Sorry to hear that your girls may not be there. If you do come please do not expect too much of Poppy, as we have been to ring craft this evening and things were not encouraging, she would not settle in the line, table was ok, and movement was very erratic. The second time was slightly better; I am possibly just being a pessimist.
It is a pity we have lost classes at so many shows. I think we that we should work together to support the best of local Opens shows, so they continue to put on classes, we would also be supporting aspiring judges. Our club (Chichester and District) did say that they could possibly put on classes if we could guaranty an entry. I had to say that with the present state of the breed we are struggling to produce viable numbers at Championship shows in some cases.
Sorry reading this back it all sound slightly negative, I will be more positive tomorrow (I have just realised it is already tomorrow!).
