When ‘Mr Smith’ hit high notes during his performance at Warrnambool’s City Memorial Bowls Club on Saturday, club members dug deep, raising $2700 for fire victims.
Mr Smith, a Bichon Maltese cross, joined owners Pete and Sandy Smith on stage entertaining 160 country music lovers in a VFF Disaster Relief Fundraiser.
The canine’s act followed four hours of whip cracking, guitar playing, raffles, and country songs.
Organiser Hayley White said members of the Warrnambool and District Country Music Group were thrilled with the event.
“They didn’t want to leave,” she said. “We went half an hour longer than we usually do because everyone was happy listening to the music.”
