Emma Barr reports:

The walk took place on Sunday 9th November at Dun a Ri Forest Park in County Cavan, where we actually enjoyed some lovely dry weather and were even able to picnic in sunshine.
We had eight flatcoats with us and whilst some were extremely enthusiastic swimmers and others merely enjoyed paddling; they all ended up thoroughly soaked and filthy!
Thank you very much to Felicity O’Neil for organising the outing.

Anyone who followed Perry on his previous website knows about the youtube Gopro videos I have made for him.

We went to Lidl yesterday and found there a knock-off version of the GoPro, so worth trying and the result is just as good!
The sound is even better!.

I used it on the whole walk today, but because I have yet to edit it all and there is more to film, here a short preview of the walk towards the beach.

You guess when it is Freddie and when it is Perry

HINT:
Perry is the black dog, and Freddie has the yellow swimming coat

What is the IFRR?

Category : Uncategorized

What is the IFRR,

Mary Haines, founder of the IFRR explains:

 

The Independent Flatcoated Retriever Rehoming was founded 15years ago by flatcoat devotees
using their own resources.

The aims have always been to help any flatcoat or owner that may need assistance either with

rehoming or advice.

We aim to be on call 24/7 – we have volunteers and contacts UK wide and try our very best to deal

with any situation – emergency or non-emergency.

Our network has grown quite considerably and so has our ability to help more flatcoats.

We have a web-site where you can read more about our work and fundraising .

We also have an active facebook page and we produce a quarterly magazine that gives updates on

our rehomings and features stories by our very clever dogs!

We welcome any enquiries and are happy to ‘talk flatcoats’

www.flatcoated-retriever.info

If you want to help the IFRR, you can donate via the donate page, or organise your walk and let people donate to join the walkie via the page we create for your walkie.

 

The reason for me to choose the IFRR as a charity is because the help we got from Mary getting our rescue, Louie.
Louie is a black Golden retriever. Even though he is not a flatcoat, everyone accepted him as a flatcoat and he is now enjoying his new home with his new best flattie friends Perry and Freddie

We all had a great time on the Norwich walkies, 11 dogs at some point and we collected £10 for the IFRR.
A dog learned to swim, and everyone made new Friends.
