Thetford & District Open Show 2019 @ Attleborough, 11 August

Thetford is small Open Show but very homely, in a lovely setting and a lot of fun. There were only 3 classes for the poddies with dogs and bitches in together but it was a good get-together and a nice picnic lunch for us all. A big 'thank you' to the judge, Viv Rainsbury, who was very thorough and extremely good with the dogs:


BEST OF BREED: Arranbourne Galenia at Jaflings (pictured, left)
