EFRAR review of the Roots Fun Dog Show


By Sue Steel – EFRAR Organising Committee 2018 …

The sun shone as the second annual Roots Fun Dog Show took place on Sunday, 1st April at Roots Bar in Küçük Erenköy.

Seven categories were on offer for rosette positions; Best Small Dog, Best Medium Dog, Best Large Dog, Golden Oldie, Musical Sit and Waggiest Tail.  An eighth category, just for fun, was the Sausage Catching competition.

Judge for the day was Major (Retd) Brian Thomas BEM who also judged the 2017 show.  He said: “It was a pleasure to help out on the day, it is always a lot of fun.”

Most of the dogs were rescue dogs from KAR or former street dogs, all now enjoying a totally different life with their owners and there were dogs of all shapes and sizes entered into the various competitions.

Mary Watson, Chair of EFRAR 2018, who entered her two dogs and walked away with two rosettes said;  “We were delighted to join with Hope4Pets for the second annual Roots Fun Dog Show.  As last year, the event was really well organized, well attended and well supported by Roots Bar who provided a BBQ and gave a significant financial contribution. The raffle and the chance to guess the number of dog biscuits in the jar added to the fun and the amount of money raised for animals and cancer patients.

Our thanks must go to Gill and Ivor Moon and for all their hard work in organising the show, Caroline Griffith who organised the show categories and was in charge of registration, to Brian Thomas for judging, to Roots Bar for hosting this event once again and to all the sponsors and helpers on the day”.
