Dog Lovers Invited to Attend Nelson SPCA’s Dogs’ Day Out 2014

Nelson SPCA is calling all local dog owners and their canine friends to join in the fun and festivities at Dogs’ Day Out 2014.

Nelson SPCA Event Coordinator, Summer Marvin, says this year’s event will feature a variety of attractions.

“Dogs’ Day Out is all about having a great time, so we encourage local dog lovers to treat their four-legged friends to a fun day out,” says Summer.

“There’s a host of festivities for everyone to enjoy, including the popular dog show (featuring Prettiest Girl, Best Dressed and Golden Oldie), a dog agility demonstration by Nelson Dog Training Club, a Dress-A-Thon and best dressed toy animal for the kids.

“There will also be a range of business stalls, a bouncy castle, face painting, delicious food and fantastic prizes up for grabs - including a year’s supply of K9+ natural health supplements from O2B Healthy.”

Dogs’ Day Out 2014 is sponsored by O2B Healthy, Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Nelson More FM 92.8 and The Leader. Proceeds from the event will go to the Nelson SPCA - providing care and shelter to animals in need.

With the election won, it’s time to find jobs for the boy. David Seymour is the Act Party’s latest scrounger to be rewarded by the National Party, and not only with a seat in Parliament. This time around, a couple of parliamentary Undersecretary posts in education and regulatory reform have been thrown in, plus an annual salary of $175,000 while he learns the ropes. Shouldn’t Seymour at least be put on a 90 day trial before he gets his hands on that sort of serious moolah?

It would be for his own good, really. At this rate, Act is never going to learn how to make its own way in the world More>>
