24 May 2019 Breed Notes

It was a busy weekend for the Papillons with SKC and The Papillon Butterfly Dog Club of Scotland’s Championship show. For this week s notes I will give you SKC results followed by the Club show next week. Well respected Toy Specialist Mr Kevan Berry was judging our breed with challenge certificates for the first time and I hope he enjoyed going over the butterflies and moths.

SKC we hadn’t entered as Carolyn was judging at the show and with Glenn away in Las Vegas I had been appointed the title of official doggy sitter. Unfortunately Carolyn hurt her back and neck and was in considerable discomfort, with driving really aggravating the injury. Regretfully Carolyn had to say it was impossible for her to go, which upset her greatly as she hates letting anyone down, but it was the best decision to make as she would have just made things even more painful. Thank you to everyone that messaged Carolyn and myself and all the folk at the Club show for their concern. I passed on all your get well wishes when returning home from the show of which Carolyn was very grateful for your concern. She apologises to both SKC and all the exhibitors that had entered under her.

The principal breed winners for this show were as follows: BCC/ BOB Kirsty Miller and Evan Ryan’s Ch Feorlig Wake Up Maggie JW shCM, DCC/ BP Mandy and Callum Thornton’s youngster Milbu Ciciobello At Shevid (imp LVA). You must all be thrilled to bits, many congratulation Mandy, Dave and Callum. BV Kathy Smith’s Ch Papplewick Pretty In Pink At Adinaken JW shCM.

There are a couple of Open Shows to report on. Sue Morrell had a lovely day at the West Country Dog Club where Serenglade Leap of Faith for Temelora (Phalene) won BOB and TGP 2, and Tricianbri Harry Beau for Temelora won BP under Judge Ellie Mordecai. 

Chris Anderson with Pappretty I Want A Hero took BP at Coventry & DKA open show, the judge was breed specialist Christine Headly. Well done Sue and Chris, anyone else with results to share, we all want hear them.

Take care travelling to the shows and let’s hope for some sunny sunshine to make us smile. It always seems so much better when the Mr Sunshine has his hat on.
