Dogs all set for the catwalk

It was dress-rehearsal time for these wannabe models who are set to strut their stuff on the catwalk – or should that be dog walk!

For the past few months the canine cuties have been hard at work preparing for their big night.

And on Friday at the Ritz Carlton the four-legged superstars will be centre stage at Doggiewood – The Humane Society’s fashion show.

“They’ve come a long way since we began,” said Dog trainer Kenneth Morgan who has been putting the animals through their paces.

“It’s been tough for both the dogs and their handlers but they have responded really well. Let’s just hope they get it right on the night.”

The annual event has become a favourite gathering in the Cayman calendar.

Not only does it raise much needed funds for the Society but it also showcases the dogs who are desperate for a new home.

Organiser Susan Gabruch said: “If we can find homes for a few of the dogs in the show it will be a job well done.

“The work we’ve done just shows how all the animals can be trained and can become the perfect addition to any family.”

The show starts at 6.30pm on Friday and with the animals expected on stage around 8.30pm.

Humane Society director Jackie Stirling said: “We have been amazed with the fantastic response we have had and once again the event is a sell-out.

“Everyone involved would like to say a massive thank-you to all our loyal supporters and friends.

“We really want to make this a night to remember and hopefully find some homes for the lovely animals.”
