Pooches on parade for Helston Harvest dog show

There were more than just hound dogs and certainly no crying when Helston’s harvest fair dog show took place on Sunday.
The dry weather meant the event could take place as planned on Event’s Square at Coronation Park.
Between 40 and 50 dogs and their owners gathered on the piazza to take part, with 100 entries in the different classes.
Dog show secretary Rosemary Jenkin said that while entries were slightly down on last year, it was still a nice occasion, adding: “The weather was lovely so we managed to have it outside.”
Best in show went to Amanda Sullivan and her springer spaniel Molly, with boxer dog Zeta rewarding owner Mrs S Fielder with the reserve best in show title.
One of the best supported classes was best local dog and with a name like Flora Dancer, the Dalmatian belonging to town councillor John Boase and his wife Nicola was also going to triumph.
Mark Upton of the Epworth Hall saw his Toby named the cross breed in best condition, while K James won the junior handling class Cali Bernese Cali.
Best puppy was judged to be pug Levi, with Molly winning the open class, Ruby the best sporting dog and Zeta the best non-sporting dog.
Best novelty dog was Jaz the lurcher and Newfoundland Bella took reserve best novelty dog.
All the classes were judged by Nick Roberts.
