The Scottish Kennel Club's first champ show of the year was held at Ingliston over the three days May 15th - 17th. Exhibitors on the first day had to put up with the usual Ingliston wind as well as cold temperatures and rain. Those attending on the second and third days were much luckier as conditions improved.
I only have a few photos to post but there are quite a few results to report.
Erica and Doug's George did very well to win his Post Grad Dog class and Willow was second in Post Grad Bitch.
Elizabeth and George had two wins in the Bolognese classes. Lola won her Junior class and then Best Puppy, Giovanni was first in Post Grad and both Rosa and Lily were placed second in their classes.
Morag's Logie was first in his Junior class and then took Reserve Best Dog.
Daveena's Rowan beat sister Poppy in their Post Grad class and then went on to Reserve Best Bitch.
Linda and Ron's Esmee was first in her Puppy Bitch class.
A few others with Crufts qualifying places:
Jill's Chico was third in his Limit Dog class, whilst Evie and Suki were second and third in their Puppy Bitch class. June's Benson was third in Junior Dog. Sue's Finlay was second in his Post Grad class.
Mention must be made of a few others who just missed out on qualifying places but who took well earned places in large classes:
Liz's Poppy was fifth out of 12 in Yearling Bitch and Bunty took fourth in a class of 13 Post Graduate bitches.
Katrina's Star also just missed out with a fifth place out of 12 in Limit Bitch.
Well done to all of you!
(Don't forget to let me know if I've missed anyone out).
