Moomba Parade 2016

What a great day for the GSDCV in the 2016 Moomba parade as the King & Queen's courtiers. ~85,000 people lined St. Kilda road for the parade and all loved our dogs. Our 10 fabulous GSD's also loved every minute of it with lots of cheers down the route from the public. The dogs were very popular & perfect breed ambassadors - patient, entertaining and unphased during the excitement of the day. Thanks to all involved and those who made it happen.
Here's all the pics from our big day - there's lots more to it than the parade. Great chance to interact with the public and the dogs love it. Well done to all our team - Merran Hamilton & Kaiser, Gayle Johnston & Al, Jacinta Poole & Dizzy, Lisa Bateman and Indi, Nicki McDermott & Winnie, Chris Mayo & Merlin, Vince Ebejer & Jipcee, Sue Hounslow & Shiloh, Lyn McPherson & Shiraz, Dearne Jackson & Polly and helpers Grant Milne (video), Lin Milne (photographer), Donna Bradley (parade leader) and Mike Fajdiga (banner carrier) !
