Gerringong canines join in the Christmas spirit

The Gerringong Dog Park Group held their annual K9 Christmas party on the hill on Sunday afternoon.

The gathering was well attended by both dogs and their owners.

The event is structured as a dogs day out with their families for some fun, socialisation and to make use of the fabulous off leash area on the hill of Gerringong headland.

Between 60 – 70 dogs made their way to the party, all mixing, running around and getting on well together throughout the afternoons festivities, with around 100 of their human counterparts.

There were dog treats to be enjoyed, plus the usual festive treats for humans, but the highlight of the day was the array of colourful Christmas costumes adorning most of the dogs.

Organisers wished to thank official judge, Sandra McCarthy, who had the difficult job of selecting the winners of the various categories.

They also wanted to extend thanks to those who donated prizes to the event: Albion Park and Gerringong Veterinary Hospitals, Gerringong Pet Accommodation, Michael and Jennifer Hill and Mecure Gerringong Resort.
