Arbroath Community Hall was the setting for the North of Scotland Toydog Society's group open show on Saturday and a few club members attended.
The Papillon entry was very high (49 dogs in 8 classes) and would have made the judge's journey over from Ireland well worth the effort. Linda's TJ did very well when he won his class and then Reserve Best Dog. Moira's Penny, at her very first show, behaved like an old pro and won her class, much to Moira's shock......and delight. A fellow exhibitor, in her capacity as a champ show judge, advised Moira not to look shocked when placed first but to look like it was a foregone conclusion that she would win! We'll be watching next time Moira.
Ria's Jasper had a creditable 2nd in his breed class and then Ria was well and truly put through her paces in a junior handling class. The judge also gave her an impromptu training session which proved to be quite helpful.
Jill's Chico won his breed class but I'm not sure whether he took Best of Breed. News of this and any other wins would be appreciated. I also hope to add a few more photos once I receive them.
Congrats to everyone!
