The Puppy Show

The British summer is marked by wonderful events: Wimbledon, Henley, Royal Ascot and, of course The Puppy Show.

As in previous years there had been a practice earlier in the week. This is a low-key affair when hounds have an opportunity to overcome any reservations about appearing in front of an audience. This year there was also a chance for the audience to practise the drinking of Pimms! Many thanks.

A wicker picnic basket is more usual! 
The main event was splendid: kennels looked fine, hounds finer and the tea was scrumptious! We were lucky and honoured to have Mrs. P. Cairns and Mr O. Hill M.F.H. to judge the young-entry-to-be of 13 dog hounds and 13 bitches.

Dog Hounds: Badger, Bandit, Baptist, Barclay, (1st and Champion)  Barman, Bateman (3rd), Branston and Brigand, Dante, Daystar, Domino, Dorian (2nd) and Dover..
Bitches: Bagel, Ballad, Bayleaf, Barley, Bashful, Bracelet, Bramley, Bravery (1st), Daisy, Dolly, Dovetail (3rd) and Dowager (2nd).

Why not sponsor a hound for the coming season? E-maol for details.
