"At Working & Pastoral Breeds Association of Scotland Open Show on 3rd May,
Bernemcourt Liv’n On A Prayer (Deaglan) won Bernese Junior, Best Of Breed
and then went on to win Best In Show under judge Sharon Jones, (Icynights).
"We are over the moon with this result, especially as the show was not judged
on the Group System, so he had to compete against all Working & Pastoral Best
of Breed winners to be awarded Best In Show.
"Deaglan is only 14 months old and this was his first show as an adult."
