Residents and employees at Bupa’s Old Gates Residential and Nursing Home, Livesey Branch Road, Feniscowles, Blackburn are looking forward to holding a dog show on Monday 28 September at 2pm, at the home’s Cherry Unit. RSPCA employee Ken Harrison will be judging the show, with categories including ‘best dog’ and ‘best bitch’. Residents, relatives and staff have been asked to bring in their pooches to take part in the ‘scruffs’ dog show. After watching an RSPCA television programme, residents have been knitting large and small blankets for the charity to keep sheltered animals warm. Ken will collect the blankets after the judging ceremony. Gail Downes, activity co-ordinator at Bupa’s Old Gates, says: “Our residents are looking forward to our ‘scruffs’ dog show. They have worked extremely hard on the animal blankets and will enjoy interacting with the dogs. We hope that this event will be a success and that everyone has a good time.”
