This weekend saw Leeds Championship Show take place at Harewood House. After a nice spell of weather, we were definatetly in for a surprise when what can only be described as a monsoon swept over the show grounds! Although the dogs coped very well indeed. Our judge was Lynne Salt. Both Lynne and her late husband Vic were no strangers to the Havanese ring over the years. A breed they took a great interest in, they could often be seen watching the breed judging and attending past Club Shows. Mrs Salt drew a very nice entry of 49 Havanese, with very few absentees. From her entry, she chose Mrs O, Mr B, and Ms O Carty’s Ir & Int Ch Xtreme Funny Xamaro Pedoro An Ch 16 as her Dog CC and Best of Breed winner. This being his 3rd CC, makes him the 12th Champion in the breed. Reserve Dog CC was awarded to Mrs J Harper-Dediu’s Ch Skystar’s Sonny. Bitch CC was awarded to Mrs S Smith’s Tiggafield Isn’t She Lovely and Reserve Bitch CC to Mrs O Carty-Parge and Mr D Parge’s Flordecuba Amarillo Star. Best Puppy in Breed was awarded to Mrs L Lemin’s Shenevas Lady Madonna and Best Veteran in Breed to Mrs J Harper-Dediu’s Ch Immeleon Hellz a Poppin. Best Special Beginner in Breed was awarded to Mr P Grocock’s Havalag Karaginski.
In Ireland, two shows took place on the same day, the Munster Agricultural All Breed Championship Show and the All Ireland Toy Group Show. At the Munster Agricultural Show judge Mr M Marabotto selected Mrs K Loveless’, Mrs J Connolly’s and Ms V Dowty’s Multi Ch Arbens Epic Swagg at Los Perritos as his Green Star and Best of Breed winner. Ms K Malone’s Rathcloon Jovial Sir John was awarded Reserve Green Star Dog. Green Star Bitch was awarded to Ms A Murray’s Rathcloon Steadfast Miss Lucy Steele. Reserve Green Star Bitch was awarded to Ms V Dowty’s and Mrs J Connolly’s Los Perritos Lisabeth Taylor of Clynymna.
The results are not available online for the Toy Show online, however I have been advised that judge Ms J Gould awarded Green Star Bitch and Best of Breed to Ms A Murray’s Rathcloon Steadfast Miss Lucy. Green Star Dog, I believe, was awarded to Ms K Malone’s Rathcloon Jovial Sir John and Reserve Green Star Dog, I believe was awarded to Ireland Toy Group Show. At the Munster Agricultural Show judge Mr M Marabotto selected Mrs K Loveless’, Mrs J Connolly’s and Ms V Dowty’s Multi Ch Arbens Epic Swagg at Los Perritos. I hope I have been advised correctly.
