DOUBLE BAY DOG DAY 2018
WHAT A DAY!
THANK YOU to everyone who came along & helped us raise awareness about pet adoption.
We had so much fun with you!
The day kicked off with some DOGA hosted by Hot Dog Yoga (mats provided by Yoga Everywhere). This was such a cute session, which allowed owners to have a stretch with their furry friends.
Followed by some doggie socialites who arrived ‘fashionably late’ 😉
The Rescue Adoption Parade was a great opportunity for the rescue groups to raise awareness about all the amazing work they do + introduce the dogs available for adoption. We had over six different rescue groups get involved!
Soon after, the judges pulled up a chair and got ready to judge our Best Dog Trick / Best Dog Costume Competition. A huge thank you to the following judges for getting involved:
• Christa Billich ( Housewives of Sydney)
• Dr Jess (Vet HQ)
• Ryan Anderson (Aussie Dog Guy)
• Katherine O’Regan (Double Bay + Districts Business Chamber)
First up in our competition, we had ‘Best Dog Costume’ competition, one dog entered himself as a ‘Doggie Long Legs’.
Best Dog Trick was a lot of fun. We had one dog ‘get excited’ when it came to getting a treat. Ha ha.
We had a live performance by Adam Katz, where he selected random dogs from the crowd and did a custom rap-off about them! That was pretty cool. 😎
Are you feed for a ‘naww’ moment!? We love this adoption story! Bullwinkle is a rescue dog from Best Friends For Ever Rescue Illawarra, she came along on the day looking for a fur-ever home. An elderly Double Bay resident who lived across the road from the park, decided to pop by to see what all the barking-fun was about 😃. He met Bullwinkle which reminded him of his previous long-term dog who meant the world to him. ♥️
The man said, “If I come back at the end of the day and Bullwinkle is still here… it’s meant to be”.
Bullwinkle has now found his fur-ever home with this man!

& the Petflair Fashion Parade was a whole lot of fun too!
Did you know you can get swimwear, towel + beachbags with your pet printed on it!? 25% of profits gets donated to Pound Paws ☺️
To wrap up a super fun day, we headed to The Sheaf, where they hosted the Official Double Bay Dog Day After Party! Dogs were greeted with a red carpet arrival and pup-arazzi ready to take their social shots!
They were then treated to a 5-star dining experience, thanks to Happy Healthy Dog & then spoilt with a FurFresh pup-sicle. Humans enjoyed a delicious coffee paw-tini!
