Plenty of fun is planned again this year for the canine community and their owners, as part of the Fair of Cahir.

The annual Fun Dog Show will take place on Sunday 28th August, starting at 2pm, when the Pedigree Puppies will be judged. This class will be followed by Any Variety (AV) Terrier or Toy; AV Sporting; AV Non-Sporting; AV Open. At this point the Best Pedigree Dog in Show will be judged.

This year, the Rosettes, from 1st to 4th in all 12 Classes, are sponsored by John Quirke Jewellers, and the small cups for 1st in each pedigree class, as well as a new Perpetual Cup for Best in Show, are sponsored by Maureen Calvert, to celebrate the end of her tenure as founder and organiser of these shows.

Maxi Zoo, in the Poppy Fields, is once again the main sponsor of this show. They provide their best dog food for winners, as well as Goodie Bags and more.

One of Maxi Zoo's experts will be on hand on the day to help anyone who has problems with their pets, providing professional advice. Not just for dogs, either.

The “Fun Classes”, which will not start before 3:30pm, will be as follows: Best Fancy Dress: Best Child's Pet; Handsomest Dog & Prettiest Bitch; Rescue in Best Condition; Dog with the best Trick / Talent; Dog the Judge would like to Take Home; and the grand finale, which as always is the entertaining Dog & Owner Race.

Do tell your friends, and bring as many dogs as possible. Funds raised are for the Promoting Cahir Group, which does so much to bring visitors to Cahir.
