Our annual Northern Open show for 2018 took place on Sunday 15th April with judge Graham Hill officiating in the main show. Paige Spencer judged our lunchtime Junior Handling and Special Members Awards. Despite the forecast of rain the Grenoside charm worked and it stayed dry all day, even if not with the normal blazing sunshine. Although the entry was a little bit down the show seemed busy and active all day and the kitchen was doing a roaring trade in butties and home made cakes.
Best in Show was June Miles’ 2 year old bitch Jaybiem Burli Shassi JW winning from Graduate Bitch and Res Best In Show was Karen Bird and Shandy Bridges’ 3 year old Kernow Something ShCM. Best Puppy was Wendy Hamilton’s 6 month old male Padiky Monsoon Monty (shown by Paige Spencer) and Best Veteran was Gary Griffiths, Mandy Orme and Violet Slade’s Ch Jaybiem Vou Doo at Potterspride JW. Reserve Best Dog was Tony Granger’s Orlando Bloom at Jaybiem who also claimed Res Best Bitch with Shirdees Harlow Jean of Shadybower JW.
We would like to thank everyone who came to our show today and supported our event and all the people who worked all day to keep things rolling especially Jeanette and the kitchen crew Anthea, Alison and Angela, David Robertson on the raffle and Helen’s assistant Sarah on the Bernershop. Gary Dybdall was our main show steward and kept the show moving along all day.
Congratulations to all our winners and we hope everyone, win or lose, had a great day at our friendly show.
