Hot hounds at Helensville

As the Sun newspaper might roar in the UK: "Phew wot a scorcher!

My family packed me into the car again on Saturday and this time we went for quite a drive. Apparently we hounds were to strut our stuff at the Helensville A&P show for the cause. So after about an hour in the car, complete with roadworks in Parnell, three slow lost drivers in Henderson and a camper van, we arrived at the show grounds. What a cacophony of sounds, smells and animals, it was great!

We ambled up to the GAP tent and said hello to old friends and made some new ones too. Then it was of round the show grounds to promote the increased adoption of ex-racers for the cause. We got lots of hugs and kisses and lots of people are surprised to find out how little exercise we need and how easy we are to care for.

Wandering around the grounds was hot, thirsty work. We came back to the tent often and as you can see from the images below, we found it too hot to work... Even a cat would have been too much of an effort. On second thoughts, I would have not been able to resist the temptation! :)

The car got so dusty from our visit, that my family decided to take the car through the car wash on the way home. It was a new experience for me, but being such an amiable chap, it was not really an issue.
