Our Streatham Hill Hospital team joined the amazing Dog Show
On Sunday the 17th of September, our caring Streatham Hill Vets team attended the fantastic Tooting Common Fun Dog Show, an event organised by the Friends of Tooting Common. A lot of fun was had by the vets and pets alike as we all enjoyed seeing our patients and their lovely owners as well as meeting new people and their pawsome dogs!
Despite the rain, around 300 people attended the Dog Show whilst 112 dogs of all sizes, breeds, background as well as characters were entered in the competition, many of them winning 1st class and sometimes more than once!
The mayor of Wandsworth, Juliana Annan, as well as representatives of the Wandsworth Council Animal Welfare Team, the Parks Police, Battersea Cats and Dogs Home, Strays of Greece, the Dogs of Tooting Common and the Furzedown Community Network all joined the celebration.
All the dogs present at the show won our hearts, and it was such a tough decision for Vet Helena and the other judges to truly determine who the winners were. Here they are for each category:
- Most Handsome Dog
- Prettiest bitch
- Junior Handler (up to 8 years old)
- Young Handler (8 to 16 years old)
- Best puppy (up to 18 months)
- Best fancy dress
- Best veteran (over 8 years)
- Best trick
- Best rescue
- Waggiest tail
Thank you to everybody who came to visit us at the Streatham Hill stand and entered our raffle. Here are the winners:
- 1st winner 1 Year VIP: Erica Mcilmoyne
- Second Prize Hamper: Catherine Mayo
- Third Prize Champagne: Sue Pearson
This day was so incredible and each dog and their owner so adorable and friendly. Vet Helena, Hospital Manager Luke and the team at Streatham Hill Vets had a wonderful time and cannot thank you enough for coming.
We hope to see you soon for the Streatham Dog Show 2023 on the 24th of September and for many, many other shows to come! Thank you all very much for coming and for making this day extra special!
Don’t forget that if your pet needs us, we are open 24 hours a day at Streatham Hill Hospital, where we will take the best care of your beloved friend.
