Breed Notes (Our Dogs - Craig Hosie) - 15 Feb 2018
Starting with show results this week, we had National Working & Pastoral Breeds Open show which was held at the Sports Connexion, Coventry where our judge Mrs Allyson King ( Allyking ) had 3 classes, with only one entry and Lucy Campbell was flying the flag with her puppy Micona Juliet taking BP and BOB. This was a good experience for Nova and a very well done in supporting the classes. Show news from Ireland last night on face book that Mick Murphy took BOB with his puppy Micona Foxtrot and then went on to win 4th BIS at The Molosser Breeds Association of Ireland , what a fantastic achievement and also picked up a second in the brace class, well done Mick and Beamish. Anne Stewart also had her Blonde puppy at this show and picked up a Second in puppy dog behind his brother Beamish, and he also got a second in the puppy stakes and then Anne took a first place with Sonsie in the Ladies Handling class. What a fantastic day for Hovawarts , well done everybody.
