The latest Cramlington Doggy Day has been declared ‘paw-some’!
June 21, 2022
Short and sleek, big and fluffy – all sorts of dogs attended Eastfield last Saturday to meet like-minded Cramlington residents who went to check out the advice and information on offer as well as socialise with other dogs and their owners.
Northumberland County Council Animal enforcement officer Gemma Fowle was on hand to check microchips, and chip dogs, and she also encouraged owners to sign up to the Northumberland Green Dog Walkers scheme.
Cramlington-based Charity, Dogs First Animal Rescue, was there to talk about fostering and adopting animals and also hosted a dog show, which was judged by Gemma Fowle and Pauline Wales.
Cramlington Town Councillor Christine Dunbar organised the event and she was delighted with the response. She said “There was a fabulous turnout to the Eastfield Doggy Day which was held to promote responsible dog ownership. Thank you to everyone who helped make the day such a success by supporting the event. There were waggy tails and smiles everywhere – wonderful!“

They were all entered into the Best in Show category which was won by Pip, a 13 year old Black Labrador who is suffering from cancer. It was wonderful to see the amazing bond she has with her owner, Sarah.
Reserve Best in Show was Jax, the Saluki, a stunning, 3-year-old rescue, owned by Laura.
