Sunday 9th April was an exciting day for the Mad Paws Pack as we hosted our first community event in Blenheim Park, Sydney. It was amazing to see so many of you down there and if you couldn't be there, don't worry – you can find out all about what happened now!
We had an incredible day, starting bright and early with the Channel 7 Sunrise team coming to report live from the event during the course of the morning! It was great to meet James and the team and we had lots of fun but now know why people in showbiz say never work with animals after Darcy spat out our handmade carob easter egg live on air! Typical!
From the moment the event began, we had an absolute blast and loved getting to put faces to names of some of our existing owners and sitters and also spreading the word about our amazing community to new people! The day was full of treats and wagging tails from dogs of all shapes and sizes! We even had some clever pooches on two legs joining us for the day!
Whether they were super skilled or just a really good at giving it a go, lots of the puppers at the Mad Paws Easter Fair had a go on our agility equipment – with varying degrees of success! One thing's for sure though, it kept the humans entertained to watch dogs of all breeds testing their skills! We're not sure who got the loudest cheers – the ones who were successful or those who tripped and rolled!
Many of our party guests enjoyed striking a pose in our Pawtrait Corner with the help of some props here and there! There was lots of whistling and bribing with treats from our photographers to get the pooches looking in the right direction as the camera flashed! If you had your photograph taken, keep an eye on your inbox as the photos will be whizzing their way to you this week – it was so popular it'll take us a couple of days to sort through and get them out but they're coming, we promise!
The tent for free nail clipping from our friends at PETstock had a queue all day long and we even had a Blys masseuse join us for the day to give free massages to our human guests, although some plucky pooches did their best to get involved! A doggy celebration cake from Sparkle Cupcakery in Sydney set mouths drooling and by the looks on the doggo's faces it was a big hit!
All in all, we had an aboslutely fantastic day and from the feedback on the day, it seems our party guests did too. We're really looking forward to organising our next event and you'll be the first to know when we do!
Remember, if you've got your own parties to go to, book a Mad Paws sitter for your pet!
