Thanks for the 'Mr '  title - it makes me sound rather grand!   

We are very happy to grant FIVE NATIONS TERRIER, LURCHER and WHIPPET QUALIFIERS for our 2018 40th RUBY Anniversary Events  and we will donate a prize for each champion. This is a great little show - hopefully the weather will be kind.

While this is my time of the year for dog work & shooting I hope to get to this show this year. When I have been before there has always been a great atmosphere with lots of prizes.
