We seem to be in the height of the show season right now, thankfully, unlike the Afghans we have only one show per day. Bournemouth Championship Show was held last Monday. In spite of the intense heat there was plenty of covering and watering bowls to keep everyone coolish. On the downside there were few entries on the lower classes. The total number of males entered was 6. With new puppies reaching the age they can be shown, hopefully the entries will increase. Judging at Bournemouth was Jean Wright.
