The Mayday Gala had arrived again in Breaston, Derbyshire and it was a little overcast. There was a lot of hustle and bustle as people began to set up for the event.
The dog show area needed setting up ready for the registration to commence. This year the categories were puppy, small breed, medium breed, large/giant breed, waggiest tail (2 classes), best rescue, Golden Oldie 

and dog the judge would most like to take home.
At 10.30 am the first entries arrived to sign up to the dog show, one by one the lists for each category increased. A small fee was charged & all monies raised are to be donated to the Dogs Trust. A goody bag with various items donated by pet product manufactures was gCiven to each entry.
A 80 dogs were registered in total and everyone was thrilled with their goody bags. This raised £80 for the Dogs Trust at Loughborough.
Once the two judges had seen all of the dogs they had to pick a shortlist & then 1st, 2nd & 3rd places were decided, we also had a highly commended award. Each winner was awarded a rosette & a prize which had been donated by various pet product/food manufactures.
Best in Show was held with the winner of each class & the judges had a tricky decision to make as to which of the eight dogs would be awarded the Best in Show title. A trophy cup was presented to the winner and the second and third places received a trophy. In all it was another well attended event. A big thank you to all our sponsors for their generous contributions.
