We promised you more information about the DRC Dog Show with a Difference, and true to our word, here you are.
First off, many thanks to Marcus who designed such a wonderful poster, which we hope you will share with all your friends. It gives a good idea of what we will be up to on the day, and conveys the spirit of fun which we are sure will be present on the day.
We are planning on starting the event at 11H00, when display and “taster sessions” of agility, truffle hunting etc will start. People will have the chance to visit our friends at Cancer Support France, eat some lunch (there is a kitchen on site and we plan to sell snacks and cold drinks), buy some bric-a-brac and perhaps have your pet portrait taken in Marketa’s pop up photo studio. Plus of course register for the competitions that will take place throughout the afternoon.
Regarding the bric-a-brac stall, we already have a couple of offers of things to sell. So yes, we are once again collecting your unwanted items. The longer you can keep them the better, as storage can be an issue, but we would be grateful for any donations.
We are very excited about the event. Having it in a tailor made location should aid with many aspects of the day. For instance the club has permanent kennels where dogs can wait while their owners are doing activities that require two hands! This means that anyone with a reactive dog can have a bit of a relax, not always easy when your dog is stressed.
If you would like to help with any aspect of the day, volunteers are always welcome. Nearer the time we will put out an appeal for cakes and other lunchtime edibles in the hope that this will help to raise some additional funds.
All money raised will go to improve the lives of the dogs at the ScPA Carcassonne, which is about 15 minutes drive from the Club Canin at Trèbes. The refuge will be open and who knows we might even have a visit or two!
As you will probably have guessed, this will not be the last blog on the subject. But we hope it is enough to encourage you to save the date!
