Today @ ECP was especially crowded with dog owners and their dogs . 
It was the doggies' sports day hosted by Singapore Kennel Club.
You can see dogs of all size ranging from the small cute chihuahua , toy poddle , shi tzu to the majestic looking golden
retriever , husky  and the intellegient Shetland Sheltie.

Sports activities like the agility , pole weaver , ball catching and sprint are organized for the dogs to take part.
Guest of honour , Mr K. Shanmugam (Minister for foreign Affairs and Minister for Law) , was there with his great dane 
to flag the start of the National Dog Walk and also participated in it.

At the end of the tiring walk for the dogs , a specially baked dog cake from US Doggie Bakery was used to celebrate Singapore Birthday  
and given to the tired dogs.

On my photography part , i was with only my 18-55mm kit lens , unlike others , which are  holding 80-200mm and 70-300mm lens ,
i obviously cant reach as far as them. I did not make a big fuss out of it , but instead went closer to the dogs to take the shot instead. It was a fun experience and there are occasions that the dog are camera shy and some was curious wanted to lick my camera. These experiences are more valuable and memorable =) .

Good job Doggies and Owners !!! 
It was really "Sun"ny day. My girlfriend and i were sunburnt !!
