It was BUCKETING down. All day. The whole time. Non-stop. Lots and lots of rain.
Perfect day for a picnic, I say!
Let's go... Got your gumboots peeps?
My grandparents from the tropical land of Germania are here at the moment so here they are with the first lot of out-of-towners who battled the elements and drove over two hours to make the day perfect.
Here we are with Mink and Emma and their peeps.
Down by the Barwon river is actually quite a nice spot for and picnic...
Anyway, once we yapped for a while, everydoggie else arrived and it was time to get rid of some beans (if you know what I mean) and go for a walk - in the rain of course!
There are NO photos of that bit - funny that.
Once we got back to shelter, it was time for munchies. There are 10 of us Dales & families here now.
And then some fund-raising activities...
Raffle tickets anyone?
We had stacks of prizes and all proceeds went to Airedale Rescue.
And not just the pinkies scored...
We even scored some xmas hampers that one special fairy had lovingly prepared ...
See what the certificates say?
One says, well done Inky Pups for not chasing too many cats - ha!
We truly did have a great day and didn't mind the weather one bit. All that rain made it even more special, people driving great distances and spending lots of hours preparing the raffle prizes...what a fantastic lot you are!
See you all again soon.
