Peakirk canine capers

The Peakirk Fun Dog Show took place for the third year in Arthur Neaverson’s paddock on the 18th July.  

Much fun was had by all, and the usual fabulous community spirit was ever-present, especially in the now regular crazy ‘Sausage and Spoon’ race where, accompanied by your faithful hound, you are required to run up and down the field with dog on lead, sausage on spoon, against the clock. It seemed to help if you laughed a lot, dropped the sausage on the floor, almost tripped over your dog to retrieve said sausage, before starting all over again!  

There were had many other fun classes, including Best Puppy, Best Veteran, Prettiest Bitch and Most Handsome Dog and Best Trick.  

All the winners of each class came together to compete for the title of Best in Show prize. This year it was won by Tia the beautiful  German Shepherd Dog.

There were also delightful doggy cakes and treats to purchase, baked and provided by Lilian who runs her cake business Patisserie Lilian from her home in Peakirk.   She also baked a fabulous ‘human’ cake for our raffle which was won by our paddock host, Arthur to share amongst family and friends.

All profits were donated to the Alzheimer’s Society and raised  a magnificent £150. Plans are already underway more canine capers for 2016, so watch this space and come along to join in the fun!
