Pup Aid 2010, September 19th
The beautiful setting of Stanmer House and Gardens rocked to the sound of top local bands and a chorus of woofs & barks as 2010's Pup Aid bow wowed dog friendly Brighton. The celebrity-judged fun dog show organised by UK TV’s favourite, Marc the Vet, was created to help raise awareness of the suffering caused to puppies and their parents by puppy farming. The pooch and people partying included fun dog show classes such as 'Most glamorous 6 legs' and Scruffts 'Handsomest Dog'. Those feeling peckish could snap up gourmet treats from top Brighton restaurant Due South or a scrumptious afternoon tea from dog friendly MetroDeco, who had both decamped to Stanmer to join in the fun. A veritable constellation of stars gathered to lend their support by judging the dog show classes and making donations to the raffle and auction, although the true stars of the day were undoubtedly all canine. The Gibson guitar signed by dog loving musicians [including Liam Gallagher and Paul Weller] being auctioned by celebrity auctioneer Mark Stacey didn’t quite reach its reserve price, but never fear puppies and music lovers, there would be another chance to snap up this fabulous piece of pop ephemera, whilst supporting Pup Aid, at Bonhams later in the year
