There is plenty going on this weekend so nobody should be sitting at home bored!
Apart from Belfast champ show, there are two open shows, Perth CC at Dabbs Centre, Ladybank, on Saturday and Angus & Kincardineshire CA at Arbroath on Sunday. The Scottish Beagle Club is also holding a breed open show on Saturday at Rigside.
For those of you who haven't entered any of these shows and might be at a loose end, don't worry, there are two companion shows being held on Saturday too!
Strathspey Canine Club will be holding theirs at Nethybridge Public Hall. There will be five pedigree classes, seven novelty and these will be judged by (our own) Mr John Anderson. There will also be three obedience classes, judged by Mr Jim Reekie. Entries will be taken from 12 noon, judging at 1pm. Entries for the pedigree and obedience classes will be taken up until 1pm and for the novelty up until 2pm. This show is worth going to for the home baking alone!
The other companion show will be held at Aden Country Park, Mintlaw and is in aid of Mrs Murray's Rehoming Centre. Judging will take place in three rings starting at 12 noon with entries taken from 11am. Miss Mary McCance will be judging the nine pedigree classes, Mr Jack Carle the eight novelty and Miss Tracey Little the three obedience classes.
Both shows are held under Kennel Club rules and regulations. No dog under six months old can be entered.
Good luck to everyone, wherever you may be, here's hoping there'll be lots of results to post. Take a camera and send in the photos please.
