Dear Supporters,  


BTW Jubilee Virtual Show results announced

The results are in for our BTW Jubilee Virtual Show, which allowed so many of you to join our Jubilee celebrations as we kicked off the party early.  Thank you to all of you who submitted so many brilliant photos, you definitely didn't make the job easy for our judges!

Below we give your our results, with all the finalists, class winners and Best in Show, so read on to check out the party.

The classes

Our party opened with a Red Carpet like no other . . . literally! 🤣  There was brilliant creativity as your entries for who your Border Terriers most closely resemble in either looks or mannerisms.  This gave us an amazing line up for the Red Carpet Doggleganger, from Game of Thrones to movie stars, TV stars to pop stars, and all round general superstars.  

You all then partied, well, like animals, also giving us some of the best morning after pictures!  Your Jubilee Kings and Queens made their very regal appearance, along with showing your very faithful Patriotic colours, in true Border Terrier spirit.

We've seen and loved them all!  😍

As we said earlier, it made the judges task a really difficult one, but without further ado, here are the results (please note the Shortlist videos are in no particular order).

Red Carpet Doggleganger

1st - Ted / Clint from Paws / Jaws
Did you say 'We're gonna need a bigger bone'?

2nd - Trudy / Judi Dench
In common with Dame Judi, Trudy is a lady of a certain age who is great fun but can also wither you with one look.

3rd - Hettie / Scarlett Johansson

Special - Bruff / Hacker T Dog
At least 4 months each year, before he is stripped, Bruff looks cery much like Hacker T.Dog - fortunately he’s much nicer!

Special - Beetle / Helen Mirren
Pink to make the boys wink!

Also shortlisted (in no particular order):
Minnie & David Bowie - My special face like Ziggy Stardust. ⚡️
Matilda & Tom Hanks - Matilda’s doppleganger is Tom Hanks in the Green Mile.

Party Animals

1st - Trudy, Bruff & Friends
Border terrier beach party - a fun meeting on Crantock beach while all down in Cornwall on holiday & celebrating one Hoodad’s 80th. [Editor's note: what is a group of Border Terriers called . . . maybe a 'chaos of BTs'? 🤣]

2nd - Archie
Archie is nearly 11, but this photo is from his 10th birthday last November when the local pub threw a party for him.

3rd - Wicket
Wicket is a 6 1/2 year old dear quiet boy and a reliable, loyal friend.  HOWEVER get him to a #BTPosse tweetup or make him centre of attention and he fairly comes alive.  Wicket becomes a social butterfly, zooming around meeting people and his palz alike.  He loves to pose and this photo sums up Wicket the Pawty Animal.

So we have the winners for each of our classes as contenders for Best in Show:

Party Animals - Trudy, Bruff & Friends
Jubilee King - Teddy
Jubilee Queen - Holly
Patriotic Pup - Chaser

These were then sent to our Guest Judges, Bob & his brilliant staff, Sharon & Gareth, at Be More Bob, who tried to deliberated long and hard but realised it's like asking choosing between your favourite children! Saying, "Ooh, we had to pick quick and not really think about it, else we'll cry!  We choose Teddy! 💙"

So congratulations Teddy - proving to us all that at 14 years old, senior BTs still have 'it' in spades! 😍   You also win our Best in Show voucher for £20 of amazing loot from their store Be More Bob, kindly donated by Bob & his amazing staff.

A note of thanks
