A sunny Roseisle show

After the non-stop pouring rain of Thursday and subsequent flooding in the Moray area, it was a relief to have the sun shining on our companion show at Roseisle on Sunday. There was a great turn out, the kitchen and raffle did a good trade and a clear profit of £560 was made for our nominated charity, Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

Thanks to our judges, Karen Elmquist, Joanne Newsome and Fran Murtaugh. Thanks also to all the committee members, helpers and everyone who donated food and raffle prizes - it wouldn't have been possible without you!

It was almost a clean sweep of the top awards for club members with Heather's Sasha taking Best In Show, Morag's Logie was Reserve Best In Show and Les and Rita's Gus (handled by Caitlin) taking Best Puppy. Jennifer's Riley won a very large gundog class and Donna's River was 1st in the working class.

The obedience classes were well supported and again the club had some good results. The first class was won by Ria with Jasper and the top class by Jenny with Brint.

Glenn won the junior handling class and Ria came second.

Well done to everyone!
