We went to BAGSD’s Champ. Show as we Googled the venue and found it was only a couple of hours away. It was a good venue with super weather just a shame there was no disabled parking, as the van was quite a way away and Peter had to return to it every so often to take the pressure off his legs and feet when it became too painful. In the end we left early. Thanks to Pam Quarton for a bag full of old catalogues, the only results Peter had missing for the 1990 two-day show was the Veteran class and the class was marked up in one of Pam’s catalogues.

I judged at Eastbourne on 20th September, it was 3 classes, an entry of 15 with 3 absentees. BOB Tania Deane’s Kaiobii Michiko, BPIB Carol Eastwood & Alison Reilly’s Antilli Hifive. While waiting to go in the ring a lady whose breed was being judged before GSDs struck up a conversation with me, she told me she was seventy years of age. She talked to me quite happily and friendly, mainly about her dog and her breed. Then she asked what breed I had, when I said ‘German Shepherd’, it was as if I had suddenly grown two horns and a tail. Her tone changed. I had kept my opinion of her breed to myself, but why do people think that it is fair game to insult our breed, and have a set belief that the GSD they knew or saw when they were children, with an almost level line from wither to tailset, was the correct GSD. Everyone seems to think they can put in their two-penneth with regards to how the GSD should look, without having any idea what is laid down in the standard for the breed.
Many thanks to Kerry Jones and Tracy Wall who met us at the show and gave us some GSD magazines; including Alsatian Review mags, old GSDL mags, and GSD weeklies, these belonged to the late Margaret Barron (Norwulf).
