A super busy weekend of shows for our breed with UK Toy and the Club show on Saturday and a bunch of open shows across Friday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Entries certainly seemed to suffer at some of the open shows as can be expected with very few people being able to support all across 5 days able and one cant help but wonder if they had been more spread out how much better it would have been for the societies entries. UK Toy on Saturday saw Christine Hinton with 114 dogs entered and 21 absent on the day. Her BOB and DCC which was his first was Margaret Kempster and Gwen Rees’ Finnish Import Jammings Exclusive To Oolagha, with BCC, also her first going to Tina Dixon’s Slovakian Import Glorious Yasmine Heybett Avec Debrita, handled as always by daughter Dawn and who also got BPIB and then was awarded RBPIS under Mrs T M Jackson. Tina and Dawn also go the RDCC with Ch Debrita Don’t Stop Me Now JW so super day for them! RBCC when to Sarah Dunlop and Karen McLellan’s Ch Habiba Reign On, handled by Robert Dunlop, with Best Special Beginner going to Mrs A Lee’s Gizootys John Wayne With Marshadae and BVIB to Chris and Keith Attwood’s Ch Souldrop Chinese Whispers For Doonbeg JW who also won the Junior Handling Semi Final with Georgia Brown who qualifies or the Discover Dogs Final – great job and well done to all winners!
The Chinese Crested Dog Club’s Open Show was held after Judging of UK Toy and I must say I enjoyed the traffic free late run up to Stafford! Our judge was Stuart Smith who had an entry of 88 dogs making 104 entries with 26 absent on the day. Following on from her UK Toy success BIS & BPIS went to Glorious Yasmine Heybett Avec Debrita with RBIS going to Evelyn Frame’s RBB Elfallons Crazy Moon and BOS to Jane Olivers Ynchreenoo Boayl Faharane At Sarelidan JW. RBD went to Irene Cooper’s Rendream’s Credence, RBPIS to Helen Dodd’s Moulains Mighty Mouse Among Anadeia, with BVIS going to my own Leibwache Rufus Ruffcut and RBVIS and the Oldest Dog in Show to Mrs Richardson’s Illiana White Opal. Well done to all and thank to those to stayed and attended the clubs AGM also!
Onto open shows and at Keighley DCS Tracey McGowan & Marion Proctor’s Tramarllan Polar Icicle was BOB under Derfel Owen, with Julie Hampson’s Zerachiel Justin Illusion going BPIB. At Hyde DCS Limit Show Julie Hampon’s Zerachiel Ready to Rumble ShCM went BVIS under Luke Sampson, whilst at Dunstable DCS under Chris Toynton Simone Master’s Esquimaux Skin Deep went BOB and then Group 3 under Leila Tarabad and her Nicky Shakeshaft’s Doucia’s Show Boy was BPIB. At Eastwood CS, Anne and Stephen Hellmuth’s Shensong First N Foremost was BPIB and then topped the toy Puppy Group under Janet Heap and my own Estillinis the Huntsman At Casacavallo JW (Imp SWE) was BOB under Sophie Farnsworth. At Chippenham DCS Jane Mearns’ Lunacrest Hector’s Joy was BOB under Terry Purse and Brian Kirk’s Ajatiaza’s Squeeze Me Quick was RBOB. I know there were a few more shows over the weekend with breed classes but im afraid I don’t have results for those, but big well done to everyone on their successes for our breed!
Im sure everyone will take some time to recover from a busy weekend, but not long now until the main show season kicks off and hopefully we will start to get some nice weather in time for the first outside shows of the year, or us and our dogs will be needing wellies or wading boots!
Good luck wherever you are showing! And remember to have fun!
