All roads led to the NEC on Friday for Bernese exhibitors this annual extravaganza. This year there were 203 entries with 29 absentees across 20 classes (there were no entries in Minor Puppy Dog) for all-rounder judge Hedd Richards, well known for his (and wife Del's) Sheridel Newfoundlands.

For comparison at Crufts 2018 there were 222 entries with 50 absentees for breed specialist judge Angela Haden (Cotshill)

The Mail online published a new story with photos of some of the dogs arriving at the show including a photo of Julie Baldwin with a quartet of Bernese although the name of the breed eluded the reporter who simply described them as "beautiful white, brown and black dogs"!

The article can be viewed here;

Winning the Open Dog class, his 51st CC plus Best of Breed was Carole Hartley-Mair & Gary Dybdall's 4 year old Ch Meadowpark High Class. A son of Ch Meadowpark Vertigo JW x Meadowpark Northern Blend, 'Milo' went on to take Working Group 2 judged by Finnish judge Elina Haapaniemi. The TV coverage of the Group judging gave viewers at home the opportunity to watch a short clip of each of the dogs being evaluated and despite being at the end of a very long day 'Milo' was showing NO signs of being tired, he was on his toes, full of energy and character and it was great to see this crowd-pleaser exuding confidence and such enjoyment; his happiness and ring presence was undeniable.

The judging of the Working Group can be viewed in it's entirety on YouTube here;


Milo also sired both the homebred Puppy Dog and Puppy Bitch class winners with Best Puppy (photo above) going to Carole and Gary's 11 month old Meadowpark Talk About Class who is out of Ch Meadowpark Just A Dream. I believe it was Gary's birthday on Friday too so lots of reasons for celebration at Meadowpark!

The Reserve Dog CC (photo above) went to 2nd place in Open Dog, Erikas Piskunovas' Genesis Rojaus Bernas (ATC Ltu). 2 years old, this homebred dog resides in Lithuania and is sired by Kronblommas Yam-Yam x Carrera Rojaus Bernas.

The Bitch CC was awarded to the Open Bitch class winner, Natalia Gracheva's Illisia Z Krainy Zeusa (ATC Pol) (photo above courtesy of Julie ann Wright) who was bred by Olga Wisniewska in Poland but resides in Russia. Rising 5 years old she is sired by Milbu Bold As Bear x Dewmist Dandridge Szczesliwy Slon.

The winner of Post Graduate Bitch (photo above) plus the Reserve Bitch CC was Mattia Fasso's Miami Del Sacro Fiume (ATC Ita). Homebred and rising 3 years old, she is a daughter of Ch Constantino Del Sacro Fiume x Larah Van't Pachthof.


Best Veteran (photo above) went to Marieke De Wolde's NL, VDH, SSV, Lux, Croa, INT CH, Bel, Aus, Swiss, DK Georgeous Mc-Gregor Vom Rummelsbach (ATC Deu). 7 1/2 years old and bred in Germany by Jurgen Mogge, he is sired by Famous Benn Van De Buut Vrijhoeve NJK x Multi Ch Marroussia Esprit. Congratulations.

Authority to Compete (ATC)
In order for dogs residing overseas to compete at dog shows in the UK (and at Crufts) the dog must be already registered with the Kennel Club or must have obtained an Authority to Compete (ATC) number from the Kennel Club for each dog which will be valid for the life of the dog. The ATC number must be used on all entry forms and will include a reference to the dog's country of origin.


I've included the ATC country of origin reference (for example ATC Bel = Belgium) to enable readers to identify which dogs placed in the classes reside overseas but the country of origin is NOT necessarily the country of residence of that exhibit.
