On Friday 7th September it was Toy Day at Richmond Championship Show, were Pugs were judged by Breed Specialist Elaine Arnold-Stronge. There was an entry of 90 dogs, with 36 absentees.
The Dog CC and Best of Breed was awarded to Hilary Linnett’s Open Dog Conquell at a Glance JW (or Arthur to his friends). It was Arthurs first CC; if my memory serves me right he has two reserve CC’s. Hilary and Arthurs day got even better when Arthur won the Toy Group under Margaret Mallows. They represented our breed perfectly in Best in Show on Sunday past. Huge Congratulations to Hilary!
The Reserve Dog CC was awarded to Molly Billis’s Pugalicious Crown Jewels at Megmolu – the winner of the Yearling Dog Class.
In Bitches the CC was awarded to Phelps- Terrets & Phelps Bilokha Bang Tidy, the winner of the Junior Bitch Class – it was the bitches 1st CC. The Reserve ticket went to Dawn Bailey’s Hattella Tulip at Lampugs. Tulip now had 2 CC’s and 3 reserve CC’s.
Not only did Hilary Linnett win Best of Breed, with Arthur, she also won Best Puppy with Arthurs young nephew Conquell Champers on Ice. A Carlsberg Day if there ever was one!
Best Veteran was won by Janet & John Denton’s Tremorvah Cornish Blossom; and Molly Crisp Reid continued her winning streak in the Best Special Beginner’s Classes, by winning overall with Bubbapug Mamma Mia.
In Ireland there were two back-to-back shows held at The Ulster Flying Club, Newtownards on the 8th and 9th of September. On the 8th, it was Bangor & District Canine Societies All Breed Championship Show. Pugs were judged by Mr H Kvivesen, a Norwegian Terrier Specialist.
The Dog Green Star was awarded to Fallon’s CH Clodana Expellimus, An Ch17, Jun Ch, CJW17, and the reserve to Murphy’s Boynhams Brasilia, Jun Ch. The Bitch Green Star and Best of Breed went to Fisher’s Flash of Joy Inanamorata, and the Reserve to Coogan’s Buzleo Light My Fire, CW18, CJW18.
The Following day at Banbridge All Breed Championship Show Pugs were judged by A Foss, a Norwegian FCI Group 2 Specialist. The Dog Green Star went to CH Clodana Expellimus, AnCh17, Jun Ch, CJW 17; no reserve was awarded, as Expellimus was the only male present on the day. The Bitch Green Star, and Best of Breed went to Coogan’s Buzleo Light My Fire, CW18, CJW18, and the reserve to her other bitch, Buzleo LA Woman.
That’s all for this week!
