Prize Pet Show!

Hedon Care Home’s Canine Celebration

Aside from Britain’s worldwide reputations for courage in adversity, prowess in innovation and the financial hub of the western world, we Brits are universally known for our love of our pets. In all breeds, shapes and sizes virtually every household has a four-footed friend. For many of us in later years this all changes when we find new living arrangements in a residential care home. Magdalen Park Nursing Home in Hedon has, however, recently taken a new initiative to address this sensitive issue.

“We recognize,” says Magdalen Events Organiser, Steph Ashton, “that residents keeping a whole variety of personal pets is not feasible here, so we looked at the situation a different way. We really want to be part of the community, maintaining relationships between our residents and their carers, friends and families, so we invited them to bring their pets here to visit us for a special Prize Pet Show recently.

“We wanted the event to be properly organized and professionally judged so I asked around our residents’ visitors and so many of them recommended the local Haven Veterinary Practice as their first choice for pet care, so I asked them if they could spare the time to help us with our special day.”

“I thought this was such a great idea,” says Haven Vet, Pippa Kaplowich, “that I didn’t hesitate to volunteer. I even took my Labrador, Tarquin along to meet the other pets. This was no serious “Best In Show”. It was fun day for residents and local people of all ages, especially when Chewy the Rabbit escaped from his owner and everyone was chasing around the lawn to grab him. I hope this great day for the residents and community will be an annual event and we will be proud to be part of it.”
