There were 80 in all and Gromit hunting became a fun and popular pastime for the summer. If you saw a group of people standing together you could almost guarantee that a Gromit would be the centre of attention.
Of course there was also a reason for the production of so many Gromits...they will be auctioned and the funds raised will go to the Bristol Children's Hospital.
Sadly, the exhibition has almost come to an end, so all the Gromits have been gathered together for 'The Greatest Dog Show On Earth' until Sunday.
Of course, as we live so close to Bristol, we have done a bit of Gromit hunting ourselves. A few weeks ago we spent a fun Sunday hunting out and photographing Gromits. Bristol is a fabulous city to visit on a weekend and I almost felt as if I was on holiday! I am posting a taster for you here but if you are in the area and have a chance, why not visit the Dog Show before they are auctioned off? I heard a rumour that there is one more secret Gromit there which wasn't on the Gromit Trail!
