York Canine Society Show

Yesterday was a very tiring day for me as it was one of those Show Days - bad news on the grooming front! First there was all the shampooing and brushing and stripping of my coat at home:

Then when we got there it was such a lovely day under the trees but - more grooming still!

The show was the 120th anniversary show for York Canine Society and there were lots of dogs and people there:

I had to wait until all the terriers were judged as the show people count us miniature schnauzers as 'Utility' dogs (?!) and the utility dogs were second in the ring. Anyway it gave me a chance to socialise a bit:

and to watch some of the terriers showing their stuff:

An Airedale pup who won a first prize..and then a Bedlington that looks a bit sheep-ish to me:

And I said hello to a little wire-haired fox terrier:

But I think the heat was getting too much - or maybe she was fed up with the showing because the next minute...

she was fast asleep! No chance of that for me though as I was soon in the ring and being examined by the judge:

and then I had to walk up and down and round and stand...and then I did get a rosette:

A nice red one for 1st with a little certificate which would have been OK but when we got home I had to pose with them:

Is that enough - or can I go and snooze now?

Anyway later this week I am going to let my little sister Caoimhe do a blog and tell you about her first day out. When she told me what she had seen I didn't believe a word of it but then she did bring pictures to prove it..coming in a few days time.
