Dog fails to win big prize
Karratha Leisureplex’s millionth visitor was almost a dog, which would have won a 12-month membership, presumably to lick people’s faces while they were trying to exercise.
Leia Cann won the membership in the end, but was almost pipped to the post by an Alaskan malamute, who strolled in with his owner just moments earlier.
Mrs Cann said she had lived in Karratha her whole life and this was the first prize she had won.
“I was just coming here for a birthday party so I was quite shocked when I walked in the doors and all the confetti went off,” she said.
