DotDot Family Day success!
Our annual DotDot Family Day took place on Saturday 06th July and it was a rip roaring success!
The day has become a firm favourite in the DotDotFamilys calendar and i couldn't have been prouder of the whole team this year - everyone manned their own stalls with lots of cheap or free activities for the kiddies - and the dog show was the best yet with 97 dogs registering and classes with up to 30 in some! Our guestimates were over 500 attendees throughout the day and a good 150 dogs popping in to say hello.
The show was judged by Andrew from Wicstun Vets, and he had some very tricky decisions to make!
We thank him for his time in judging and Groomed2Pawfection for sponsoring the rosettes and attending on the day!
Working with so many different people, businesses, stall holders, volunteers and of course our furry friends can sometimes be stressful - but the day genuinely went swimmingly and everyone's feedback has been brilliant!
Alongside the Dog Show, there was a live band all day (2nd year running being entertained by 'The Psychedelic Skiffle Band'!), DiDI Rugby, Weighton Rocks, 'Pearls Poppets' provided slime making, 'Mix, Fix & Go' were there with glitter face art, Pet Portraits, giant bubble bonanzas and of course 'The Magic Ball Man' entertained the children for hours!
The Stars infamous outside Bar & BBQ didn't fail to delight and we had 'MW Hedgehogs' and 'The MW CAP' (Community Autism Project) come along and provide tombolas and games whilst raising awareness for their causes.
It wouldn't be a DotDot Day without some doggy themed stuff - 'Taylors Pawsitive Training' showed our clients and the public some enrichment games and the Pocklington DotDot Team had their very own take on the classic 'Hook a Duck' game.... and very popular it was too! Who knew 'hook a poo' would be the star of the show!!
Some of our very talented DotDot team provided the most delicious and delightful cakes and sweet treats and of course thought creatively and provided a 'Decorate your own dog bone' biscuit for the kiddies.
Everyone gave their time, energy and efforts all to raise money for the 'Canine Parters' charity who wowed us with their demo showing just how invaluable their work is, and how the dogs assistance their partners to live a more independent life.
Altogether on the day we raised £765 - so a massive well done and thank you to everyone who came and supported us and of course to The Star, Sancton who allow us to use their venue each year and put alot of time and effort into the set up and tidy up thats involved too.
