Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : September 17 2008
16 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, September 18, 2008 MB NEWS Just a pawfect day Brownie the maltese (above) is unconcerned by the rain while Chloe, a cavalier king charles (left), gets a cuddle from her owner Brooke Dodson, 14. IT was raining cats and dogs at PLC Croydon when the school hosted its annual pet show. While the weather was miserable, it gave some pets like Brownie the chance to parade stylish rainwear. PLC's Year 9 students or- ganised the event to raise money for Guide Dogs NSW/ACT -- one of the school's charities of choice for more than 50 years. Teacher and pet show or- ganising committee chair Thea McLean said the students particularly en- joyed meeting a guide dog and his trainer. ''Despite the rain, students, family, teachers and pets had a fantastic day as they worked hard to raise money for the char- ity,'' she said. ''It's fantastic for the students to be involved in a programme that gives them a tangible idea of where the money goes when they meet the pups and guide dogs later on.''
