BFG and me went for a walk yesterday and found a Family Fun Day was on at the dam, put on by the local residents association. The sky was grey and rain threatening, so unfortunately it wasn't well attended, but we stayed to watch the show put on by the German shepherd club. Such happy dogs, trying their best to please their owners. The stuffed scarecrow guy came on and they all barked eagerly. He was the designated 'criminal' who had to pretend to attack people and grab handbags. He was well and truly dealt with by each of the protectors.
Then showing their gentler sides, children were asked to gather in the middle and take off their shoes, then the dogs sniffed out the other one of a pair of shoes given to them previously, amongst all the different smells. So clever!
