A sunny dog show at Kelso.

Sometimes the sun DOES shine in Scotland. This was one of those days when it shone throughout the country. The huge golfing umbrellas, always carried in the car, were needed today for shade. Sometimes we wish we could have a bit more of this weather then organising an outdoor event would be a bit easier. Most outdoor shows provide "wet weather" accommodation and not without good cause. Some shows press ahead with none but this can have a serious effect on the attendance at future shows if it turns out cold, wet and miserable! They could be lucky however, as was the case today with a show in Aberdeen.
This turned out to be a very good choice of show for me that day as Swallow (Meerwings The Swallow Tale by Pyatshaw, photo in the header) ended up by winning Reserve Best in Show. The winner was an English pointer.
