Sunday sees us performing at our 6th consecutive Wessex Country Fair at Wilton House. Gates open at 10 and we’re in the main arena at 1pm.
The organisers were good enough to call me this morning to ask my advice on whether the numerous dog events should be cancelled due to the heat. With paddling pools, hoses and spray areas strategically placed everywhere, combined with great areas of shade provided by the magnificent trees adjacent to the show ground, we felt it would be OK to continue – on the understanding that the plug would be pulled at the first signs of any distress. In addition, the car parks will be patrolled constantly looking for any dogs that are left in cars – I guarantee it’ll happen!
Anyway, there are loads of displays and have-a-go attractions for dog owners as well as many other displays and stalls. I’ll be judging the numerous classes in the fun dog show after our display.
It’s always well attended, not least because all proceeds go to the Salisbury Hospice Charity. So please help swell the coffers and come along on Sunday!
