Simonside Country Fair ~ August 2017 ~Doggy edition

Part 1.  

Of course everyone and his dog had a dog at the country fair, so it would have been rude not to photograph some of them.  They had time trials for dogs to fetch a little bean bag which was fun to watch

That little doggy wanted the beanbag back when he’d done his run!

They like to meet up

they had a horse and hound display in the arena

I was really surprised when the announcer invited everyone in to pet the dogs! Considering they are trained to hunt and kill, it seemed a bit odd especially as the place was full of kids.

But they were really lovely and so gentle, the kids and the dogs, well just about everyone had a good huggy time

Sophie is wary of dogs, but Mentat and I piled in and Sophie followed as she wanted to get pictures of Mentat with the dogs.

I got accosted and Sophie took a couple of me and ‘my’ dog 🙂

it was over far too quickly!

This little puppy was tucked in his owner’s arms, so cute

just cuteness everywhere really

and they had a Novelty Dog competition which was fun

a very good day for doggies.

Stay tooned, we’ve still got birds of prey, a pipe band and more stuff to come!

  1. Super sharp shots of the dogs, which you know I am going to enjoy of course! But no Ollie lookalikes? Shame.
    (Is Mentat a fan of the ‘Dune’ books perchance? That’s the only reference to that I can recall, Piter De Vries, the Mentat.)
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Oh, that puppy!! That must have been cool to see all those hounds together around the horses. My dog would not be able to contain her excitement around a horse! Oddly enough she met llamas the other day in the mountains, and she was going nuts!
