Leeds Championship Dog Show was held in superb weather If perhaps a little hot for dogs.
Judge Anne Hardy gave Best of Breed Glen of Imaal Terrier and Dog ticket to Mrs J Howarth’s Donvaleset Liffy at Arkview with the bitch ticket going to Mr C Squires and I.OW Squires Young May Moon.The two reserves were Dog Mrs Quinn’s Kirklee Ronan O’Gara and Bitch Mrs Baldock’s Ch Jeonty Maybe Dayse, respectively, Best Puppy was Dr J Alstead’s Pajantick Golden Spurs. Just a curiosity here but Young May Moon and Golden Spur are actually siblings (not litter siblings) so is the Pajantick a mistake?
In the USA it was 2 Best of Breeds for Glentyrs Lady Isabella at Castlerock and a Best of Breed for GCH Emerald isle Keely with Daulton at Dan Emmett KC with GCH Finnabair Song of My Heart Taking BOB and Group 4 at Marion Ohio Kennel Club. Finland, enjoying a glorious heatwave, saw Glenrosedale Aoibheann Nion Rós win BOB at Porvoo and became also Finnish and Swedish Champion with Taramont Iora Rua being Best Veteran. Helsingin Kennel Club saw Gleann Ungus MacGuire get the nod for BOB with Glenrosedale Aoibheann Nion Rós Best Opposite
Many congratulations to all!
