VetShop at the Nambour Show!

Recently VetShop was invited to be part of the inaugural Nambour Dog Show. Nambour is a little town situated in west of Sunshine Coast, very close to the Hinterland. It is also the birth place of the current Prime Minister of Australia, Kevin Rudd.

John Sherri, the Chief Steward, who was responsible for organising the Dog Show approached us to find out if we could lend any support.

We were more than delighted to.

Over 450 dogs flooded the showfield that morning, in all shapes and sizes. It was a rather unique scene on the field which usually host weekly Rugby matches. You will see some samples of pictures of the dog show, but check out vetshoponline photo album for the full version.

It was a perfect morning for any show to be held, bright and sunny. Dr. Mark and I were Tent-thumb-VetShopLab.jpgamongst the first to arrive to set up our marquee which was just next to the stewards' stall.

The show's organiser were surprised with the number of entries received, some came from as far as 200km (120 miles) away.

We gave out heaps of brochures about who we are, products we range, heartworm, flea and tick control educational printed materials.

The response that we received was quite overwhelming. Although many had not realised we'  existed or worse, that purchasing OTC pet meds online is possible. We received a lot of entries in the small contest that we held during the show.

I managed to shoot tonnes of pictures and videos of the show. We were particularly keen sherly-uluru-thumb-VetShopLab.jpg  in cheering for Sheri and her dogs, Matilda and Uluru. Both are Australian Cattle dogs. Sheri consistently breeds champions Cattle Dogs. Not long ago she received a certificate for a pup that she bred and it won something big in New Zealand. Congrats!

A pure bred Doderman stole the judges' heart and ran away with the Best in Show award. Too bad I did not get the chance to snap a few pictures of finalist competing in the final round.

Overall, we had lots of fun. The feeling to reach out to the community was fantastic.
