The weather was lovely and so were the dogs. There was morning coffee and pastries before judging. Following the judging, there was a luncheon for all Border Terrier friends and competitors.
Although we had a small entry this year and there were a number of absentees, the dogs and their people had a great time. Best of Breed went to GCH Mchill’s Hat Trick. WB, BOW, BOS was Meerly Smash Talk. WD was Bohunt Paw Me Another and RWD went to Greley’s Gimme Shelter @ Aldawn. Selects were Ch. Rangel Fizzing Wizzbees and Ch. Ott To Be Rockin’ the Louboutins. Best Otter Head was awarded to Ch. Bannerkin’s Rainmaker.
Puppy Sweepstakes winners were Best to Lndi’s Strong Tower and Best Opp to Lndi’s Eye of the Storm. Best Veteran was GCH Lndi’s Ricki Lake.
Congratulations to all the winners!
