Blessing of the Pets, 4th October 2015 @ 10:30am

The annual Blessing of the Pets is taking place again next Sunday, 4th October 2015 and with our very own Uniting Church Minister, Janice McWhinney, in our Club, all of our Scotties (and any other pets you would like to bring along) are welcome at Janice’s church for the Blessing of the Pets service.  It will be held at 10:30am in the the courtyard of the East Kew Uniting Church, 142 Normanby Road, East Kew.

It was a lovely service last year so worth attending if this is of interest to you.

Hope to see a decent turnout of Scotties again this year.

Royal Botanic Gardens Walk tomorrow @ 10am

The Royal Botanic Gardens walk is on tomorrow and is always a highlight on our Calendar of Events.  We’ll be meeting at 10am at the Observatory Cafe, Birdwood Ave, South Yarra before setting off on the walk.  We have two routes planned this year, a shorter route for pups and senior citizens and a longer route for the younger dogs who need to burn off some energy.

We will all finish at the cafe down by the lake where you can purchase a coffee and partake in some sweeties provided by members of the Committee.

Please bring a picnic rug to sit on as the ground will be moist from this week’s rainfall.  The forecast is showing a 50% chance of showers but only to 1mm, so, even if it does rain, you won’t get too wet.  Looking forward to seeing you all there.

Another one of our regional events for the year, this time it’s a walk around Victoria Lake Park in Shepparton.  The meeting spot is the BBQ area just near Cafe on the Lake, 532 Wyndham St, Shepparton at 11am sharp.  We’ll set off on a leisurely walk around the lake (1.7km) and finish off back at the cafe where, if you wish, you can purchase and enjoy lunch or refreshments with your fellow Scottie owners.  We have invited the West Highland White Terrier Club of Victoria to join us also so please welcome them and their Westies should you see them.

Non-members are welcome at this event.
