There does not seem to be much to report from the Houndshow where the Finnish Spitz judge was Gavin Robertson. Of the 12 dogs entered two were absent, and two more arrived too late to be judged, with a third being just in time to get into her class. Three more only just made it, as a result of a phone call to their owners/exhibitors in their caravan. We all miscalculated the possible time of judging, as we only knew how many entries had been made in the breed judged before us, which had two judges, and did not know that the judge of the dogs would go on to his next breed before judging of that other breed was complete.
BOB with the only CC awarded, and also BV, was Ch Toveri Pimu, with the RCC going to T Tuula, both bitches being owned by Hannah and Rob Thompson and Angela Cavill. BP was T Oona, owned as the other two plus David Cavill. Pimu was later pulled out in the last eight for BIS.
