On 25th Sept The Irish Wolfhound Society held its Championship Show at Ryton. The judge was breed specialist Ms Mary McBryde. There was a large entry and it was wonderful to see so many Wolfhounds gathered. The Society are to be thanked for hosting what was a very friendly sociable show with plenty of time for chatting ringside.
We were particularly proud as we had quite a few of our owners who had entered some for the 1st time ever at a show. We are delighted that so many qualified for Crufts.
What was very exciting was we had two different mother/son combinations entered-Bonaforte's Back Chat in PG with her son Bonaforte’s Kelly's Hero in puppy-we have to make a mention to Carole his owner who was having her 1st time in the ring-they both did us proud.
We also had Bonaforte's Earl Grey in PG and his mum Ice Cream, and Harker and Nigella made a joint mum/son/daughter/brother/sister showing combo, Ice Cream being their mum too, who was showing for her 1st time in Veteran. What made this such a fabulous day for us was Creamy won Best Veteran-her owner Neil taking to the ring for the 1st time also-a truly momentous day for Bonaforte.
Of course there is always fun to be had with our owners so we can’t forget to mention Norris-who is becoming something of a Bonaforte mascot!
