The Percy Puppy Show was held on Saturday 27 July 2013. The judges were Mr Jacky Thomas, Master and Huntsman of the Glamorgan and very good to see Mr Giles Bennett back, former Whip of the Percy Hunt and now Kennel Huntsman of the Holderness. We were very lucky with the weather, it was a cracking day and there was a crowd of around one hundred and eighty. We had a large entry for us this year, seven couple of dogs and seven couple of bitches.

The judges liked our young entry and commented on what good movers they were. Mr David Willey won the Doghounds with Alpine, Albin came second walked by the Morris Family with Allbury third walked by Miss Becca Connor.

We then moved on to the bitches with Alspice coming first walked by Miss Emily Bennett, Posie was a very popular second walked by Miss Aimée Straughan and Mr Chris Newlands and Allegra walked by the Morris Family was third.

Alpine went on to be overall Champion giving Mr Davey Willey, the kennels blacksmith the Championship for the second year running.

Mrs Lynn Walker won the couples for the thirteenth time with Cluster and Clover, Emma Howie, our hunt secretary came second with Glendale and Gladstone and Lynn again third with Glitter and Gleeful.

One of our longest standing puppy walkers, Billy Crole won the best working dog and bitch with Arcade the dog and Claret the bitch.

We had a cracking tea afterwards and a good night was had by all. The night ended with Ali Grey standing on a picnic table outside the Plough Pub in Alnwick singing.
