Parkrun Critters and more snow

It seems as though there're more and more dogs being taken on the Parkrun each week. I'm still off from taking part in the Parkrun and still volunteering. Although I had another job last week, before the start and at the end, I took photos as well.

 A pretty young lady with one dog on a leash and the other in her shoulder bag 
 These two dogs were rearing to go !

Paddy, John's Jack Russell is permitted to run off-leash (she's a most obedient dog) 
Here's Paddy while Dad John is coming behind
A friendly Lab finished the race with his master
Tiger and his mistress, Marelize complete the 5km in under 36 minutes
These two dogs look like toys 
As I said: Paddy enjoys extreme privileges. She's even permitted in the "no pets allowed" restaurant
The owner's African Grey enjoying the many visitors to the Waffle Hut
Sunset over the mountains
Snow over the Southern Drakensberg last weekend
We met biker friends from Durban at Nottingham Road last Sunday
And last, but not least...
... a baboon strutting its stuff

I'm linking to Saturday Critters with Eileen here



  1. Animals are family too.
    Loved the sunset and the snow.

  2. Hello, Jo! I love all the cute dogs. Looks like they enjoyed the parkrun. I hope you are ok and recovering, volunteering is fun too. The baboon photos are cool. I love the views of snowcovered mountains. Gorgeous!
    Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  3. love the puppies, and that mountain shot

  4. A great assortment of critters. I love the huge picture of the young girl in the Parkrun. It does look like Paddy is a sweet and obedient dog.

  5. No shortage of Jack Russells there it seems. Bet the dogs really enjoy this. Snow!!! Guess it is still sort of winter there though. Keep warm Diane

  6. Hi Jo, sorry to hear you are still out of it, but it thankfully hasn't stopped you from takeing some nice photos.
    Take care, Gordon.
