MARVELLOUS MILFORD - DOG SHOW OF THE YEAR!
MILFORD DOG SHOW NUMBER FIVE!
Milford Fun Dog Show was held on 21st July 2019, and what a fun filled day it really was! The weather was perfect, not too hot which meant all the doggies and owners could comfortably enjoy the day. It was lovely to see so many dogs taking part in this event to raise funds for the not so fortunate dogs we help. This was the 5th year Milford Fun Dog show has been held and record numbers in each class!
This annual event was run by the amazing Nicky & Roger Carter along with their Milford Team, it’s extremely well organised and the classes all run smoothly, there is a great fun element from musical mats and the sausage throwing/catching class being two of the highlights.
Our favourite class is of course best rescue, so many beautiful dogs with such caring owners who all had a story to tell. It’s always a tough one to judge as they all deserve a rosette for adopting their best friend! But there has to be a winner and this year we chose a super sweet lurcher who was found on the side of a busy road in the UK by her owner, she had been abandoned was emaciated and had facial injuries. Nursed back to full health by her adopter you could see an incredible bond between them, this is what rescue is all about.
Best in Show was awarded to a very handsome male Chester, who was extremely well behaved and didn’t put a paw wrong in any of the classes he entered! A huge Congratulations to all who entered or supported the show in any way as you all helped raise an incredible target busting £2,800!
Thank you to all who donated incredible raffle prizes, as a large proportion of the total was from ticket sales. This will help us feed many dogs in need, we are being constantly asked to send food to various shelters/rescues.
A special Thank You to Catherine Dashwood, a talented local photographer, as proceeds from the sale of her photos taken on the day will add to the total raised. You can see more of her photos next week, Here is a link to purchase your very own copies https://catherinedashwoodpetphotogra.shootproof.com/gallery/6477736/
