Sunday 24th May 2015
Overseal Village Hall, Woodville Road, Overseal, Derbyshire DE12 6LU
A good entry kept me very busy. It is so good to cater for another group of show people. I was really impressed with the young handlers and hope they continue with the dog showing bug in the future. Lovely rosettes 1st to 5th, and a voucher for £5 for Royal Canin dog food for placed dogs.
Class 1 - Any Variety Minor Puppy - 6 To 9 Months
- BMD Standing alone but a really nice puppy a little inexperienced at first (as expected) but settled well. Nicely presented. A good future for dog and young handler.
Class 2 - Any Variety Puppy - 6 to 12 Months
A few puppies were a little shy but with careful handling will realise life is not so scary. I wouldn't push them. Good class a lot of variety.
- British Bulldog - 10 months. Confident full of energy, lovely head and expression. Compact body.
- BMD Well grown rage and nicely presented. Well done to young handler
- Golden/Poodle Black luxuriant coat. The expression of joy with a hint of mischief won me over.
Class 3 -Any Variety Adult - Over 12 Months
Great variety in this class - very hard to choose as there were so many beautiful dogs
- Australian Sheepdog Good even red merle colouring, confident friendly temperament. Excellent movement, athletic body, good general health
- Shiba Inu Beautiful head and expression, with strong cobby little body
- Golden Retriever Nicely presented and in lovely physical condition
- Border Collie
- Siberian Husky
Class 4 - Any Variety Veteran - Over 7 Years
A good class of oldies
- Border Collie - 12 Years Nice head, well set ears. Fit condition, moved so well
- Cocker Spaniel - 11 Years Difficult to believe this veterans age, and little grey but as a Roan well “disguised”. Fit condition and nicely trotting out
- Whippet - 13 years Lovely shape - giving no indication of age but a true veteran
Class 5 - Most Attractive Dog/Bitch
Again loads of variety and some really lovely dogs
- Shiba Inu Striking colouring, pleasing outline kept drawing my attention and as in the title of the class, this dog fulfilled the criteria
- Lhasa Apso When spoken to, this little dog's eyes lit up – (I could just see them) expression was gorgeous, it did it for me
- Golden/Poodle – Black With the most beautiful coat - thick, glossy and wavy. Lively expression and friendly temperament
Class 6 - Any Variety Pedigree Dog/Bitch
- Cocker Spaniel Pleasing head & shape, nicely presented
- Whippet Nice clean outline and so elegant on the move
- Shiba Inu Beautiful head and expression. Firm cobby body
- Lhasa Apso
At 12 years of age, probably deserves the title and I hope as a few more years of herding the geese
I will not forget him in a hurry. His exuberance and love of life fulfil the title of best “puppy”
