Postponed Dog Show rescheduled for September


A new date has been confirmed for this year's annual Dog Show.


It will now take place on September 16th at 2.30pm on the surgery field in Old Town.

The Dog Show is organised by the Isles of Scilly Veterinary Support Group. Chair Pam Manning said: "We have a small group of six of us, including Heike [the vet], who set up the marquees and the ring and side tents for teas, toys and raffle the night before.

"We choose a different judge each year, which is kept secret until the day."

Mike Skaife will act as compere, while St Mary's WI will be responsible for the cake stall as usual.

The Dog Show features ten categories, each with five rosettes: Most Handsome Dog, Prettiest Bitch, Best Child Under 12 In Charge of Dog, Waggiest Tail, Best Puppy, Best Visitors Dog, Best Owner/Dog Lookalike, Golden Oldie 8 years+, Best Trick and Dog That Judges Would Like To Take Home.

The winners of each category then compete to be crowned Best In Show.
