The Northern BMD Club held their Championship show last weekend, the first of this year's
breed club Championship shows.
Held at Thirsk Farmers Market, it was a chilly day weather-wise and a few exhibitors have
reported that the venue was especially well ventilated (!) but as Marian Scott wrote in an email to
me afterwards " the dogs were all comfortable and there was no panting or overheated dogs. The service was superb and the ring was a good size."
Breed specialist Tom Kelly (Belhof) had travelled down from Scotland and counting the entry from
the results Marian emailed to me (Thanks Marian) there were 99 entries with 17 absentees plus
1 exhibit withdrawn across 20 classes.
