HUNDREDS of punters from far and wide pitched up at Millbrook animal rescue centre on Sunday for the charity’s annual Dog Show.
The yearly meeting of mutts is a popular event, with many pooches returning to the centre who rescued and cared for them before becoming people’s pets. One such dog is Muppet, an unknown cross-breed and a rescue from Egypt.
Every dog has its day and this was theirs – a chance to socialise and show off in the many classes laid on, whether old, young, mixed breed, pedigree, novice, rescue or not.
One such proud pooch was Poppy, a Hungarian Vizsla belonging to Ellie Salmon, who showed her athletic dexterity on the agility course. Classes included Teen or Tot trainer, Senior’s Moment, Lovable Lad, Best Rescue Dog, Super Staffies & Brilliant Bull Breeds, Perfect Puppy Shining Example, Fabulous Female, Best Millbrook Rescue, Best Bunch, and Top Dog of the Day.
It was all good family fun, with activities and stalls for two-legged visitors too, raising much-needed funds for the RSPCA.
