Last Sunday saw Perthshire Canine Club's Open show at the Ice rink in Perth. This turned out to be one of the warmest days of the year so far but you wouldn't have known it if you were inside the rink! It's a pretty good venue for a show, large and spacious with a birds-eye view of the rings from the cafe upstairs. This was a well attended show with large classes.
Nicky was in celebratory mood after Alfie won his class, Best of Breed and Group 4. This gave him the last two points he needed to gain his Show Certificate of Merit. Well done Alfie!
Ria and Jasper had a very busy weekend. On Saturday they attended the Scottish Pug Champ show at Haddington, their first breed champ show, and had a great day despite not getting placed. However, another day and another show, Perth turned out to be much more successful. Jasper was placed a creditable 2nd in a good sized breed class and then won his AV graduate class. On top of that, Ria won her Junior Handling age class and then went on to take overall Best Junior Handler! I think this qualifies them for Richmond next year.
One other first place that I know of is Linda and Ron's William. He won his class and Best of Breed.
