Pooches on parade in Mount Isa Pet Day

When it came to displaying the best in show for Mount Isa Pet Day’s first pet fashion judging, Mount Isa City Council organisers inexplicably kept calling the stage a “catwalk”.

But there were no furry felines in sight it was all about the canines so it really should have been a “dog-walk”.

Whether it was a catwalk or dogwalk, it was all a cakewalk for beautiful Chevy the Rottweiler who was best dressed dog with her pretty hat while the Saunders sisters Payton and Madison won the owner-and-dog duo with their devils outfits contrasting with the angel costume worn by their dog Georgie.

There was a serious message as Mayor Joyce McCulloch explained.

“It’s all about responsible pet ownership and Council, the vets and Paws Hoofs and Claws are there to educate and solve any issues,” the Mayor said.

Around a 1000 people came to enjoy the day and take advantage of the free microchipping vouchers, discounted desexing, giveaways, food and drink and fashion show.
