Last year I was featured as the face of ‘Crufts’ in the Daily Telegraph, along with the headline ‘Britain’s top dogs return for the 125th year’. Whilst this was all rather flattering I couldn’t help but think it was somewhat ironic as I wouldn’t even pick up last place at Crufts! Why you may ask? Well, my age would be one factor and plus the fact that I am not entire (show speak for castration) and it’s been years since I’ve had a full set of my own teeth.
But all dogs have a chance of getting a rosette at the Hunstanton Fun Dog Show. We don’t care if you are not entire; in fact we wouldn’t be so undignified as to check! It doesn’t matter if you have a wonky eye or even two, a limp or are missing a few teeth. If you turn up at the show after having a good old run about and are covered in mud, sand or soaking wet…great! No need for any baths or toothpaste. We welcome all dogs, pedigree and otherwise. If you’re not sure about your parentage no need to be embarrassed, we won’t ask!
So come along and join us to have fun and enjoy the best day out for dogs on the Norfolk coast. There are 12 fun classes to enter with rosettes up to 10th place in each class – with Best in Show and Reserve BIS Trophies.
Prettiest Girl, Most Handsome Boy, Veteran (aged 8 +), Young Dog (under 3), Dog The Judge would like to take home, Waggiest Tail, Best Rescue, Boy with the most appealing eyes, Girl with the most appealing eyes, Fancy Dress, Happy Families (2 dogs or more), Dog with no Rosettes. £1.50 per class.
Followed by Best in Show and Reserve Best in Show.
Besides the Fun Dog Show there will be have-a-go flyball, a fastest recall competition, Dachshund Racing and a fantastic doggy dancing display by Paws Obedience. Plus trade stands, bouncy castles, plenty of refreshments and onsite parking.
