Virtual Dog Show to Help Australian Kennels in Fire Danger

With a permition to crosspost I am retyping the news from friend Sue Smith from Australia:

"Some of you have probably heard of the fires we are having in Victoria, Australia.
330,000 hectares burned plus 750 homes and over 170 lives lost.
Brought home to us the loss of a family and their racing malamutes.
We are trying to collect as much money as we can to help support the kennels lost. Maybe some of you would like to enter our 'show'."

INTERNATIONAL VIRTUAL DOG SHOW:

a) All money raised will be shared among our members who are victims of the bushfires

b) A catalogue of 'the show' will be given to each of our affected members as a sign of the support of their friends

c) Copies of the catalogue will also be available on the websited.. The catalogue will simply show breed, dog's name and owner's name. Why not make an entry in the name of your favourite dog that may no longer still be with you?

e) ANY dog is eligible to enter as there will be special classes for "dogs from mixed marriages" and "rainbow bridge" (dearly departed dogs). Enter as many dogs as you like!
