Fun Day Dog Show 2019

Despite the awful weather it was lovely to see lots of happy dogs and smiling faces, we had 177 entries in total.

Published on Jun 4, 2019

The winning dogs are listed below along with the many generous businesses which sponsored the day - we hope you will support them in return so we can ask them again next year! Huge thanks to our special guest Judge Fiona Armstrong from Border Life for being such a trooper, and to our Chair Diana Lord who stepped in to judge when our scheduled pedigree judge failed to appear. Thanks too to all our lovely volunteers who turned out to help, and to everyone who supported the show.
Hopefully next year we will be luckier with the weather!
