Second Show ever. Another Open show, another AVNSC class. This time the Oxfordshire And District Canine Society on 5 March 2017. More on offer for AV Terriers here, so we entered me into Postgraduate Dog and Open Dog. I was the only entrant in AVNSC PGD and won the class, only to come third (!) in Open.
When you win a class, that entitles you to be judged ‘best of’ AV alongside the winners of all the other classes within that group. If you win best AV, you then get judged alongside all the other breeds to become Best Terrier, and so on and so forth until Best in Show (like Crufts, yeah?).
What mummy didn’t realise is that if you win one class and then don’t come first in another, you’re a beaten dog, so you can’t move up the judging scale. We should have withdrawn after winning PGD.
But at least we won a class! And daddy even came to this one! He took pictures.
