RESIDENTS took to the streets to celebrate King’s Somborne Village Fun Day on July 28, with events held around the village.

With celebrations in full flow, one of the main events of the day was the companion dog show.

Despite a few windy showers, more than 60 dogs (and their owners) took part across the several classes.

Entries came from far and wide, though most were local. International judge Julia Iles-Hebbert was kept busy all afternoon, with many worthy dogs competing in both pedigree and novelty classes.

Best in Show was given to India, a borzoi, owned by Tracey Page from Houghton.

First Reserve was Truffle, a field spaniel owned by Kirsty Young from Farnborough.

Other awards were given to the dog with the waggiest tail, which went to Radar, a Labrador owned by Darcey Eckett from King’s Somborne, and the dog that the judge would most like to take home.

That prize was awarded to Loch, a German Shepherd owned by Carole Brewer, also from King’s Somborne.

In the pedigree class, the winner of any variety toy/utility was Golly, a Griffon Bruxellois owned by Carol Ritchie from Hook, and any variety open was given to George, a whippet owned by Mia Chappell from Salisbury.
