Dear Editor

I had the pleasure and privilege of judging the fun dog show at the first-ever St Dogmael's Village Show on Saturday, September 13, and would like to say a big thank you to all the people (and dogs) who took part for the way they entered into the spirit of the event and for being such good sports. It was a delight to meet them, and I can honestly say that the canine residents who I met are very lucky to have such loving and appreciative owners. I am sorry I could not give a prize to all of them, but I hope all the four-legged contestants did at least get a biscuit!

Special thanks to Rose Appleby and Jo Hutchings for their help and for providing such lovely prizes for the winners and to Helen Jenkins whose organisation made the entire show such a success.
