Border Union champ show takes place in the lovely town of Kelso, right beside the river, making it a popular place for show folk to camp. The weather makes all the difference of course, previous years have seen plenty of rain but this year the sun was beating down on lots of happy campers.
Quite a few club members attended and many achieved good results.
June's Benson is now three points nearer his Junior Warrant as he won his Junior Dog class and then went on to take the RCC! Congratulations! Best of luck for Blackpool this weekend.
The only hound group result I found was Liz's Bunty who was first in a large Post Grad Bitch class.
The toy group provided most of our results. Ria was very excited when Jasper qualified for Crufts by taking second place in Junior Dog, not only that but he went on to win Novice Dog. Jasper's ringside fan club were also very excited!
The Pamojill dogs had a good day with Tony winning his Puppy Dog class, Suki first in Junior Bitch and Chico taking second in Limit Dog and then Reserve Best Dog.
Linda's TJ was second in a large Open Dog class.
Elizabeth's Malibu was second in Post Grad Bitch.
Linda and Ron's Esmee was second in Junior Bitch.
Elizabeth and George's Lola was first Puppy Bitch, Rosa first Post Grad Bitch, Lily first Limit Bitch and Reserve Best Bitch. Giovanni was also in the cards with a second in Junior Dog.
In utility, Morag's Logie was first Junior Dog and then took Reserve Best Import Dog.
Linda and Ron's Denzil was 2nd in Puppy Dog and Leo 2nd in Limit Dog.
In pastoral, Linda's Gino won his Graduate class.
Katrina's Leo was third in Junior Dog.
Jenny's Sadie just missed out on qualifying when she took a fourth in a good sized Puppy Bitch class. She was handled in the ring by Morag, who gets the prize for the smartest dressed GSD exhibitor and who managed to keep her cool even after endless laps of the ring! Eurasiers are so much easier to handle, aren't they Morag?
Well done to everyone and good luck to all of you who are at Blackpool this weekend. Hopefully the weather will be nothing like last year when tents were blown down and the show had to be abandoned!
