At the Golden Retriever Club of Northumbria, all three of my dogs were shown, the two girls both in qualifier classes, and a certain lady was placed 3rd qualifier, but it wasn't Orchid....it was her Mum!!!!
Willow hasn't been shown at Champ level since 2004, and this year I have shown her 3 times in the Veteran bitches, this time was her lucky 3rd attempt, and bless her she showed her socks off! I think she is sick of being outdone by her daughter recently. I wasn't planning on showing her any more till later in the year as her coat is starting to drop now. Never thought I'd get another qualifier with Willow so late on in her life, she's meant to be retired now, what a way to do it!!
