MOST 11-year-olds would love just having a movie night for their birthday, but Thea Campbell is organising a Doggie Dinner Movie Night to beat the world record attempt for the most number of dogs at a dog grooming lesson.

Thea said the idea started with taking a dog on a date.

“The idea to beat the world record started from reading the Guinness Book of World Records. I need to have 365 dogs at the dog grooming lesson to smash the record. I hope to have about 400 dogs at the event,” she said.

The event will raise money for the Shenton Park Dogs Refuge Home. If 500 people come down, then $7000 will be raised for the dog refuge.

Thea said she hoped to do the event once a year.

“Every year there would be a different theme,” she said.

“This year the theme is Italian as we will have Italian food vendors and show the movie Lady and the Tramp.”

The event will have dog-themed markets, doggie mocktails and free dog spaghetti.

Maylands MLA Lisa Baker will MC the event._
