Does your dog have the prettiest eyes, the waggiest tail or a knack for catching biscuits? Put your companion to the test tomorrow and it could be named a new champion of the town.

Adults, children and their four-legged friends are invited for an afternoon of fun and games on Saturday, June 15 when the Friends of Falsgrave Park, in conjunction with Scarborogh and District All Breeds Dog Training Club, hosts it annual Daft Dog Show.

Following last year’s record attendance, organisers are hoping to attract a host of visitors, old and new, to enjoy the show classes, stalls and activities taking place on the top field of Falsgrave Park from 2pm to approximately 4pm.

Dorothy Russell, chairman of the Friends of Falsgrave Park, said: “This event is proving to be one of the highlights of the park’s year and its success is due to the many Friends who work hard behind the scenes to get the show on the road

“If anyone would like to help with the stalls on the day please do give me a call on (01723) 371629.”

Entry to the event is free but there is a small charge to enter the classes, which range from Best Rehomed Dog through to Waggiest Tail, Best Biscuit Catcher, Prettiest Bitch, Best Lady and Gentleman Handler, Most Appealing Eyes and Handsomest Dog.

Rosettes will be awarded up to fourth place, but Cruft hopefuls need not apply as it’s only for fun!

Pet owners may also want to keep a watchful eye on their best friend if it is voted the dog the judge would most like to take home, by deputy mayor Pat Marsburg.

Home-made refreshments will be available at the Parks Café, which is being set up for the day.

Other stalls include plants, cakes, tombola and games such as splat the rat and hit the dice. And if any children feel that they’re missing out on animal companionship, they could go home with a new furry friend from the Adopt a Doggy soft toy stall.
