The Cochrane Hall, Alva, hosts a number of shows and last Sunday it was the turn of the Weimaraner Club of Scotland's Open Obedience show.
The hall sits in a park with the Ochil hills as a stunning backdrop. You'd never guess from the photo above just what a mudbath dogs and handlers had to contend with in the rings! Many dogs found the conditions hard to cope with, especially when it came to having to sit or lie down in puddles!
Jenny's Brint took the wet in his stride and took 2nd place in Beginners, just a quarter of a point behind the winner...so close yet again to winning out of Beginners. Margaret and Ellie were at their first open show and they also coped with all the mud and were placed a worthy 5th in Pre-Beginners. Well done to you both!
Thanks for the photos Margaret.
