Banff, Moray & Nairn CC held their first open show of the year at Lossiemouth community centre on Saturday 31st May. The hall was very busy with people and dogs and it became quite warm at times. It's a pity it couldn't have been an outdoor show as the weather was glorious.
June had two judging appointments at this show, as well as tackling the working group she also did a great job of the junior handling classes.
It was a good day for quite a few members of the club, many taking top honours and going home with some very impressive rosettes.
Heather's Sasha won her whippet class but was beaten for BOB by Liz's Erin who then went on to win the hound group and then Reserve Best in Show - well done!
Still with hounds, Bob's Luka was BOB and G2 and Erica and Dougie's Charlotte won her class but was beaten for BOB by Nicky's Alfie who then took G4.
Elizabeth's Bronni was BOB and G2. Also in gundogs, Marianne's Glenn won his NSC class and Jennifer's Riley was BOB.
In terriers Jock's Dram was BOB and G1, Sarah's Sasha was BOB and also placed in the group but I'm not sure of the place at the moment, will add it later. Daveena's Rowan was Best Terrier Puppy.
Linda's Mollie was Best AVNSC toy and G1, Sue's Rosa was BOB, G2 and Best Toy Puppy.
Morag's Arran was BOB and 4th in the pastoral group and Linda and Vic's Buddy was BOB.
In the working group Joanne's Annie was BOB and G3, Donna's River was Best Working Puppy and went on to Reserve Best Puppy in Show!
Caitlin won her junior handling class and then overall Best Junior Handler.
Congratulations to everyone!
If I've missed anyone, please let me know. Thanks to Jenny and Daveena for some of the photos, apologies for quality but the lighting in that hall makes it very difficult. Remember you can click on the photos to see them full size.
Best in Show was the Samoyed and Best Puppy the Tibetan spaniel.
