I'm absolutely thrilled that Valium is now a Champion following his Best in Show at Cardiff show yesterday. It was close at the top with three hamsters on the same mark, but Val managed to charm the judge into awarding him the top spot. What a lovely first birthday present for him.
The show was rather small but there was a lovely atmosphere. I enjoyed having plenty of time to chat with the other exhibitors and browse the stalls (hall shows usually have hamster accessories on sale). I was given the honour of judging the pet class. I was impressed with the standard of the hamsters entered compared to other pet classes I have judged. The biggest fault was too small a wheel, but both animals with this were bought larger wheels at the show. Some lovely animals in fabulous condition and a difficult task to judge.
