For the North of England Keeshond Club’s Open show Keith Baldwin has drawn an entry of 35 dogs making 41 entries and Gillian Hull-Greaves an entry of 16 for the Special Awards classes held on Saturday, 16th February; which is after the Club’s AGM.

Exhibitors who are only attending the Open Show are requested not to enter the hall with their dogs and equipment etc before the AGM has closed and before the show opens at 12.00pm; with the judging starting at 1.00pm with the Special Award Classes. Raffle prizes will be much appreciated.

Keesies were busy flying the flag last weekend as at the Utility Breeds Association of Wales Open show Sue Lindsay’s Mezanda Madog’s Storm got BOB from judge Ann Wildman. Hamley handled as usual by David, then went on to win Best in Show from judge Meg Purnell Carpenter.
At the other end of the country at Calendonian DSC open, Keesies had just 1 class for judge Sue Bird, with 6 dogs entered. Sarah Murray and Flatmeer Flightberry got 2nd place with Best Puppy and then went on to win Utility Group 3 from judge Marion McArdle.
If any of you have been out and about either doing or winning things with your Keesie, then please let me know; as if you don’t blow your own trumpet then no-one else will!!
