I WAS so pleased that you were able to profile the fantastic charity dog show and open day at Coopers Vets on The Ridge recently.
This was not only a dog show, but a dog show with a difference. On hand were Paul and Patience Cooper and their professional team to show animal lovers the behind the scenes in practice (using fluffy toys, of course, as patients).
I found the experience most enjoyable and most informative. As an animal lover and dog walker, I was able to bump into a good number of others at the dog show who share my passion.
Yes, this was more than just a dog show and open day.
It was a really good community event with many people enjoying the excellent weather.
Well done to all concerned at the practice and, indeed, the organisers of the dog show, the Hastings & St Leonards Canine Society.
Looking forward to next year already.
