Leeholme Working Mens Club Lurcher & Terrier Show

Hello Bloggers, Saturday was Leeholme Working Mens Club Lurcher & Terrier Show, not exactly Crufts but a pleasant outing with just as much rivalry on show.  The beer was flowing,  the food from the club bar, well, pie & peas, hot dogs and burgers, chips and the ice cream van playing a tune what more can one say. There were 8 Bedlingtons there, not all were entered for show.  Bloggers in attendance, The Makems, Darren from Toronto, that's the one in Co. Durham and new to the blog Karen with Bramble.  Darren won the bitch class with Isla, Dusty only got third this time and Karen was also third in the dog class.

As can be seen in the pictures  quite a lot of greyhounds and lurchers with big classes and the working Lakeland Terriers were just gorgeous.

  Their owner told us they live outside all year round and sleep in a beer barrel.  And where are our Bedlingtons sleeping, ??, outside no chance, but all tucked up in cosy beds with the heating going full blast in the winter.  Dress code for these shows is very laid back, Eileen just loved the guy in his blue bib & brace (dungarees).

How would that do for a KC show, perhaps Blogger Mr Walshaw could comment. Have fun folks at your shows, The Makems 

Hi Derek and Eileen, what fun I wish we had more working shows down souf!! I just love the Lakelands the dog in the middle looks amazing, so fit and muscled! I fancy wearing a bright red pair of dungarees in the ring forgetting the dog, just the thing to catch the judge’s eye
