We had a terrific day on Saturday March 14th at the rescue centre’s dog show in Lochans Community Hall near Stranraer. Despite poor weather and all the worry about coronavirus, there was an excellent attendance. It was especially rewarding to meet owners who had never been to a dog show before and to see how well the dogs behaved.
The rescue centre would like to thank all the volunteers who made the show such a success and the generosity of the participants. This meant that the show raised £319 to help care for the rescue dogs at the centre.
The classes were judged by the centre’s manager Emma Patterson. She had a really hard job to sort out her prize winners in each of the eight fun classes. The winners of the classes are listed below:-
Handsomest dog - Rocco - Doue de Bordeaux (French mastiff) - Jordan from Stranraer
Prettiest bitch - Riley - Jack Russell terrier cross - Sophie from Stranraer
Golden Oldie (dogs over 10 years) - Molly - Cocker spaniel cross (13 years) - Lesley from Minigaff
Shining example of health and happiness - Cliff - Basset hound - Fiona from Kirkcolm
Best cross breed - Blaze - Lurcher - Jolene from Stranraer
Waggiest tail - Cooper - Springer spaniel - Dax from Newton Stewart
Best rescue - Sooty - Poodle cross - Jean from Sandhead
Dog the judge would most like to take home - Martha - Labrador retriever - Fin from KIrkcolm
Well done everyone – a splendid day! It was so nice to have some fun with such nice people and dogs amidst all the gloomy news at present.
We hope to see you all again at our fun dog show in Newton Stewart at 1.00pm on Sunday October 11th.
