The Papillon (Butterfly Dog) Club held their annual Papfest at Brails Village Hall, Nr Banbury. From what I hear the weather was kind and the sun beamed down for the tan effect by the end of the day. What better chance for old and new friends to meet up. Unfortunately haven’t been able to muster up a lot of snippets of the show but I do know that there was a heart warming and heart wrenching parade of rescues organised by Debbie Goodwin plus agility, breed show, rescue stall, fun dog show, training tips and wobble board training and a BBQ.
I believe the rescue stall that Sue Dugan had organised so meticulously under the banner of official rescue fundraiser was a great success. Huge round of applause to all those who contributed to the amazing total of £621 on the day for the tombola, raffle, stall purchases and rescue donations. Since the short time that Sue took on the post an unbelievable £1299 has been raised. Many congratulations Sue, your hard work has certainly paid off.
Kevin Arrowsmith (Rozamie)Arrowbien) judged the open show and awarded the following principal winners: BD / BIS Sue & Jon Caton’s Coffee Ice Cream Forussi at Henrix, RD / RBISAnne Borg’s Elendil Petit Prince. Anne also took BB with Petress Dark and Daring JW, RBB Susie & Margaret Orchard’s Ringlands Yoko’s Solo who also took BPH with their import Semicvetik Dayana Devine Panspayon. BP was a delighted Katherine Bull with Altaya Start Attraction, BV Liz & Alan Bartram’s Ch Burbridge Ur Solid Gold Skyvana JW ShCM.
