    Kent County Fair is being held at The Hop Farm, Paddock Wood over three days this year (Sat. 2nd, Sun. 3rd, Mon. 4th May). On each day, we are running a Companion Show, the proceeds of which will go to The Siberian Husky Welfare Association (UK) towards the rehoming of unwanted Siberian Huskies here in the UK.

    Details of the show(s) can be accessed at http://www.shwauk.org.uk/Kent%20Companion%20Show.htm

    Please put the dates in your diary and come along to support us.

    Just to remind everyone that these shows are coming up next weekend. There is a different show on each of the three days with rosettes up to 5th place in all classes and trophies for the show winners and runners up.
    Here’s hoping for good weather.

    It’s in a good cause as all proceeds will go to the Siberian Husky Welfare Association (UK) and will cover the costs of neutering, vaccinations and other vet treatment etc on the dogs we take in and rehome. This will mean a better future for dogs like Lily, who came in to us last year:

    and little Alfie, a 9 week old puppy who came into us last week (pictured with our West Country Co-ordinator, Heather Nicholls):

    Alfie was sold at 7 weeks to a woman who lived in a flat. She also worked all day. So, at 7 weeks, after spending the whole of his short life with his mum and littermates, he was suddenly left alone for 8-9 hours a day. Unsurprisingly he pee’d and pooh’d all over the flat and screamed his little lungs out all the time he was left. The only good thing was that his owner didn’t want him to go back to the breeder because of the disgusting conditions there, so he came in to us. He is a lovely boy and we will keep him until he is about 4-6 months old so that we can avoid people wanting him solely for the “cute puppy” factor.
    Lily unfortunately didn’t have such a happy ending. She was doing well in her foster home, beginning to put on weight, when she suffered a massive liver failure as a result of early malnutrition and died in her sleep one night. If only we had got her earlier, we might have been able to save her, but at least she knew love and comfort for her last few weeks of life.

    Poor babe πŸ™ left Mum too early then bought by a moron who would have been better with something that came with batteries .
    So sorry about Lily :'(

    Just recovering from a really exhausting but worthwhile weekend at Kent County Show.
    We had a huge layout at the show with 3 large and two small gazebos plus a marquee for the Dog Show:

    Huge Thanks and Big Hugs to everyone who came down to help and support – especially Stuart, Gemma, Jo & Jenny, Jane & Mark and family, Jayson, Tom, Jo and Joe, Andy, Sue, Ronnie, Lauren and anyone else I have forgotten (apologies – put it down to exhaustion!!)

    Enormous Thanks and more big hugs to Anita and Nigel Holliday (Lionslord Leonbergers/Lionslord Pet Nutrition) and Pete and Nicky Shakeshaft (Esquimaux Siberian Huskies) for judging for us over the weekend. Thanks also to Gemma and Charlie for judging the odd class here and there. Nigel and Anita also donated 9 sacks of dog food and 6 boxes of treats to the show.

    Photos of the winners are now up on our main website –Β  http://www.shwauk.org.uk/Kent%20Companion%20Show.htm

    Many thanks to anyone who attended and helped us raise much-needed funds.

    Mick & Terry
