Fun Dog Show – June 2012

On Sunday, June 24th 2012, we held our first ‘Fun Dog Show’ (our second ‘big’ event of the year) which was a huge success and far exceeded our expectations!  Even the weather played along and although it threatened to rain, it didn’t and in the afternoon we enjoyed some unexpected sunshine!

In all there were 157 entries in 8 classes and we even had time for an impromptu ‘best trick’ event.  There were large numbers of 2 and 4 legged visitors throughout the day enjoying the festive atmosphere and a great time was had by all.

We were very grateful for the generous sponsorship of Sussex Pets who donated all the prizes and also assisted with the judging.  Thank you Barbara!  A big thank you too to Stefan Franks of the Hound Lounge who assisted with the judging and also very kindly donated a free ‘dog grooming session’ to the Best In Show winner.

As always, there are many other people who generously donated their time to helping out on the day … so a big thank you to …

Robin Edwards, Tom Burns and ‘The Thursday vols’, Shirley Morley, Charlotte Barker, Ellie and Charlie Shelley-Bell,  Nina Jarman, Pat Ellis, Andy Bell and Lorna Wilson.

A special thanks to Steve Barker – who did a fantastic job as MC and kept everyone smiling!  Thanks also to Sid Algar for his invaluable support in organising the car park.

Committee members Mick, Shirley, Judy, Tim, Vicky, Dot and Claire all worked incredibly hard to organise and manage the event – well done everyone!
