Number of dogs taking part in Schnauzerfest

Post by BeeBee » 21 Oct 2014, 18:55

Trying to get a rough idea of numbers of dogs who enjoyed their weekend out with others.
If hosts could add what they think here, between here and Facebook we might come up with a reasonably accurate overall total :D

I think it was around 30 for Bristol, maybe a few more :) Do you reckon that's about right Alison?

I wasn't an organiser but I am pretty sure there were 20 on the South Wales walk.

I'd say closer to 40, I tried counting several times, got past 30 and had to give up as my eyes were crossing and I was getting whip lash =))

What an incredible turn out!!

At Delamere Forest, I overheard quite a few funny comments, one being ' Wow, I've never seen that many in my life', and the one which really made me chuckle was' OMG where've they all come from, they're taking over' =)) =))

To us, it was simply schnauzer heaven :ymhug:

During the Rye walk a woman stopped me and asked about all the schnauzers and was telling me how wonderful it was that we all got together. When I told her what the cause was for I thought she was going to cry, all she kept saying was 'This is just so so wonderful', made me feel really proud to be part of it all :D

Someone who stopped and talked to me while we were waiting to start walking at Black Park was impressed and asked me if she could donate too. I told her about the Facebook page ...don't know if she did? Still, lots of lovely reactions!
