Monks Eleigh Fete and Dog Show

This weekend we attended the Monks Eleigh village fete and fun dog show.

The weather was kind and a good time was had by all. Our Ambassadors Jessica, Arthur, Charlie and Bob gave another excellent performance showing everyone what great pets Greyhounds make.

Kennel dog Bear came along and was an absolute super star, happy to have a fuss from everyone he met, in fact he demanded it. Bear also came fourth in the handsome dog competition. Well done Bear, obviously you will always win first place in our hearts.
