Held on Streatham Common South on 5th September, Streatham Hill Vets proudly sponsored the event for another year, helping to raise money in aid of conserving and protecting Streatham Common. Organised by the Friends of Streatham Common organisation, this year’s theme was of James Bond.
Being an event far more entertaining than Crufts, owners dressed their dogs in 007 style fancy dress outfits, with prizes and treats handed out for best in class (and for fun) including prize for The Waggiest Tail and The Dog That Looks Most Like Its Owner.
There were eight judged classes, for dogs of all shapes and sizes.
- Best Puppy (11 months and under)
- Best Junior (12 months – 6 years)
- Golden Oldie (7 years and over)
- Fancy Dress – Theme James Bond Movies
- Best Junior Handler (under 16 years old)
- Best Rescue Dog
- Waggiest Tail
- Dog that looks most like its owner
In the James Bond class of winners, owners had really gone to town with some amazing outfits including a spy dog Chihuahua dressed in blue-tinted glasses and tuxedo, a Pomeranian in a tutu (From Russia with Love), a dog wrapped in foil complete with ray gun (Moonraker), and a dog with a toy cat strapped to it’s back (Pussy Galore). The finalist was a Bond Car (pram wrapped in gold) driven by a dog in bow tie, with the runners up consisting of a Dachshund dressed as Goldfinger and a dog wearing playing cards outfit and sporting a crown (Casino Royal).
The Rookery Café opposite the common was available for BBQ and refreshments and with music and over 12 stalls supporting the event (yours truly, Streatham Hill Vets being a supporter) there was plenty of services and doggie treats for all to share.
We would like to thank everyone for sharing their fur babies with us. We had an amazing time participating and an absolute blast for the whole day.
Congratulations to every who attended for making the event so special!
