NORTHERN BMD CLUB OPEN SHOW 18th October 2015
My sincere thanks to Ian Parkinson and the committee for their warm welcome and to the
exhibitors for their entries and sporting acceptance of my decisions, I was really grateful to
everyone for pausing briefly at lunchtime to remember our good friend and long time Bernese
enthusiast, Virginia Stenner who sadly passed away on 13th October.
Thank you to my stewards Emily Green & Gary Dydball and again to the committee for the
lovely glass gift.
Veteran Dog (3 entries, 2 absentees)
1st Miles’ Ch Jaybiem Utwo JW ShCM. Fine upstanding male who defies his years. Still in
firm condition with excellent reach and drive. A large impressive male with equally impressive
head, dark almond shaped eye, medium stop, flat skull and such a kind expression. In full coat
and well presented. Stood alone in his class but held his own in the dog challenge and Best in
Show where he scored points for his quality and movement at his age. Best Dog, Best in Show
and Best Veteran in Show
