2021 Championship Shows

At the beginning of 2021, we were fortunate to have a small window of freedom from March to June, before the COVID lockdowns forced more cancellations. This brief window allowed us to hold our two championship shows that had been cancelled in 2020.

The shows had the usual high standard of trophies and we received generous sponsorship from Black Hawk. There was the usual friendly atmosphere, with lots of visitors who came along to watch their first dog show.

The day commenced at per tradition with a parade of Golden Oldies to celebrate our older Griffons and to showcase their health and the love they receive from the owners. Many were show champions who enjoyed their time in the ring again. It was free entry and open to Griffons 10 years or older. All Griffons got a sash, a treat and an easter egg​
