Alwinton Border Shepherds Show 2009

After two busy evenings baking, we arrived at the show this morning laden down with exhibits. This is the last of the shows this year held in the Cheviot foothill village of Alwinton. The show draws people from the borders of Scotland and north east England and is always well attended. There was even a visit of the North East Air Ambulance to whom the proceeds of the Dog show were being donated along with other collections throughout the show.

We had a very successful show, especially with my needlework. In the Dog Show, Brook won the 'dogs' class out of around 40 entries, Willow was unplaced in the 'bitches' class, and Orchid was 3rd in the Puppy class out of around 30 entries. Brook then went on to get the Best Dog overall award and a very large box of Bonio's!
Back home and its feet up for us all, though Brook seems to think he can have all the settee tonight!!

    A guess the 'winner' wants the best seat in the house!!
