Dogs Day Out - Dogs and Owners take over the Menage
News & Pictures of our Dogs Day Out Competition held February 23rd 2013
“Dogs Day Out"
Well the "Dogs Day Out" was not only a success, it actually exceeded our expectations. In the incredible heat, we still had over 70 people register their dogs and the turn out in some of the competitions was amazing. For example, in the 'Best Cross Breed Event" I counted eighteen dogs with their handlers. It was just fantastic. We had doggy related stalls, as well as 'Animal Aid', 'Oscar's law' and 'Save the Bears' and it was great to help support their causes. Of course the day could not have gone ahead without the hard work and dedication of club members and I thank each and everyone of them for their input. Everything went according to plan and the day ran so smoothly. With our two lovely qualified judges Meg & Dot who kindly spent the day in the hot sun to judge each event.
Could I please thank the following people- Liisa for her amazing skills with co-ordinating the events, organising gifts & raffle prizes and keeping the competitions running smoothly as well as all the organising prior (huge job), Stefan for his impeccable M.C. Skills, Vicki for organising registrations and financial affairs along with Victoria and Bianca helping out, selling raffles tickets, blind auction, guess dog biscuits in the jar. Merja for just doing everything possible behind the scenes (as always) - the stuff none of us think about, Samantha helping where ever we needed help throughout the day as she always does,
Ryan and Victoria for running the BBQ & along with Gary, also helping with the back up. Sharon, Bianca and Catherine for keeping the ponies happening in that incredible heat, Trish for running a stall selling home made doggy treats, Andrew for running the agility course all day, Tegan for helping out at agility course, Roz & Brooke for making the smiley face biscuits.
