Residents from Sedgley Court care home in Dudley welcomed local canines to their first ever Dog Show recently, in honour of National Dog Day.
Dog owners from the community brought their pups to compete in five categories; Best Dressed, Cutest, Happiest Soul, Best Behaved and Judges Favourite.
A panel of judges, made up of residents from Sedgley Court, scored each contestant as they showcased their best talents and tricks. 88-year-old resident, judge and dog lover, Eileen Porter, said,
‘It was so wonderful to see all the dogs together; they all behaved very well. My personal favourite was Fudge, the big fluffy one!’
The winners of each category were awarded a certificate, rosette and a puppy-friendly goody bag to take home. Amy-Leigh Arnold, the Home Manager at Sedgley Court, said,
‘Our Dog Show was a huge success! The residents really enjoyed being judges for the day and meeting all the tail-wagging contestants.
‘We’re always looking for ways to bring our community together for a bit of fun. We’d like to thank everyone who came to take part and we can’t wait to do it all again next year.’
Residents from Sedgley Court are also inviting people in the area to their weekly ‘Cinema Saturdays’. Every Saturday from 11:30, all are welcome to take in a movie in the home’s plush cinema room and enjoy lots of delicious refreshments.
