No photos from SKC but quite a few good results. If I've missed any, please let me know.
Three who won their post grad classes were Katrina's Star, Erica and Dougie's Willow and Roseanne's St John.
Karen's Fergus took BOB (Karen had a fair idea this would be the case beforehand!)
Daveena's Inka also took BOB.
Lynne's Pomona won her junior and post grad classes and then went on to BB.
Helen's Kez did extremely well to take 2nd, beating 18 others, in a huge open class.
Sue's Pansy was 3rd in good sized limit and open classes and this means that she now has her stud book number.
Well done everyone!
Well done to Karen and Ceilidh who took Best Bitch.
Lynne's new import, Pomona, had a great day winning her puppy class then going on to RBB and best puppy.
Big congratulations also to Elizabeth and Bronni who not only took BCC but also BOB!

The entry was down on previous years but the conditions obviously had an effect. Things actually went from bad to worse during the night, there was an absolute downpour and organisers were forced to cancel the second day of the agricultural show. Let's hope for better next year.
Brave (or is it foolhardy?) club members who turned out and squelched their way round the ring had some good results. Karen's Lily did the best by going RBIS, Morag's Arran had yet another Best Veteran, Joan's Bo won junior, June's Barney won the working class and Sue's Pansy won the toy class. Best in Show was won by the Irish setter for the second year running! Well done to everyone.
We are very grateful to our judge, Ann Layte, for stepping in at extremely short notice. Good job she brought her wellies.
We know Joan's Ruddi is a little overweight but her attempt to pass him off as a gundog was never going to work!

Congratulations to Joanne and Annie who came out on top at what turned out to be yet another wet and muddy outdoor 'summer' show. Despite the awful conditions, the open show managed to go ahead, unlike the companion show scheduled for the following day. Due to the continual rain, the showground became flooded and the second day had to be cancelled altogether.
It was worth braving the elements for many club members with quite a few winning red rosettes.
In the working group Joanne's Annie added another BIS to her collection, June's Barney was BOB and Brodie also did well by being placed 2nd in a large veteran (7-9 years) class.
Linda and Ron had a doubly good day as Leila was BOB and Leo took Best Utility puppy.
Equally good in terriers, Lorna's Lucy was Best AVNSC, G2 and Lottie Best Terrier puppy, Karen's Molly won the veteran 10+ class.
Joan's Bo continued his winning streak by taking AVNSC Hound and G2. Liz's Erin was BOB as was Joanne's Flash.
In the pastoral group Katrina's Chance was BOB and G3 and her Cosmo was also BOB. Jenny's Brint retained his crown by going BOB.
Well done everyone!
Thanks to Morag for reporting results and taking photos.
