DOG EXHIBITORS collected at Home park last weekend for Windsor championship dog show, my personal favourite on the circuit.

The weather was expected  to be hot over the four days, especially so on Saturday with temperatures reaching 34 degrees. As always there was a no dogs in vehicle policy for the safety of the dogs,  the committee followed this to the letter and luckily there were no incidents reported. 

Secretary Mrs Irene Terry told OUR DOGS that she was pleased with how the show went and was very impressed with her officers and committee. She also said there was not much to say as the show was going ever so well!

Mrs Britt-Marie Young and her team had lots to do in the overseas tent with people coming in from 18 different countries. Windsor saw visitors from Argentina, Austria, Barbados, Belgium, Cyprus, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Israel, Japan, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Russia, Sweden, Tasmania and the USA.

Special wins!

Over the whole show there were 42 dogs winning their first CC and 14 dogs winning their crowing third CCs. In Border Terriers Mrs J Guvercin must have been pleased in gaining the double, making both her dog and bitch up.
