GSP Fun Day!

This past weekend the GSPCC (German Shorthaired Pointer Club of Canada) held its annual fun day. We're very lucky that one of our members has what has to be the perfect place for dogs. She has ten fully fenced acres which are a combination of bush, creek, and manicured lawns. The dogs love it when we visit. I suffer extreme fence envy every time as well :)

Anyway, our fun day is an afternoon where the members and their dogs can gather to socialize while the dogs run riot over the property. This year we had approx. 15 dogs aged 10 weeks to 10 years running around. As you can see from the photos they had a blast. I brought Maelle, Limerick, Beans and Dublin from our crew with us. Below are some photos of the events.





One of the things we do each year is a bobbing for hot dogs contest.
We started by putting hot dog pieces in the bucket and seeing who'd go for the dive but decided the water was too deep so we resorted to using the kiddie pool with much more success.

Spice had to be restrained as she is a champion chow hound and literally shovelled the hot dogs into her mouth every chance she got. Others were more tentative but got the hang of it.

And we had a party crasher...this is Sophie the Vizsla (she and Maelle got along well and are similar ages):

More fun day photos:


  1. Looked like the most fantastic day! Loved the pics of the dogs bobbing for the bone biscuits in the pool! :-)


  2. GSP day looks like a blast. Hey, how could that little Vizsla dog not want to be a gate crasher.


  3. Water sports are always fun!
