Dog days of sum­mer

Rutherglen Reformer - - Christmas Cheer - Jonathan Ged­des

There was paws for thought at Castlemilk Park re­cently.

The park was host­ing its pop­u­lar dog­gie day, and plenty of pups were on hand for it.

The event had been due to be held in early July, only to be post­poned due to bad weath­eron the day.

Richard Bolton, com­mu­nity wood­land of­fi­cer at Cas­sil­toun Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion, said: “It was a great wee event - we’d had to resched­ule from July 6, when the heav­ens opened.

“We had nine dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories with prizes, such as dog with the wag­gi­est tail, dog with the best child han­dler, most ap­peal­ing puppy, best res­cue dog and dog most like their owner.

“We had all sorts of breeds there, from Rot­tweil­ers to tiny ter­ri­ers and spaniels.

“It’s a good way to get peo­ple out and about, and re­mind them about clear­ing a path through the woods too.”
