Dundee Canine Club

Camperdown Country Park, Dundee is where Dundee CC hold their annual Open show. It's a lovely setting, with many lovely mature trees dotted about, as you can see from the above photo. Conditions were ideal on June 12th with frequent sunny spells - enough to make for a few red faces the next day! Ground conditions were not quite so ideal due to the number of rabbit droppings that were scattered over all the rings! Not so easy keeping dog's heads up with such tempting scents about - especially for those breeds closer to the ground!

June's Benson was on top form again, he took Best Of Breed, then the group and finished it off with yet another Best In Show! Congratulations!

The show is big and there was a lot happening at once so I'm not too sure about how everyone did. Please let me know if you did well.

Toy - Jill's Tiger and Chico were both 1st in their respective classes and Tiger took BOB. Ria's Jasper also won his class, BOB and then G4. Elizabeth and George's Lola was BOB. Sue's Elwood was 2nd in a large breed Puppy class but went one better by winning the AV Minor Puppy Stakes class plus £10 to boot! (It all helps towards those fuel costs!)

Pastoral - Morag handled Jenny's Sadie to win her class, BOB and then to win a very large group! Katrina's Leo won his Limit class and then BOB.

Terrier - Daveena's Inka was Best AVNSC and Caitlin's Solo was BOB and 2nd in Puppy.

Gundog - Katie's Lara won her Post Grad class. Lynne's Phoebe was 4th in a large Junior Bitch class.

Junior Handling - Glenn was Best Junior Handler and this qualifies him for SKC finals, Crufts 2011 and Richmond.

Well done to everyone!

There could well be more news but you'll need to let me know. Not many photos either, I'm afraid. Thanks to Karen for sending some in.
