The August Shamans Legacy Dog Show at The Orchard Tea Room Wisbech

On Sunday 23rd August Shaman's Legacy Dog Rescue held their second Fun Dog Show here at The Orchard Tea Room, Wisbech. Fortunately the weather was (mostly ) kinder than last time managing to stay dry for the majority of the show. But of course this is England and yes it ended in rain but that didn't deter anyone and a great time was had by all.

Here's what organizer Lindsey had to say, "I would like to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who came to the show today, what a fantastic day it was!!!! So many lovely dogs and owners, but the thing that always shocks me is the support you guys give me at these shows, and the donations! My van always comes back more packed than what I started with!!
Special thank you owed to the one person I never envy, our judge Lisa Pearson who did a fantastic job, was welcoming to everyone and who always seems to being life to the party!!!
Also to John Parish and Julia Paul who always run my stand, keep the kids in order and pack up and just generally keep organised and on top of things!! And of course, I'm not forgetting Jim and the team and the Orchard Tea Rooms who always allow us to use their premises for free, and make the best cuts of tea ever!!!
I'd also like to thank my little man "Teabag" (as you would have heard me call him), who is a 12 year old boy I work with. He's done a great job today, really got involved with things....he helped in the ring, on the stand, with the raffle, but most importantly, he managed to keep Rex Makemson as in order as we could possibly hope for!!! You guys have been fab with him today and he has enjoyed himself loads!!
So, here's the big announcement, after the count up a HUMONGOUS £315 had been made today!!!!!! Thank you all so much, this will go a long way towards getting the vet bills in order and settling accounts owed, which is always a great feeling!!
Thank you to everyone who came, I've enjoyed myself loads and I hope you all have too?!?!
Who's up for going again next month??"
Thank you Shaman's Legacy for another brilliant dog show.
