For the love of dogs, pet humans will have fun in Lennox Head this weekend at the annual Dogs of Lennox pooch show.

Organizer Brooke Ellis says the K9 event is all about bringing the community together for a fun time, while raising money for a good cause. ‘This year we are supporting Guide Dogs Australia; an event for the people, by the people, to help other people – a wonderful day all round.’

Entry into the show is $2 per dog, and all proceeds go towards helping provide more people with the life changing support of a Guide Dog.

‘We also have many local businesses on board helping fill our goody bags for all the prize winners’, says Brooke.

‘Our categories are open to all ages, though we have one special category for the older dogs (10+ years) and we are expecting to see a lot of fun frocks and outfits for the Best Dressed category.’

Categories also include: Best Trick, Waggiest Tail, Golden Oldie (10yrs +) and Best Pawshake.

The Dogs of Lennox will be held this Saturday, June 1 from 9.15am.

Registrations can be filled out online at www.dogly.com.au or in person on the day up until 9am.
