So after leaving the Coventry Greyhound Trust show I travel 9 miles to my old kennels were I spent a month before going to my forever home.
In the car park was an extra large dog glammed up all festive like Star and I.
There were stalls inside the reception area. A favourite of mine a dog tombola
But hoomans were fresh out of luck . I think the lady before them won 3 prizes with 5 tickets. But then I spotted a huge Christmas tree 🎄 and its was time for my second tree shot of the year. Underneath it is loads of donations for the hounds in the kennels.,
Talking of kennel hounds the reception area was very busy with prospective new owners. This year they have rehomed over 1200 dogs. Here are the dogs looking for forever hounds.
There’s a Rolo looking for a home as well hoomans also got some great Christmas cards as they have a soft spot for cards with dogs on. There was more of the fair at the side of the meet and greet exercise area. Where they had a bottle stall with bottles of Wine 🍷 or Water 💧 ? If it was beer 🍺 or water 💧 hoodad would have spent a fortune. There was a lucky dip and folks talking about sponsoring a dog. At the bottom of the path is a wooden hut where SantaPaws has been in the past so I got excited thinking he may be there this year. But no it was more great stalls.
Lots of great dogs trust stuff but not the poo bags Hoomom wanted. There was also a brick and brack stall.
There was a great refreshment stall selling hot soup, tea, coffee, sausage rolls, scones and lots of lovely cakes. So where was Santa paws ??? how did I miss this sign by the gate. Luckily I read the sign and it told me where the bearded chap 🎅 was. I spotted one of the things hoodad likes as well a selfie frame !
But when we arrived at the grotto SantaPaws 🎅 was already with someone so we got fuss from his little helper.
He had moved into a lovely grotto although I did check out his Christmas nuts as I don’t have any of my own.
Star and I posed for a couple of photos in the grotto I
before having our photo with SantaPaws even though we weren’t allowed on his lap.
I had a great time at the fair – keep up the good work Dogs Trust – Merry Christmas 🎄🎉🎅.
Better news for you guys reading this blog the fair is also on Tomorrow Sunday 3rd December 12-4pm.
