Sweet treats are big test for hun­gry hounds

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

BEA­GLES charmed vis­i­tors at a pub­lic dog show held in Brook. There was good sup­port for the dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories, which in­cluded the com­pan­ion dog show, work­ing ter­rier show and lurcher show. More than 300 en­tries were reg­is­tered dur­ing the day. The nov­elty scurry proved par­tic­u­larly pop­u­lar, with Gipsy Tart win­ning in less than 24 sec­onds. The Ash­ford Val­ley Hunt or­gan­ised the ter­rier rac­ing. The fun classes kept the judges Mark Sk­il­beck and Richard Calkin busy. Ber­tie the labrador beat the Ir­ish wolfhound, the lurcher and other labradors to win the quick­est dog to eat a bun class by swal­low­ing the cake whole, and then want­ing more. The raf­fle raised £195.75 which will be split equally be­tween the Wye Bea­gles and their nom­i­nated char­ity, the Kent Air Am­bu­lance.
