gathering to catch up with the owners and to watch the dogs have a great time running around and playing. Many of the boys wanted to prove to their dad (Alfinmarsh Alfie) that they had grown up into strong healthy boys by trying to out-run him, it was very tiring for Alfie bless him but he loved it!
We were caught out last year on the drink side, not getting our favourite mulled wine in soon enough, We promise NOT to be this year!
This time we will supply Mulled Wine, Sloe Gin and hot sausage rolls up in the barn.
We are also going to hold many Have-a-go games.
Over the sheep pens for the adults dogs and a mini one for the younger or inexperienced ones.
we will supply towels for the wet doggies
The Sausage retrieve
A whole cooked sausage to be retrieved, good luck :-)
Best Party Trick
can your dog beg, walk backwards, pick up keys, any trick your dog does
is good for this game.
Pick and Mix
Two unseen dummies for the experienced dog.
Two Seen dummies for the less experienced and
One seen dummy to retrieve for the younger ones.
The young ones only have to retrieve back to the owner, no sitting required, just praise required.
And many more games
Basically you just have a go, at what you want, whilst having fun.
Of course anyone who wants to go for a walk through the fields still can. Gary or I will be popping off for a walk (just through the adjoining fields) with Alfie and Bella at some point as of course we will not be putting any of our dogs into the 'have a go games'. We will be to busy enjoying ourselves watching all of your Alfinmarsh dogs and I'll be too busy talking :-)
So company would be nice on the walk
We are lucky to once again, have the wonderful Ali Packham with us on the day from
We are also lucky to have Linda and Eric Morley there.
Two wonderful people who have more christmas spirit in their toes than some people have in their whole body.
Every christmas Linda and Eric come up with wonderful games for the dogs at her dog classes, and this year they will be helping us with our little event.
This will be a 'Pick and Mix of Fun' for allthe Dogs
so you can take part in whichever one you fancy, and at no time will there be more than one dog on each game.
The main aim of the games is fun!
though we will time you if you wish and
who knows you might go home with a Rosette
Don't get to excited, he he he!
We look forward to seeing you all
and even Farther christmas may turn up for the children?
Though if he does we will have to keep him hidden in the barn, just for the children to see.
Father Christmas is loved by all who sees him of course, but his outfit could scare the life out of the younger dogs, coco cola have a lot to answer for, he he he!
