Lochaber dog show suc­cess

The Oban Times - - News -

LOCHABER and District Ca­nine So­ci­ety held its an­nual dog show on Tues­day July 4.

Nearly 40 dogs and their own­ers went along to join in the fun.

Classes for pedi­gree dogs in­cluded a spe­cial be­gin­ners class for dogs and han­dlers who have never won at a Ken­nel Club show to en­cour­age new­com­ers.

The nov­elty classes are al­ways highly pop­u­lar and with 21 dogs en­ter­ing the best con­di­tion class, it was a dif­fi­cult job for the judges. There was also a puppy walk for those too young to take part and a best trick com­pe­ti­tion.

This year’s cho­sen char­ity was Ca­nine Part­ners and a rep­re­sen­ta­tive from the char­ity was at the event.

Fiona Barce­nas, and Bar­num the dog, were happy to tell own­ers about the work of the char­ity and Fiona judged the best trick com­pe­ti­tion. Fiona said: ‘Thank you so so much for the lovely evening. It was a breath of fresh air, so light-hearted and up­beat. At the same time it was so well- or­gan­ised and pro­fes­sional. It was an honour for Bar­num and I to judge the dog trick sec­tion.’

Sarah Hol­royd, show sec­re­tary, said: ‘ Once again I’m over­whelmed by the gen­eros­ity of peo­ple in sup­port of our com­pan­ion dog show. We raised more than £ 587.79 for Ca­nine Part­ners. Well done and thanks to ev­ery­one who gave gen­er­ously of their time and money, to all those who helped in the or­gan­i­sa­tion, set-up and run­ning of the show and to all those who came along and took part. I hope you all en­joyed your night.’
