For those of you who haven’t been on this site’s Events Page, here is a date for your diaries.
On June 4th La Petite Pépinière in Caunes Minervois is hosting a fundraising day to benefit refugees, and Dog Rescue Carcassonne (and hence the SPA) is invited along! We (well, Jane and her team) are organising a dog show, in which you and your dog can take part. There are a number of different categories from Longest Ears to Waggiest Tail and just about everything inbetween.
There will be prizes and rosettes and the Mayor of Caunes Minervois will be the judge.
The dog fun starts at 14H30, but the event lasts all day, with lots of other non dog-related activities. There is food available on site too, so you really can make a day of it. Yes, of course dogs are welcome throughout. You can pre-register for any event by contacting Jane at email@example.com (in either English or French) but you can also enter on the day, if you prefer. We hope to see lots of our ex- SPA dogs there. We all know that rescue dogs are the best, so now is our chance to prove it. Naturally more up-market pooches will be just as welcome. I wonder if we will be able to tell who’s who!
The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed that July 4th is also the first Sunday of the month. This means that the SPA is open in the afternoon, and if you are currently dogless or have room in your home for another pooch, you could always pop in and see the dogs who are waiting patiently. Who knows perhaps one of them will win a rosette at a future dog show!
Here is more about the event.
