Passage West Dog Show

Passage West Dog Show last Saturday was a huge success.  Dogs of all shapes and sizes turned out, from pugs, Jack Russells and shitzus to mastiffs and alsatians.  All dogs were exceptionally well behaved, the weather smiled on them throughout and the afternoon went smoothly from start to finish.

An adorable golden cocker spaniel, Oscar, won the Best Puppy class.  The Golden Oldie class indisputably belonged to a 15-year old Jack Russell.  The decision on the winner in the Waggiest Tail class was made by the crowd as children encouraged their dogs to wag their tails furiously.  With the weekend that was in it, a matching Gathering outfit for dog and owner won the Best Dressed class.  Other classes included Prettiest Princess, Most Handsome Dog, Best Rescue, Best Trick, Dog Most Like Its Owner, Child’s Best Friend and Dog Judge Would Most Like To Take Home…

Following from the success of last year, the Passage West Dog Show is back!  This year, it forms part of Passage West’s week-long Sirius Commemoration Festival and will be held on Saturday 18th May at 2.00pm in Patrick Murphy Park, Toureen.

As with last year’s event, the focus of this dog show is on a good time, so expect lots of fun classes with a nominal entry fee.  Awards will go to first, second and third in every class.
