Scottish Shetland Sheepdog Club Open Show 13/11/11

RosettesWhat a day. Lots of highs and lows. Poor Grace took poorly and got taken to hospital in an ambulance. My car got totally stuck in the mud but Leanda managed to get it out with some nifty off road driving. I really want a 4×4, especially for dog shows!

Lots of lovely wins today. Julie & Angus won their classes and Leanda & Sassy’s dad Blaze got best dog and reserve best in show. Derena won her class with Charm and I won yearling with Sassy. Carol got Best Puppy in Show. Don went Best in Show with lovely Evie.

Sassy was perfect in her class, think that was the best she has shown yet. She behaved really well and moved well. She was awful in the challenge though, wouldn’t behave and barked. She just wanted to play with Isobel’s puppies, one of which managed to slip her lead and do a runner, twice. Very cute.

We had some extra classes when BIS was over and Sassy got Best Sable. The Rosette is absolutely stunning and made by our Judge, Mrs McCourt. We heard later on that Grace had recovered and was on her way home. A happy end to a very long day.
