Shetland Sheepdogs - week 6Updated : 02/02/2017

THE SSC of Northern Ireland has changed the date of its championship show this year to June 10. It was a decision taken by the members as they feel that by holding the show in the summer months works better as the ring can be outside, which is always much nicer as the dogs show better and there always seems to be a more rela...

Shetland Sheepdogs - week 51Updated : 14/12/2016

LKA was our last championship show of 2016 and one I do like to enter as it is always a really happy atmosphere with people giving out Christmas cards and generally enjoying the pre-Christmas feel of that time of year.
