What do you get when you have many dog owners bringing their dogs out to the park ? You get a fun day of carnival, gatherings, dog grooming, competitions and many happy dogs running around, making new friends.
It was the National Dog Walk 2008, organised by Noah's Ark CARES, held at the West Coast Park Dog Run compound, the event started from 10am and ended 7pm. I only got there at around 4pm, hoping to catch the dog walk charity event at 430pm and take photos of the different breeds of dogs in playful action.
Well, I found myself at the dog running compound, enjoying watching the different types of dogs playing with their owners, fellow doggies, and strangers. There were also a competition to test the dog's capabilities such as agility and speed, with a well-designed circuit for the dog to go through with their owner. It was fun watching them in action especially the Siberian Husky completing the circuit in hot Singapore weather !
In between, it was very fun and also very challenging to take the dogs in action around the other parts of the field, whether playing with their toys or with their new found friends. Their movements and actions were very fast and changing direction very rapidly, however, there were also the lovely and peace loving doggies that would sit down on the chair or lie down on the grass patch and let you take their photos !
Oh, by the way, my lovely Japanese Spitz was very tired from her morning adventure at the National Dog Walk and couldn't go back for the walk at 430pm. She's kind of overweight and it affected her 4 skinny legs. She needs slimming class.........
