By the time you are reading these notes I hope the weather will have calmed down to a more moderate temperature. I can not imagine what life would be like, i.e., like living in the desert where every day is the same hot.
Last Sunday Paignton held their championship show. Judging Salukis with CCs for the first time was Tom Johnston. Judging entry count by today’s standards he had an average entry. Except for a few shows most of the entries have been in the mid 20s. DCC, BOB went to Janey Stenson’s Ch Micattura All For Me. RDCC went to Classicus Odysseus at Ashahni owned by Cathy Harding & Naomi Cowley. BCC for her third and qualifying CC went to Denise Garratt, Sharon Oakey and John & Caroline Owen’s Glenoak Lunah from Caryna. She was born on 22nd May 2016 and her breeders are Dr. & Mrs E Hudson.

Hopefully for those planning on attending at Bournemouth Championship Show (Judge, Jean Wright), on Monday, it will not be so hot. This August has become a very busy mouth for dog showing.
