Scottish Kennel Club - Championship Show

On the 27th August 2011, I set off to Scotland with Dave Mitchell (Peasblossom) & Celia Woodbridge (Crackerjanne). Leaving at Midnight and driving through the night to reach Edinburgh for the start of the show. The show was on Sunday 28th august

First up was Chaos, in the Minor Puppy Dog class, which he won. Next was Banjo in the Puppy Dog class, delighted when he won his class also.

Celia had 2 firsts with her two dogs and Dave had 2 seconds, so not a bad day in all.

I had to go back in the challenge with Banjo, who had previously been declared 'best puppy dog' to challenge the puppy bitch - DELIGHTED that Banjo won 'Best Puppy In Breed'.  Unfortunately there was no puppy group at this show

But it did mean we could get on the road and head for home!!!

A long day, but pleased with the results
