Keith Companion Show

Sunday's companion show at Keith saw yet another Best In Show for a Spey Valley member, the third one that weekend. This time it was Elizabeth's Asher who took the top honour and not far behind, with Reserve Best In Show, was Morag's Logie.

There was a new layout for the show this year and the dogs were much more a part of the whole show than in previous years. This seems to have helped the entry enormously and the classes were well filled. No doubt the good weather helped there too.

It was a good show all round for Spey Valley. Erica and Doug's Charlotte won the hound class, Karen's Poppy the terrier, Donna's River the working, Elizabeth's Malibu the toy, Jenny's Sadie the pastoral and Sue's Louis was Best Veteran. It was a clean sweep in the Junior Handling with Ria winning the 6-11 year class and Caitlin the 12-16 year and Best Overall Junior.

Congratulations everyone!

Thanks to Sian for the photos of River and Charlotte.

Wonder what these two were discussing?
