The National Family Dog Walk Day was truly great fun, especially the group we met at St Annes Park, Dublin.
We had a wonderful afternoon at St Annes Park, which is one of those real treasures that we have here in Dublin. St Annes Park spreads between, Clontarf, Killester, Dollymount and Raheny. It has an abundance of fabulous grounds with spectacular trees and foliage. It has an amazing amount of football pitches, pitch and putt course and tennis courts. How lucky can we be!!!The sun came out and soaked us with its autumn warmth. No need for rain coats or umbrellas. Each and every person was enthusiastic and obviously has Irish Guide Dogs close to their hearts. Even though we unfortunately didn't have access to the IGD Flashes people were still very generous and made donations. Thank you to all who came out and did the walk.
Don't forget to get out and walk today and support the IGDB by buying the HIGH-VIS FLASHES!!! BE SAFE, BE SEEN!!! The flashes are being sold for adults and children and they are even selling ones to fit around your dogs collar in pharmacy's and veterinary clinics nationwide.
We have the full support of Hector O'hEochagain and Roy Keane.
Roy Keane will be doing the local walk in Cork as a representative for the Irish Guide Dogs!
Go on get out there and walk!!!
All across Ireland, IGDB have organised local walks through their network of volunteers and they're inviting you to bring along your friends, family and dogs to get active and walk for us in your community.
