Sunday might be a dog of a day in more ways than one for many northerners.
It’s a real dog’s day out for canines with hundreds expected to turn out to Bicentennial Park from 10am.
Tamworth Regional Council has invited humans to take their dog on a date – to meet up and socialise with more canines for a walk in the park – among a few other decidedly daggy dog activities.
They’re shouting a free feed and there’ar some other fun things your four-footed friend can take you to.
According to a spokesman some of Tamworth’s canine and pet
training, grooming, food and shelter retailers and supporters will sponsor some family-friendly competitions.
Little kids, and even bigger kids, can take part in handling skills and in obedience competitions.
There’s even a category where owners can come dressed up in costume with their mutt and there’ll be a race to find the biggest and smallest dogs on the park.
The most colourful and hotly contested competition might just be the look-alike category – where owners and dogs can face up to each other for a mirror image show. Judges want to find the two-legged human who looks most like his or her four-footed friend.
Owners have been warned to bring their dogs on a lead – otherwise it could turn into a dogfight in more ways than one.
