Yesterday At Corbridge

Yesterday was the first of the North East County Shows, Corbridge. The day turned out well and luckily the weather stayed dry. A total of 9 Bedlingtons were entered for the show and all turned up. However at one point there were a total of 23 various shapes and sizes of Bedlingtons around the ring at some point.
A few old faces turned up, well I had better say old friends than old faces, Sarah & Tony, Ed & Ellen Noades, Jeanette and a few more who's names I'm missing all with their packs of dogs. However not a harsh bark was uttered by any dog.

We even had a new Liver pup on the block. Morris's, Polly Pocket, (Elle) was being shown in her first show and became Best Bedlington Pup and Group 3. Here she is along with McNally's Aireview Cristal Blue who is now out of the puppy stage.

We had a great day. Rosie and I watched the show, while the boys manned the dry stone wallers' marquee.
