A great final show after a very quiet year with not much showing for Fionn...
After all the frantic washing, grooming, dinner-making, baby feeding and battling to bed, we almost didn't end up making the hour-long drive to the night-time show, but I'm glad we did. Fionni surprised and thrilled us by winning Best in Group and Best Australian-bred Exhibit in Group under judge Mr B Newman-Sparks.
We went back today for General Specials (in 30 degree heat - yay). The show was won by the stunning Bull Terrier, and RUBIS was a Whippet, who was also in the Australian-bred class, knocking us out. Fionni looked lovely standing out there in the line-up, and we had a nice day even though we didn't win anything in show, or "convert the try," as Glenn calls it!
Here are some photos from the Friday night group judging and today's General Specials.
