The Roman Wall Show – 15 June 2013

The Percy showed at their first show of the year 2013 on Saturday 15 June at The Roman Wall Show at Twice Brewed on Hadrians Wall. The judge was Mr Martin Letts MFH. This year we will be showing all new hounds so it was going to be an interesting day.

The first class was a two couple group class in which we showed four bitches which I think are quite nice. They were Litmus walked by Mrs Annette Grey, Lilac walked by Mrs Lynn Walker, Lightning walked by Mrs and Mrs Stephen McCarthy and Claret walked by Mr Billy Crole. We had a good start by winning the class.

The next class was the entered dog in which we showed a nice young dog of ours called Alnwick, walked by Mrs Betty Robson.  Alnwick went on to win the class.

We then showed Lilac in the entered bitch class, she showed well and came second.

In the unentered bitch class we showed Posie, walked by Miss Aimee Straughan and Mr Chris Newlands, she showed well and came a good second in the class. This was a very pleasing result as this is a bitch we like a lot in the kennels.  This is also the first pup Aimee and Chris have walked.

The only class we did not get a ticket in was the unentered dog but the young dogs did show well which was pleasing. We showed three young dogs, Allbury walked by Miss Becca Conner, Albin walked by the Morris Family and Glendale walked by the Howie Family.

We then took Alnwick into the Championship and were rewarded with Reserve Champion, this a good end to the day.
