Hundreds of dogs, with their owners, converged in Simon’s Town for the Jock Just Nuisance Dog Walk on Sunday 1 April.

Celebrating the birthday and life of Just Nuisance, the legendary Great Dane of Simon’s Town, this year’s event featured several new additions to the annual dog walk. This included prizes in the categories “Best-dressed Dog” and “Dog-owner Lookalike”.

Melandri Kapp’s dog Minki took best-dressed honours and Dalené Pretorius and her dogs, Sodee and Bentley, stole the dog-owner lookalike category from under the noses of some very stiff competition. Each received a R1500 cash prize and a Jock Dog Food hamper, as did Lauren McPherson and her dogs Leila and Isla in the lucky draw.

Another successful addition was the presence of photographer Dog Meets Girl, who took some snappy portraits of several dogs and their owners, with 10% of her proceeds donated to the non-profit dog rescue organisation Tears. The involvement of Tears as the beneficiary of this year’s event was welcomed by all, with funds raised for their Pimp My Kennel project. In addition to the R20 000 donated by Jock Dog Food, Tears raised an additional R10 000 at the event.

The Western Province Marching Band Association’s band provided a festive atmosphere, while the Navy Canine Unit’s display of their working dogs left many a dog owner in awe of what a well-trained dog can do.

Jock marketing and sales executive, Liezel van Bergen, says Jock would like to give a big tail-wagging thank you to the community of Simon’s Town for welcoming the event with open arms.
