07 October 2016 – Our Dogs

Driffield Championship show was held on Sunday 2nd October, so thankfully the motorway network was relatively clear on the way to the show. But the closure of the A42 linking into the M42 on the way home proved a wee problem for some of us. I really like the idea that we can drive to the rear of our tents and park up close. But I found getting the trolley over the wet and boggy ground a little problematic. Once inside, the benches were opposite our ring, so all-round very convenient. We had another overseas exhibitor at this show. Kathleen Roosens with her De Costalina_ Daydream Believer team of Papillons, what a charming and graceful exhibitor she is and we all hope to see you back again soon. Our Judge on the day Eddie Bishop worked through his entry and found his Best Of Breed in my Ch Omegaville Make Me A Petitchien. This was Lucy´s 11th CC this year and we were thrilled to represent the breed in the group ring. Whilst unplaced she went around the ring as if she owned it, so she represented the breed with pride and style. Wendy Waters was busy on the day handing out the schedules for the Northern and Eastern Club Open Show. This will be held at Willoughby Village Hall at Selby on Sunday 6th November 2016. The Judge is Ms Ann Stevenson (Jeminai). Entries close on Sat 8th October.
