Highland CA Open Show

Highland CA held their annual summer show at Dingwall Mart on Saturday 31st July. The rain threatened a few times but never really came to anything, which was a good thing seeing as the gundog, working and pastoral rings were all outdoors.

It was a good day for Spey Valley with lots of wins for members, including the top spot, which was won by June's Benson. I think this must be his 10th Best In Show!

Linda and Ron's Hugo was also up there at the top, he took Reserve Best Puppy In Show!

Plenty of others to report:

Terrier - Jock and daughter Ann's Rosie (I think) took BOB and G1, puppy Zac was Best terrier pup. Cathy's Sula was Best NSC and G2. Karen's Ceilidh was BOB, took G4 and Best terrier veteran.

Gundog - Heather's Skye was Best NSC and also took the group. Sue's Jana won her class then BOB and G3. Katie's Chewie was BOB. Sue's Kendal and Logan both won their classes and BOB.

Utility - Linda and Ron's Denzil won his class, BOB and G2, Hugo Best Utility puppy and RBPIS. Morag's Logie was Best Import.

Toy - Sue's Elwood, Rosa and Pansy each won their respective classes, Pansy took BOB and G1. Elwood was Best toy puppy and Gypsy was Best toy veteran. Jill's Tiger was BOB and G2. Ria's Jasper won his class, BOB and G3. Linda's Esmee was Best NSC and G4.

Pastoral - Linda's Gino won his class, BOB and G4 (I think). Katrina's Marty won his Graduate class.
