On a beautiful Friday morning last week some of the West Kootenay Kennel Club’s finest canines and humans were showing their stuff to an interested group of residents at the Castle View seniors’ residential facility.

The expansive back yard with the lush lawn was an ideal venue for the four ladies and their pooches to show their stuff.

All had recently placed well at a dog show in Vernon. Unable to be present for the occasion were Kornelia Geldrich and her rough collie Nina who earned two legs toward her Rally Obedience Advanced title.

Shirley Hubel’s Shetland Sheepdog Tux earned high in class all three days in the obedience category.

Glenda Minor’s Newfoundland, Loretta won Best Veteran in the Vernon & District Aged to Perfection Tournament.

Marlene Fletcher’s Labrador, Major, won group first, Reserve Best of Show, and took Best of Opposite Sex the following two days.

Donna Konkin’ Pappillon, D’hani won a group third, Select dog, and Best of Breed on the three days.
