With the sun shining and a fantastic view nearly 70 Labradors had a fun afternoon at the Bon Port Hotel this weekend.

Organised by Cherry Dewey with her two Labradors being the first to arrive, volunteers helping on the day couldn't believe car after car pulling up with Labradors of all sorts of shapes, sizes and ages.

The dogs started with a fun treasure hunt looking for rawhide chews then the very large group picture was taken with at least 65 Labradors and their owners.

There was a tombola with some fantastic prizes, Island Dog Training Club had a stand and Four Legged Physio also attended.

After the group picture the dogs enjoyed a hose down to help them cool off and due to the heat some of the games didn't take place, despite this everyone had a lovely afternoon.

We were very grateful to John Fitzgerald for giving his time to take photos and we are looking forward to seeing them.

Cherry Dewey the event organisor said 'I have to thank everyone from the team at the Bon Port Hotel, all those that donated the prizes, chews, biscuits and vouchers, the volunteers, all those attended and of course the 65 plus Labradors that made it such a wonderful afternoon.'

'It was a great day and we raised over £300 for the GSPCA and had a lot of fun.'

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said 'A huge thank you must go to Cherry for organising what was a fantastic afternoon.'

'Seeing so many well behaved, healthy, happy dogs was a joy and I have to say I have never seen so many Labradors in one place and must have been the biggest ever group of Labradors in one place to happen in Guernsey.'

'Thank you to everyone who attended and helped it was very much appreciated.'
