Despite the driving rain, the Wing Fest Dog Show went ahead on Sunday.
Fiona Senior‘s lovely Hungarian Vizsla ‘ Stirling’ won the Best in Show, the ‘Sophie Trophy.’
Fiona lives in London and was visiting her mother in Uppingham when she decided to brave the heavy rain to enter the show, winning the Trophy donated by Wing Resident, Mrs Anne Thomson, in memory of her Airedale ‘ Sophie’.
The trophy was presented by Judge, Mr Philip Sutcliffe from Wellingborough and District Canine Society and the Birmingham Fox Terrier Club, who cheerfully battled the driving rain to ensure no class was cancelled. Philip, we are most grateful.
Thanks to the generous sponsors, Fish4 Dogs, pet food, we were able to donate £180 to Dogs Trust.
Thanks to all our hardy dog owners who came to support the event, and the soaking helpers, who kept going to the end!
