Country Fair – Factoid Number 12!

St Ewe Country Fair – 21st August 2016

Factoid Number 12

Did you know?  

About the talking dog?

We always hold a fun dog show at the Fair. One year someone enquired if we had a category for talking dogs? Sceptical, the judges asked for proof. The owner took his canine friend over to the wood turner’s tent and selecting a piece of sandpaper asked the dog what he thought. The dog ran his paw over the sandpaper and replied “Ruff”. He won best in class.

There are categories for all kinds of proud pooch, motley mongrel and perfect puppy. We’re very happy to have dogs on leads at the fair so please bring yours along this year and be sure to enter the show.

10 weeks to this year’s fair!

The St Ewe Country Fair returns after a break in 2015 and to countdown to the great event we post a new factoid here each week.

Put the date in your diary – 21 AUGUST 2016.

You can look out for these posts each week on Facebook and here on the St Ewe Parish website (
