The Sweetheart of the Year competition was the most popular event and the day’s judges, Jim Haklin, and Marianna from www.LaCasadeFido, certainly had their work cut out, but after appreciable deliberation the winner was Mocha, and Kim Cable was presented with a lovely bouquet of roses.
There were approximately 80 people attending, and those who were dogless cheered on their special favourites. There were no “accidents” and no fights – dogs tails wagged spiritedly and mere humans smiled a lot. MC Rachel did a great job despite a malfunctioning mic, with husband Edgar being “spot on” with the music for those parading pooches – which inspired one gentleman to start to remove his sports shirt, and our esteemed judge Jim H to bop with a previously unknown dancing talent.
Many of you had rescued dogs – please write to [email protected] with your stories, and a photo, and we’ll put them on a “doggy in the window” on Paws & Claws…Not rescued? We’ll also include stories from how you acquired your “best friend”.
So far P&C has spayed/neutered 40 animals – the criteria is they must be street animals or belong to locals who cannot afford to have them fixed. They can be taken to any of the participating vets – see Paws & Claws for details. The money raised on Sunday now means another 40 cats/dogs can be spayed/neutered. Thank you all !
And thanks to the volunteers for their time and effort in assisting the P&C team, you know who you are and you did a great job! And photo credits to Ross Cable – thanks Ross !
