2007 Dog Show

The Dog Show is an annual fundraising event, which was such a success last year, that it had to be moved to a bigger site where it was even more successful. It was held on Sunday the 18th March, with all proceeds going to CIKA. Dr Anne Dynon, a CIKA committee member, organised the event with her friendly staff at the Flemington Veterinary Hospital. Here is Anne’s report.

Fifty-one dogs of all ages, sizes, breeds and colours were entered into the show, on a beautiful, sunny day, with crystal clear skies and a soft breeze.  Our judges, Ms Betty Harding and Mr Ted Taplin, had a tough time choosing winners, but they managed to do a fabulous job.  “Murray” the Scottish Terrier won ‘Top Dog of Show’, awarding his proud parents a David Jones voucher.  At a close second, came “Maggie” the West Highland Terrier, winning herself $100 worth of veterinary treatment at Flemington Veterinary Hospital. T hird prize was won by “Leo” the Bichon Frieze, who received a free heartworm injection.  There were various other categories of prize winning dogs, and every participant went home with a prize and show bag containing over $90 worth of goodies.

CIKA member, Kate Benholz, baked and sold her fantastic cakes, while the Flemington Rotary Club put on a mouth-watering sausage sizzle.  CIKA members ran raffles and Harry Benholz was very busy taking fabulous photos, which were sold to participants.  Mario Cassar provided the wonderful background music.

Thanks to all our sponsors who made the day possible: Advance, Dermcare, Happy Yappers, Merial, Pfizer, Royal Canin, Therapon, G.E. Finance, Bob the Butcher, Michael Tatlow Pharmacy, Forte Dodge, City West Water and Bernard’s Magic Shop!  Thanks also to the Flemington Rotary Club, to all CIKA members who helped, and to the staff of the Flemington Veterinary Hospital.

Thanks also to all our participants, who made the effort to spruce up their canines and come out to join us for the whole show.  We made a total of $1350!

A big thank you to Flemington Veterinary Hospital for their continuing support of CIKA.
