With 50 dogs in attendance, the Pawprint in the Garden Event was a roaring success. Should be say Barking success?
There were games and a a gourmet pet buffet spread out for our lovely doggy guests. The afternoon started early with some of the guests arriving at 1pm in the afternoon. The day was bright and sunny but we had water stations across the garden for dogs to have a drink.
All parents were practicing petiquette int he lovely Big House Garden. The scene was set and the afternoon gave way to the fashion show with the spring well as the background. Birds of paradise flowers were arranged and the red carpet rolled out for the runway. Our winners as follows:
