Come along to the Copthorne Veterinary Clinic Dog Show!
It's that time of year again, when the nights are drawing in and we all try to make the most of the last couple of hours of daylight down on the field. This leads to HUGE gatherings of dogs and it's great to see all of the different shapes, sizes and coat-lengths, all getting on so well (...most of the time Lottie and Polly!) Tonight was no exception and Bolt the JRT is getting more and more involved with both dogs and humans as he continues to recover from a nasty car accident and who knows what other misfortunes he has no doubt suffered in his short life. He's obviously extremely happy with Emma and Ralphie now, and the reason I mention him in particular is that he is a success story from Copthorne Veterinary Clinic and they are holding a dog show this Sunday 19th September at Longden Village Hall SY5 8EX. This is near Shrewsbury and entries for a range of classes including pedigree and novelty are welcome from 12pm and judging begins at 1pm. Entry fee is £1 per class, car parking costs £2 per car and all proceeds go to Lingen Davies Cancer Appeal and Shropshire Greyhound Rescue. Sounds like a lovely afternoon out to me with a BBQ, charity stalls, cakes etc. not to mention facepainting and other stuff for the kids. How about we try to get a whole load of rosettes back to Castle Walk?! I know I am more than a little biased but we have got some lovely looking dogs in our group so it's worth a few quid for some good causes to show them off, and enjoy each other's company in a different location for a change. Archie's up for it, although after what happened last time we showed him, I hope his self-esteem can take it! Hope to see you there.
