Congratulations to Mr & Mrs Phillips with Rathsrigg April Rose who won best Puppy of the Year 2007 and Mr G & Mrs S Mayes Ch Rathsrigg One Misty Morning for winning Bedlington Terrier Of the Year 2007.

I would like to say a big thank you to the Midland Bedlington Terrier Club for organising such a great day. All the entrants received a catalogue and and a lovely embroidered towel to mark the occasion. The puppies were judged in the morning, we then had a break for a 3 course lunch before the final judging of the adult dogs in the afternoon. The event was well supported by spectators and friends creating a great party atmosphere.

popped in for an hour after lunch and it seemed a nice relaxed atmosphere.

well done all winners.
but i am a true believer that if you own a dog and you want to show it, then show it yourself.

A big thank you to all who came along and accepted our decisions in such a sporting manner. Some of those decisions were very difficult, especially using the points system available to us, but it was great fun in a friendly atmosphere. Special thanks to the hard working committe without whom none of these events would ever happen.

A long for us 3 hours each way, and wee stops,so we were thirsty and hungry when we arrived, the hot soup went down well,we did not win anything,but thats life, it's a pity that in a show like this there is not a little prize for reserve in both the puppy and adult as there were where 30 dogs and just 2 prizes, Iknow that it is called top dog,but it would be nice for the people who were so close to winning that is just my thoughts on it.

Congratulations to the Rathsrigg team. I'm sure I saw a tear in Susan's eye when the winner was announced!
I'd like some different pet names for Name the Dog. Please post your dog's pet names so that I can make another list for the Bedlington Toy I'll be making for the Championship Show.
