QV is running a series of movies on their lawn this summer with one screening dedicated to dogs, who can sit next to their owner's deck chair! The screening is to raise funds for The Lost Dog's Home, so bring your dog and enjoy the film.

Screening 'Best in Show'

Before the 8.30pm screening there will be a Best Dressed Competition at 7.30pm for the best, festively dressed dog! The film, 'Best in Show', is fittingly a mockumentary about dog owners entering their pets into a dog show.

Need some inspiration? Here's a Halloween costume we whipped up - we're currently brainstorming for Christmas!
