1. Smith’s Wee Angus of Adinaken ShCM (Papillon) This 7 year old dog was in excellent condition and was not showing his age.

Hargrave’s Cavallino Jaeger (CKCS) 3. Hargrave’s Sandbrae Rockabye (CKCS)
1. Nixon’s Ch Pakovs I’m Viva (Pomeranian) I loved this 11 year old orange bitch, so short and compact, with super tailset and shown in full coat. Lovely head with small ears, dark sparkling eyes, fine muzzle and foxy expression, she moved briskly and accurately. Best Veteran in Show.   2. Moyes & Hunter’s Jokima Jalena (Chinese Crested) 3. Gray’s Ingerdorm Tar Baby (S/C Chihuahua)
