No, we didn't win, BUT, we came second! The Scottish Kennel Club organises a competition to encourage people to enter the Open shows and points are awarded for 1st to 3rd in every class entered, for Group placings and, of course for Best in Show.
Mo had won quite a few Best of Breed awards in 2o10 so I totted up his points and sent off his form. A short time later we received a letter inviting us to the competition at the beginning of February. It took the form of a knock-out match, so, of course, there was an element of luck involved.
The winner was the massive, magnificent, black Newfoundland, Ch. Scotiabear Talk of the Town at Rathmil and Reserve Best in Match was my Mo,Pyatshaw Ravel, pictured in the header photo.
