Judges    Dogs – Tony Moore (affix Tobarela)

               Bitches – Bill Blacker (affix Crossguns)




The North West featured well in the Puppy classes with Paul & Liz Stanway winning the Puppy Dog class with their Spanish import Little Earthquakes Powerstrike at Waystaff – pictured left

I think I surprised Liz a bit when I shouted to her for this shot.







This was followed up with Andy & Linzi Mayren winning Puppy Bitch with Joemikeste Queen Of The Nile at Fergiestaff (pictured below with Andy handling), this bitch going on to win Best Puppy bitch.


Tension mounted at the ringside as the judges discussed the Best Puppy award – it went to the Dog!




Getting back to winning ways were the Allsopps with their young dog Rubericla Trailbreaker taking the Junior dog class – Bryn looks a tad harassed here – dog looks cool though



Last but not least the Dog CC winner from Post Graduate was the Lewis’ Biggleswick Splash Of Ginge (pictured right), finely handled by breeder Karen Thomas – a great result for all concerned and a happy bunch they were as you can see in the photo below







This show took place the following day with Breed Specialist Frank McCann (affix Albastaff) as the Judge.

As far as North West members were concerned a number of creditable second placings:-  Paul Brady with his two dogs Calazde Black Hawk Warrior and Foylegarth Hakuna Matata in Puppy and Yearling respectively and further second places for the Ritchies with their dog Northsaltire Nice One Sam in Post Grad; the Martinez brothers with their dog Bullbrothers Dr Who in Limit Dog and the bitch Diamonds Of Blanch Princess in Junior;  and the Ryans with Ch Rubericla Black Starscream in Open Dog; the Owens with their bitch Kyraloebis Vive La Juicy At Tagstane from Yearling and finally Dave McKimm and Biggleswick Fifty Fifty.

I should also mention the Mayrens repeated the previous day’s win by taking first in Puppy bitch  with Joemikeste Queen Of The Nile at Fergiestaff but once again getting beaten for Best Puppy by the dog.

However the day belonged to the Stanway’s with their Australian import Mosstrooper Making Mischief At Waystaff not only being awarded the Bitch CC – she went on to be Best of Breed, but the real icing on the cake was that this CC was her third – say no more and another Champion in the Waystaff stable.





More icing – Little Earthquakes Powerstrike at Waystaff went two better at this show – best Puppy Dog, followed by Best Puppy

And we haven’t finished yet – Stormfire Crack The Code at Waystaff took the first place in Junior Bitch!!
