Grasmere Lakeland Sports And Show 2016
PET DOG SHOW - Overview
90 entries in the Pet Dog Show once again produced a very impressive variety of pets from across the North, and some from much further afield. This year a class was introduced for Veteran Dogs from 7 years upwards, the oldest contestant being Molly, a 12 year old Cocker Spaniel from Grasmere.
Also for the first time, there was a special Rescue Dog Award, which produced some disturbing tales, but all with happy endings. When the eight rescue dogs in the Show paraded after their respective classes, three had already won rosettes, and the Rescue Dog Award went to Sammy, a 2 year old Spitz cross, rescued at the eleventh hour from a pound in Ireland, already placed second in the Adult Bitch class and now living happily with Sheila in Kingston-upon-Thames.
