DO YOU have the sort of aristocratic dog whose mum or dad wore coronets or tiaras? Or perhaps a mutt from the seedier side of the tracks. There are classes for all at a companion dog show in Horam this month.
The Eastbourne and District Canine Society is holding a show in Horam Village Hall on the evening of Thursday, July 19.
Run under the auspices of the Kennel Club, the show features two separate categories of classes - pedigree classes and novelty – under the watchful eyes of two judges. There will be rosettes to fifth place in every class, a tombola and popular doggie bric-a-brac.
The show will also feature a class in the Good Citizen’s Award. This bronze level class is open to any pet dog which can be regarded as a ‘good citizen’ – in other words one who can walk nicely on a lead, not run riot with other dogs and generally behave well. Any dog can enter.
If the weather is good the show will be held outside.
Proceeds from the show go to charity. This year it is the Cinnamon Trust, beloved of all pet owners. This enables elderly and terminally ill people to keep their pets with them at home as long as possible by arranging for vounteers to go in and walk, feed and care for their animal, and find them a new home when the owner can no longer keep them.
