Gympie Doggy Daycare

A special report by guest blogger Daniel Arkle (aka Danny Lagoon Pocket’s Rough Collie). A little background for you to set the scene.

Mud Pups animal sculptures

As a life long dog lover I have had my pooches immortalised over the years by photography, paintings and drawings, but last week I found another way, Mud Pups.

Gympie Show 2016

Not at all biased of course but we think the Gympie Show 2016 is the best country show going.  This year, it’s 128th year I might add, it runs 3 days from Thursday 12 May – Saturday 14 May. I hate to use that trusty old chestnut that there is something for everyone, but yup there
