After the washout that was Blackpool where our entry of just seven dogs could not be judged, we had Windsor where the entry was also seven dogs.
Wendy Sharman last judged our breed at the FS Society open show in 2010. We had a 100 per cent turnout, and a search for our benches which were never found.
We were fortunate that the weather was kind, despite heavy rain on the morning of the day before, and the ground was good, both in the covered parts of the rings and out in the open.
BOB was Irene Slater and Theo Hardwick’s Valokki Soren who went on to be pulled out in the last eight in the group. RBD was my Puulatva The Red Norseman among Inkivaari.
BB was Clare and Brian Masters’ Ch Toveri Neiti, and RBB Tanja Mortimer and Calen Taylor’s T Maikki.
