GroundDog Day hailed a huge success
The early rain couldn't dampen the spirits of the dogs or owners who came along on the 20th May to the Lincoln Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre for GroundDog Day.
With much to celebrate the day was hailed a huge success by everyone who attended; 20th May not only marked the very first GroundDog Day but was also the birthday of our founder Margaret Green, it was also almost 30 years to the day when Lincoln Farm opened on the Winterbourne Kingston site.
We would like to thank everyone who helped make the day such a huge success. With all the classes extremely popular here are a list of our winners on the day.

The event was a celebration of all things rehoming, many of the dogs at the show had found their forever home with Margaret Green Animal Rescue and it was an absolute pleasure to see them so happy with their families. One of these dogs was Pipper, who had recently been rehomed and who, with the assistance of her very generous owner, sponsored two of the classes on the day.
Keeping the energy going through the day Moonlight Agility put on two excellent displays, and also offered a chance for everyone to have a go, which was very popular, so much so, that even our mascot dog 'Mungo' went around the course.
Everyone was so generous and it was fabulous to see so many people with their dogs having such a great time.
