Scooby day 2012

The 24th of June was the day for Scooby day 2012! After months of hard work, preparations and deadlines, finally the day came that we were all looking forward to.
When we arrived at the stables early in the morning it seemed it would not all go according to plan. Although we were hoping for good weather, the sun had decided to stay behind in Spain. It was raining cats and dogs all the time so we decided to built the stands inside instead of outside. But, positive people as we are, we still had lots of fun doing it.
Luckily a lot of visitors had the same attitude since it has been very busy and it had been worth every effort! It was a very special day with lots of visitors, and even more dogs! And while the dogs were running around, the people could see the stands or enjoy a drink on the outside terrace (covered of course!)
We had a lot of stands, one of them being the Scooby shop. Lots of great prices could be won at the wheel of fortune, and the auction came up with some good items too. The highlight of the day was the walk through the Soesterduinen, natural sand dunes, where both dogs and owners could participate.
It was very special to hear so many languages spoken. Visitors came from many countries to show how much Scooby means to them. And they show it in the many donations, the truck going back to Scooby took a lot of useful goods back to Spain. And all the stands combined raised a considerable amount of money, all for the benefit of the animals at Scooby.
In short, it was a very successful day and a lot of good has been done to benefit the dogs. We would like to thank the visitors and people running the stands for their donations, hard work and dedication to Scooby. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did and that we will see you again at the next Scooby day. We are already looking forward to it!
