Well, here we are again. There seems to be a huge amount of dissatisfaction with the show scene, the Kennel club and the dog press. Some predicting the total demise of dog shows! What do you think? Entry numbers have certainly decreased at many shows. Although having said that Bedford Open Show has an entry of over 30 Papillons, at the other end of the scale Worthing only saw two Papillons attending, how do you choose your shows, judge, venue, distance or, as is most likely, a combination of all three?

Well done to everyone placed.
So sorry to hear that Sheila Wilkinson has fractured her pelvis. Best wishes for a speedy recovery Sheila.
Congratulations to Evan Ryan and Kirsty Miller on their engagement. I’m sure all the Papillon people wish them well for the future.
There are a few critiques for Papillons on the KC web site. Here is the link but you may need to search again if the link doesn’t take you to the pap page.
Driffield has an entry of 73/76 Papillons. Best of luck to all those going and safe travels. We are entered but will be busy at home.
Not much for this week so please remember to send in any results, news and upcoming events.
