Percy Wins A Red Rosette  

On Saturday 9 May, Percy entered his first ever competition....and what a day that was... The sun was shinning when we left home but once we had arrived at the Berwickshire Hunt SupportsDSC02130-1 Club - Greyhound, Lurcher and Terrier Show the sky was black and it didn't get any better. There were some fantastic dogs with Border, Lakeland and Jack Russell classes, elegant greyhounds and wonderful faced lurchers.Percy was the only Bedlington there however there were some other terriers so he was entered in the "other terrier group" which was right at the end of the competition.  Percy thought it was great meeting all these different well behaved dogs in one place. Eventually the heavens opened and for the next few hours we had squally showers and westerly winds racing across the borders. By the time Percy's class was called most of the other terriers had given up due to the weather and Percy was certainly in a class of his own....he came away with a lovely red rosette - I think they awarded it to him out of sheer courage to with stand the weather...!!!Even though we all got soaked and despite the cold DSC02131the whole family thoroughly enjoyed the day and met some lovely dogs and their friendly owners....

One very tired little Bedlington slept all the way home and when we got back the sun was shinning and not a cloud in the sky. Percy made a bee-line straight to the warmest part of the house and then followed the sun around the houses settling down for a well earned afternoon snooze on the carpet...!Bye for now.....Fiona and Percy x

Thank you Fiona a well deserved win, well done to you and Percy to stick out all the rain and fly the flag for the breed! I just love the top photo very artistic, it is amazing how light and shadows give a photo that wow factor!
