On Sunday the 9th of April The Northern Pug Dog Club hosted The Joint Breed Clubs Championship Show at their regular Championship Show Venue, Snaith Sports Hall, East of Riding in Yorkshire. There were 201 entries in total – 59 dogs (making 71 entries) for Dog Judge, Michelle Swinge (Balthazar) and 103 bitches entered (making 130 entries) for the bitch Judge, Carol Kirk (Hatella).
The Dog CC and Reserve Best in Show went to Sarah Mitchell and Mandy Albone’s Cedilla Remember me. It was his first ticket. The Reserve DCC went to Kath Storey’s CH Rhodenash Kotten Klyde JW.
The Bitch CC and Best in Show went to Nikki Cannon’s Flashnik Daisy Dream – again it was her first CC. The Reserve Bitch CC went to Liz Ward’s Felice Princess.
Nikki Cannon’s day got even better when her puppy bitch Roxmarr Heart of Glass at Flasknik won Best Puppy Bitch and Best Puppy in Show. Best Puppy Dog and RBPIS went to Sally Mackenzies Popinjay Philharmonic at Supersound.
Best Veteran Dog was won by Mr R Stewart’s Dog Abukadra the Diplomat, who was handled on the day by his Breede, Neil Poppleton. Best Veteran Bitch went to Karen and OIivia Tydeman’s CH Zuazu Royal Katherine JW.
Lastly, but but no means least …. the blacks. Best Black Dog and Best Black in Show went to Jeanette Richardson’s Snugglepug Black Stanley. Best Black Bitch and Reserve Best Black in Show went to Linda Scahill’s Purdypug the Dutcheess.
Best Black Puppy Dog and Best Black Puppy in Show went to Robin and Judith Coulter’s Blacobby Colliers Lad, and Best Black Puppy Bitch and Reserve Best Black Puppy in Show went to Sue Lee’s Tsuelena Black Lace.
It was an enjoyable well run show, with a friendly atmosphere. I throughly enjoyed my day, and am pleased to report the following results for “Team Ireland”. Boynhams Brasilia won the Junior Dog Class, and Popinjay Ruby Tuesday was 2nd in Special Puppy Fawn (both owned by Karen Murphy), so it was a worthwhile “trip over the pond.”
Thats it for this week folks!
