On 27th June a Fun Day being held in Herefordshire in aid of Soi Dog Foundation, Thailand’s leading dog and cat welfare charity, will attempt to break the current Guinness World Record for “Most dogs wearing a bandana in one place”.
The Fun Day event is being held on grounds surrounding the Hope and Anchor Inn in Ross-on-Wye, and will start at 10.30am, with the record attempt scheduled for 1pm.
Organisers Isabel Van De Ven and Zat Lewis, UK supporters of the Thai charity, said “This is purely being staged as part of a fun, family day out in the countryside. We’ll have lots of activities for the kids, as well as pub food, bric a brac, bottle stalls, tea room, healthy living stall, face painting, dog boutique, dog shows, dog agility demonstrations, a luxury raffle with first prize as a trip to Thailand, and lots more for all the family. We encourage everyone in the vicinity of Ross-on-Wye to come along, and bring your adult dog or dogs with you, for a day you’ll never forget.”
The current Guinness World Record for most dogs wearing a bandana in one place stands at 764, and Ms Van De Ven is hoping to break this by attracting more adult dogs and their owners to the event.
She said, “Anyone in the area with an adult dog can come along, have a great day out, and be a Guinness World Record holder by the time they get home!”, added Ms Van De Ven. “Admission is £1, but it’s free to participate in the record attempt. All we require is that if you want to take part, you will need to register on arrival, pick up your free dog bandana (limited numbers available), have your dog verified as an adult, and briefly checked by a vet to ensure your pet is in good health. That’s it.”
