Great Fun Dog Show for the Herriot Hospice Homecare Fund at Thirsk Auction Mart...

8th June, 2024.

Despite the increasingly warm Sunday temperatures on 2nd June, scores of eager dog owners and dogs arrived at Thirsk Auction Mart to register and proudly show off their canines of all breeds and none, to Channel Five favourite, “The Yorkshire Vet” Matthew Smith from Donaldson’s practice in Huddersfield and who had also previously worked at Thirsk Veterinary Centre, together with distinguished judge Steve Swallow of Breckspride Gundogs.

Everyone loved the friendly and engaging manners of the judges who put dogs and owners very much at their ease in the ring.

It was not an easy day of hard work for the judges, either, and they felt the heat and pressure at times.

The event was organized by Tracey and Bill Gilbert at Thalasair Labradors, Thirsk.
