Ulverston dog show sets tails wagging to help raise money for club

FROM Chihuahuas through to Mastiffs, the little and large of the dog world made an appearance at a canine celebration in Ulverston this bank holiday weekend.
Pedigrees, rescue dogs and some pooches who were more than 100 in human years, all turned up with their tails wagging for a fun dog show in Ulverston on Saturday.
Ulverston and District Equine Club swapped horses and ponies for dogs for the day to stage the open event at Newland Green Farm which was very well attended.
The sun came out and the classes were full of lines of gleaming dogs aiming to win rosettes in a range of classes.
It was a very happy birthday for Indianna Foxon. The six-year-old, of Askam, was in the ribbons with Jessy. They had a win in the mixed breed class and picked up other rosettes during the day.
Ethan Wilson, 10, continued his run of success with his black Labrador. The Yarlside School pupil showed how well trained 18-month-old Jem is to collect first prize in junior handler (10 to 14 years). Jem was also the reserve best in show at Alice’s Dog Show at North Lonsdale Agricultural Show last month with Ethan as handler.
It was a great day for Dorathea Rooney and her 18-month-old Whippet, Rupert. The blue fawn dog won the best pedigree class.
Miss Rooney, of Barrow, said: “This is his first show. I’m really chuffed. The judge said he is lovely.
“It’s a good show, it’s a fun day and fundraiser for the club.”
There was lots of awwing over Paulyn Whetstone’s six-week-old Caviler King Charles puppy, Halo, who won the puppy class. Mrs Whetstone, who runs Scruffy 2 Fluffy Dog Grooming, in Barrow, organised the show for UDEC. She brought her Caviler King Charles dogs along to the event for children without their own dogs to show in the classes. Mrs Whetstone said: “There has been a brilliant turnout, a really good variety of dogs and they have all been very well behaved. The kids and adults have loved the show.”
In the afternoon there was dog agility and games for the children.
