Final's Report
By Jackie Kenny

What a great mix of breeds we saw at the ABC final. Dogs of all Grades from 1 to 7 competed on a lovely flowing jumping course set by Alan Bray. The course was not so simple and the handlers were tested - in fact, there were five eliminations !

The weather held apart from the odd drop of rain, but thunder was in the distance which caused concern for some dogs, including my own, who stood on the start line with his tail between his legs. One dog didnít even run the Final as it had been scared of thunder as a puppy and the owner didnít want to risk her running away. What a shame to have come all the way to the Final and not be able to run !

Nigel Staines with Morgans Assassin AWG  (Kelpie) was first to run and they set the goal by going clear in a great time of 28.143 seconds. This was followed by two eliminations and then Mike Walker with Fourpaws Caddy Shack who went clear in 28.788 seconds. The next clears managed times of 29 and 30 seconds.

It wasn't until running order 19 that we had a new leader. This was Jo Hyslop with Bonvivant with Extra Zoon (Belgium Shepherd)  who did it in a time of 27.586 seconds. Jo Hyslop had two more runs with Bonvivant Kronick and Bonvivant Objet D Art, who also went clear in very similar times of 27.337 and 27.828 seconds. No one else managed to beat these times and so Jo Hyslop pulled a hat trick taking 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

Jo and her Bonvivants received prize money -  a grand total of £220, plus all the other goodies that the Kronch sponsor supplied.

Paula Triggs / Wolf in Seeps Clothing, Heidi Johnson / The Munsters Apprentice, Maria Jenkinson / Blakanis Sweet Jasmine, Helen Wright / Accra Scarlet Armani, Paula Triggs / Off Like a shot, Gillian Barrett / Oaken Holt Conwy, Lesley Short / Jetril Rustler, Andrew Green / John o Gaunt Rocky Rover and Phil Spliman / Delark Indecent Proposal were all eliminated but still got to run in this great Final. A few did not due to ill health and our best wishes are with those dogs and handlers. xx
