This year, the show was held at the Brackenfell Sports Club – a new venue for our club and one that will definitely be up for consideration in the future. The weather was unbelievably hot in the morning but luckily started to cool down slightly once the wind came up and showing was not too uncomfortable for the dogs or exhibitors.

We had a decent entry of 97 dogs with more than a third of the exhibitors making the journey from outside the Western Cape – a big thank you to all of you for making the effort and supporting the Cape Spring Show Fortnight! Best in Show went to the Scottish Terrier that has taken the Cape by storm, Ch Gladwen Black Magic, bred by the late Mrs Gwen Steyn and owned by Mr George Loock from Pretoria, with the Reserve being awarded to the Port Elizabeth Norfolk Terrier, Ch Shamanda Last of a Legend, owned and bred by Miss Amanda Young.

For the first time, we ran a Members’ Challenge after the Best in Show and had a very nice entry of twelve dogs including Staffordshire Bull Terriers, Airedale, Irish, Scottish and West Highland White Terriers. The challenge was won by a Staffie, with a Westie second and a Scottie third, each of which won a nice cash prize.
