Dog shows set tails wagging - and there's more to come
5:26pm Sunday 18th August 2013 in News
TAILS wagged and coats shone as dog lovers proudly paraded their pooches at two shows in the region.
Charity coffers were swelled by the events in Hurworth, near Darlington, and Hardwick Park, near Sedgefield, County Durham, on Sunday (August 18).
Among the charities to benefit from the Hurworth event, held at Hurworth Grange, was the Newton Aycliffe branch of the National Animal Sanctuaries Support League, which aims to rescue and re-home abandoned animals.
Darlington Retired Greyhound Trust was the main beneficiary of the Hardwick Park show.
Prizes were handed out in a range of categories, across the two shows, including those for prettiest bitch, best biscuit catcher and waggiest tail.
Meanwhile, dog owners who may have missed the fun over the weekend are being invited to put their best foot forward and take part in a sponsored walk in aid of charity.
Supporters of the Butterwick Hospice, in Bishop Auckland, will take part in a three-mile walk through Hamsterley Forest on Sunday, September 8, from 11am.
Entry costs £5 per dog, with those taking part asked to raise as much as possible for the hospice.
Registration in advance is compulsory. Call 01388-660644 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
