Just back from a fabulous weekend at Chertsey Show. A big thank you to the organisers for making it such a well run and enjoyable event (aided this year by not having torrential rain on the second day). Especial thanks to the announcements made throughout the day reminding owners not to leave their dogs in cars (yes, people still do this even in the baking temperatures that we experienced last weekend), to pick up after their dogs and to keep dogs on leads and under control in the countryside.
On the latter, a calf was exhibited that had been mauled by a loose dog. Thankfully recovered but at huge cost to the farmer, never mind the trauma, mental and physical, suffered by the poor calf.
Events such as Chertsey, the only proper agricultural show within the M25, attract a range of visitors and are an excellent opportunity to remind dog owners of their responsibilities.
Put it in your diary for next year!
