Haslingfield Dog Show
The ring was set up and the team were ready for the entries; people started arriving and the heavens opened; the water had to be continually swiped off the table with David standing with umbrellas hovering over it; people trying to write on soggy paper whilst holding onto their dogs – a good start. It was only the glimpse of blue sky on the horizon that kept us going.
The admin. team did a sterling job of translating the damp paper into classes ready for the Judge, the sun came from behind the clouds and somewhere there was a rainbow.
Owners and their dogs waited patiently for the judging to start and Sue did a thorough and professional job of choosing the 1st, 2nd and 3rd for each class, as well as the Best in Show- a very difficult job especially with everyone from the Village watching.
The Best in Show was Kaley, owned by Jean Vernon-Smith of Harlton and the Best Haslingfield Dog was Rosie owned by (unfortunately the first name disappeared in the rain) Smith, of New Road. It is planned to put a full list of winners on the website www.haslingfieldscarecrowfestival.org.
Hopefully, the Dog Show will return to the next festival with improvements in organisation and, preferably, no rain!
