Roe Trainard

Today we appointed a new VKC Proven Trainer. Roe Woodford. Here she is getting the customary slapping from some of the other trainards in the Dog Park.

Most new trainers giggle and look embarrassed when they do this but as you can see, this presented no problem at all for Roe. Having been a super model and fought off the girl with the Ninja Eyelashes, she jumped straight in and fought back.

Thanksgiving Party

The VKC Thanksgiving Party was at Canis Beach this year. People, dogs, penguins and bears gathered to dance in the agility area and stuff themselves full of turkey.

Cats can come too.

Dad, Lail and Rosanna hatching a plot for Dad to steal the turkey before the cat gets it.

Rosanna and Erie fine tuning the plot.

Lail: yessir, i can boogie!

LilWitch does the funky turkey strut.

Blu: 15 years of ballet school and I’m dancing in the dog park?

Dad, giving it some Night Fever

I even got Logan dancing (-:

I think this is Brocair, dancing with the Dobie

At the end of the party LilWitch lifts Erie onto the table to draw the prize winner from the hat, but he’s distracted by his chance to get the Turkey. The prize winners can wait!

Eve and Rich Tie the Knot

Eve Compton and Richd Tomsen have been partners for ages, recently they decided to make it official, or legal, or whatever it is. They found a vicar willing to take an affordable bribe perform the ceremony and we were all invited to the church and then to the knees up, bender reception afterwards.

You remember how at Lil’s wedding the bride groom had a whole gang of best men? Well Eve had an even bigger gang of bridesmaids. They were all gathered in a little tent, making the final adjustments to the plan of attack to their outfits.

When the bridesmaids came into the church, they had to skate down the aisle.

They were expected to display their prowess on ice skates and gain sufficient speed on their run up the nave to be able to slide to a halt and spray the vicar with ice chips.
Of course if you could see the heap of arms and legs behind the camera, you’d know that things don’t always go according to plan.

Meanwhile Eve is making her way from the tent to the Church.
“‘Urry up Evie,” says Tanya, “else it’ll all be over by the time we get there.”

Back in the Church the little birds are hopping around in the transept and bathing in the font…

…and climbing all over St Francis.
Someone will probably have to clean him up later.
After a while makes it into the Church, leaps over the heap of bridesmaids and slides to a halt at the alter beside Rich, who is looking a little grey, probably just the worry.

Eve and Rich then exchange vows:

“I pledge to you that yours will be the name I cry out in the middle of the night, and yours will be the eyes I look into in the morning.  I pledge to you the first drink of my cola and the first bite of my burger.”

And the Vicar pronounces them husband and wife.

Shortly after that the Millercam batteries ran out and I couldn’t take any more photos, so I left Rosanna in charge while Logan and I popped down the corner shop to get some more. The remainder of the photos were taken by Rosanna.

Eve and Rich had the first dance together as man and wife.

And then everyone got out on the dance floor with them.

After everyone had been dancing for a bit they’d worked up a bit of an appetite, so it was time for the cake.

Look out Rich! She’s got a knife!

The bears and dogs all take cover in the Bear Lair and keep their heads down.

But there’s nothing to worry about. Rich clearly has plenty of experience and knows exactly what to do, which in this case, is rez a box to stand on and help Evie cut the cake.

Later, after everyone has eaten and danced and had loads to drink, Rich discreetly makes sure that Eve is holding the bouquet (and not the knife) as she throws it back over her shoulder to be caught by one of the bridesmaids.

Thanks for having us Eve and Rich.
We hope you’ll be very happy (-:


Many thanks to Hosanna for taking photos, you can see her whole set on flickr.


These are the winners of the VKC Easter Egg Hunt.  These are the really smart people that solved all the clues, found all the eggs and worked out the phrase correctly.

They won the amazing LogSpark Dog Race System and a Fat Pack of LogSpark Dog Baths.

Logan and me presenting the prizes to Sandy Kiranov.


The slogan was…

“VKC Dogs are intelligent, natural, alive and an avatar’s best friend.”

Tone Plays Again

Day two of the Virtual Kennel Club Anniversary Celebrations and Tone Uriza was back for another gig.

A Tone’s-eye view of the dancers and audience.

Dad dancing with Blu.

Logan dancing with Rico – you know, it’s pretty hard to make her do all that fancy footwork… and not knock anyone else over.

Punky Solo, strutting her stuff.

Eve Compton, groovin’

Change Partners …Logan dances with Dad

… Blu dances with Rico.

…and Niju Zarco continues to shake his thang.

The Tonettes came armed with rulers and left Tone all a quiver.
