BMNCC's second open show of the year was held at Lossiemouth on Saturday 31st October. It may have been Halloween but the warm and sunny weather made it feel more like a summer day. What a shame we were indoors!
Being a local show, there were plenty of club members present and many took top honours. Going all the way to the very top was June's Benson as he won his class, the working group and was then declared Best In Show - his 5th such award. Congratulations!
Also in the working group, Joanne's Walter was BOB and G2.
Terriers - Cathy's Sula took Best NSC and G1, she later went Best Opposite Sex In Show. Karen's Ceilidh took BOB and G2, I think.
Toys - Sue's Desmond won his class, Jill's Chico won his NSC class but was beaten to Best NSC by Linda and Ron's Esmee, who then went G4. Chico's little brother, Tiger, kept the Chin flag flying by taking Best Toy Puppy and then Reserve Best Puppy In Show.
