It was a ‘tail’ of success for many on Sunday when the Friends of St Keverne School held a fun dog show in the sun.

This was held in the village playing field against a back drop of blue skies and sunshine.

The fine weather attracted a large number of dogs and their owners, who competed in ten classes before being pitted against each other to become overall champion and reserve champion.

Fun titles up for grabs included dog with the waggiest tail, best fancy dress and dog most like its owner.

The most popular class was ‘dog the judge would like to take home,’ which had more than 20 entries.

However, it was the rosette for overall champion that of course everyone wanted, which on the day went to Barney belonging to Lisa Williams from Breage. Reserve champion was Trixie, owned by Lily Hosking. All the classes were judged by Andrew Richards of Tregurtha Kennels at Goldsithney.

Organiser Lucinda Tylor said: “We would like to thank everyone who came, and particularly our very generous sponsors.”

These included past chairman of Battersea Dogs Home John Hoerner, Mole Valley Farmers, Cornwall Farmers and Hog House.

Mrs Tylor also thanked Helford Hog Roasts for the “delicious food” and the Playing Field Committee for free use of the facilities. The event raised approximately £500 for St Keverne School, which will go towards improving the swimming pool changing rooms.
