What a shame they've chosen the same date, I hope this new one won't end up losing a lot of money over this, I know these things can be very expensive to organise. The LT Doodlefest has built such an enthusiastic following over the years that it is bound to draw most of the potential supporters.

Right now, I'm not going to go to either. I'm far too old to get in playground scraps over a history that I know nothing about and more importantly do not care about.

I would have gone to both events because my doods would have had a fantastic time. Such a shame.

I don't think there is a spat going on - I think it's just an unfortunate clash :|

Thank you Bid, I didn't actually realise that Labradoodle Trust were having their show on the same date, it's been a difficult task to organise a date that suits all, I don't have any issue with Labradoodle Trust and I'm offended by some of the comments especially from Ben who knows me personally. I am looking at changing the date and I didn't realise the word Doodlefest was patented :cry:

I hope you can change the date, it would be such a pity to have the two events clashing.

Good idea Deb, after all your planning and hard work it would be a shame for it to clash . It's very gracious of you to change it so willingly . Hopefully lots of Doodlers will make it to both!!

Labradoodle Trust holds its Doodlefest around the same weekend every year. Surely the organisers of the 'New' Doodlefest could have checked there was no clash before announcing their dates? The LT is a fantastic organisation which dedicates itself to saving lots of Doodles who may otherwise have been PTS or passed from pillar to post. This Southern Doodlefest is not supporting the Trust and proceeds will not be helping this very worthwhile charity.

I just wonder if the name 'Doodlefest' was chosen to mislead members of ULKA? If so then the losers in all of this will be the Doodles! What a shame!

Now this really is getting ridiculous, as I said I don't have an issue of any kind with Labradoodle Trust, shame that some people have made it look that way.
I've already said I'm going to change the date but I don't have to choose Labradoodle Trust as my charity and I won't be made to feel bad for choosing someone else. Our chosen Charities are Tailwaggers and also Macmillan Cancer Trust as a very close friend and doodle owner is fighting cancer at the moment and also for the many people who have lost their battle, I doubt there are many people who have not been affected by cancer.

It would be great if the date of one event could be changed. Macmillan is particularly close to my heart and I would love to be able to go to both weekends, have a great time, meet lots of other doodle owners and raise a bit of money for charity.

I apologise that I have offended you Debbie.

having lots of labradoodle dog shows is great for owners, pets and for the charities they support.

You are right Debbie, Macmillan is a very worthwhile charity but my issue is not the charity but the name of the show. If not to mislead the members of UKLA who think this site is dedicated to different breeds of doodles and in particular The Labradoodle Trust, then why would you call your show the Southern Doodlefest? It shouldn't be difficult to give an honest answer to that.

LT and the doodles it rescues deserve the opportunity to have a successful show again this year when all breeds of doodles benefit. Your show also deserves to be successful for your deserving charities but when confusing members of UKLA like you have then of course people have an opinion and a right to voice that opinion.

Hasn't there just been a Scottish 'Doodlefest'? I'm sure I saw something on Facebook?

No, there was a Scottish Doodle Day last Saturday in aid of Labradoodle Trust. I know, because I organised it. Great day had by all. :D

I stand corrected! It looked like you had great fun :D I wish it had been closer, then I could have joined in!

It's just such a shame that some of the replies to this post have been a bit other than friendly - after all, all charities are worthwhile, and that is the important thing here!
