Calshair Losgaintir (Cicci) ably shown by Steve Poole and owned by Chris and Alasdair Walker received lst from Mr T Hutchings at the Royal Cornwall Show. The Head Steward of the Show, Mr Bevan Osorne, after the judging, explained to the crowd how rare this breed was – this was the second year that the Bergamasco has been selected for comment at this show.

Plans are now well in hand for the Family Day on the 19th July at Bickenhill, Solihull, with a programme of grooming, agility, handling demonstrations and show ring training. There will be exhibitions in respect of the Bergamasco in the Community, Good Citizen Awards diet and health, together with the Children photo competition.

We are also welcoming a number of members of the Polish Lowland Sheepdog Club of Wales and West of England who will participate in the day. Fans of Bergamascos are welcome but must book in advance.
