Soon after the V litter pups were named last year, Bega (the parent company that makes Vegemite) announced a national competition to find a new rendition of their famous Vegemite song.
With a pup named Vegemite, it was the perfect opportunity for Dogs for Kids to get involved! Vegemite’s puppy raiser and fellow staff and students of Derinya Primary School jumped on board and the required 25 second competition entry clip was created.
With Covid restrictions, each participant recorded their part separately, then the talented performing arts teacher creatively edited all parts together to reflect a zoom meeting grid! Ten week old Vegemite was the star, wearing his Dogs for Kids jacket and Vegemite bandana as he walked along to the jingle! Although we didn’t win a prize, everyone loved participating and gaining attention on social media. It certainly brightened up lockdown for all involved and our Happy Little Vegemite took it all in his stride!
Vegemite is now eight months old and continues to love adventures and attention! Look out for him out and about in the Frankston area rocking Vegemite merchandise and his Dogs for Kids jacket.
