Bath Show has the nickname of “MudBath” due to its often inclement weather conditions. Unsurprising therefore that the rain was pouring as exhibitors travelled to the Show but I understand conditions improved as the day went on, even if it wasn’t exactly a balmy summer’s day.
There are no CCs on offer for Norfolks at this show, but our own Ruth Gee was the judge on this occasion, and she had 25 Norfolks to go over which is not a bad turnout. There were some different names on the winner’s list this time as Ruth chose Montgomery’s LEXINOR PLAY THE ACE as her Best Dog and Best of Breed. He was bred by Sandy Brittain, and is by Ch Kinsridge Cash Back out of Lexinor Diamond Ruff. Jill Stevenson’s BRICKIN JUST A PICKLE (Ch Brickin Pot Of Pickle x Brickin Simplicity) had a change from Best Puppy and this time was Res Best Dog.
Best Bitch was Sandra Gardner’s PERRISBLU LIBERTY AT DANALAS Sh Ch (Villassa Morello x Jaeva Toffee Apple) was the top bitch on this occasion, and Res Best Bitch going to LEXINOR RISING STAR (Kinsridge Quo Vardis x Lexinor Belle Star) which topped off a good day for Sandy Brittain.
The Bath Show also runs a Best Special Beginner award, and this went to Fiona Macartney’s young bitch IVRIG FIRST BIT OF JOY (Ch Kinsridge Cash Back x Nordalset Little Bit Of Sun).
