Jake the rescue dog.

 

The dog Jake who was seeking a home has now gone on trial to a farmer in Cornwall.

Hopefully this will  work out well for all parties and Hilary Hendin has sent two nice 

photos .

One of Jake with his new owner and one of Jake working at Hilary's farm with her two dogs ( both are also rescue dogs )

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Good luck to Jake he certainly looks a stylish dog.

SHEEPDOG TRAINING DAY

CADLEIGH TIVERTON

Chris and Penny Roe were the hosts for the Devon and Exmoor Society sheepdog training day on the 6th May.

Though it was a little windy the sun shone and the sheep, a little tetchy to start with, soon settled down.

We had three trainers who kindly gave their services for the day. David Grant, Carol Worgan and Roderick Hayes.

 "You all done a fantastic job. WELL DONE."

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Many thanks to the trainers and to Chris and Penny for

 giving up their time.

 

 "Could not have done it without you." 

 

     

Everyone I managed to speak to, had enjoyed themselves and felt that it had helped them with their dogs.

The total raised for the day £103.85p.

 

Tracey Peat

Chairman

 

 (The nice photos were taken by Tracey so thank you to her also.)
