Friends of Tooting Common 2019 Fun Dog Show
The annual Fun Dog Show was held on 9th June on Tooting Bec Common. 100 dogs entered in the show, from chihuahuas and terrier puppies up to a Great Dane and an Irish Wolfhound (a previous winner of Best Puppy). There were about 450 spectators and competitors.
Judges included Rosena Allin-Khan (MP for Tooting), Cllr Jane Cooper (Mayor of Wandsworth), Jacqueline Said (the Dogs of Tooting Common), Jennifer and Lauren (from Streatham Hill Vets), and Downtown Woof.
Classes included Most Handsome Dog, Prettiest Bitch, Young and Junior Handlers, and Best Trick. In the Young and Junior Handler classes, children had to take their dog for a trot around the ring, and then make them sit still, which is sometimes surprisingly difficult. The Best Puppy class was judged by Rosena Allin-Khan MP and a large group of children, who enthusiastically voted for Pretzel the cavapoo. Otis the Jack Russell won the Best Trick class by popular acclaim for his moving portrayal of “the injured soldier”.
