A day at the dog show
A Great day out with my friend and his dog Molly at the dog show,read on to find out how she got on....
- Mount Noddy
- A right old mixture of owners and dogs
- Time to take the stage for Molly
- The end of a perfect day.
Sunday 17th April was the day of the Mount Noddy Animal Centre Dog Show, dogs of all sorts with their owners of all sorts were all there, all with an eye on the converted rosette,
it was a perfect day, the sun was shining as Mollie and her owner Ted waited their turn to go into the judging ring.
A right old mixture of owners and dogs
She was entered in the “Best rescue bitch” event I spent a little time walking around taking pictures of all the different dogs.
There were big and small dogs tiny miniatures dogs and some as long as both my arms outstretched, mongrels and pure breads, fat dogs and I saw one very thin dog with no hair and even though the sun was shining it was standing shivering.
Time to take the stage for Molly
You could say the owners were just as diverse, soon it was time for ted and Molly to take their place in the judging ring, as the owners prepared and brushed their dogs the judge made her way into the ring
One by one the doge were presented to the judge, she ran her hands over the dogs checking for bone structure etc.
The end of a perfect day.
Molly was as good as gold as she waited her turn, the judge ran her eyes one more time over the dogs and suddenly stepped forward and put her hand and one of the dogs, sadly this day was not molly’s but never the less no less enjoyable.
