Leeds Championship Show - 25.07.10

Another Fab day for the show team. Orchid was placed 5th in the Junior Golden Retriever Bitch class, a very strong class of 19 entrants, and 4th in Undergraduate GR bitch. Brook was shown by his breeder for the first time in Post Graduate GR Dog and came out with 3rd and his Crufts Qualifier. :)) 
Thats all 3 qualified for Crufts 2011! what an achievement, I'm so proud of them all :)

Cleveland County Show - 24.07.10

Well the sun shone on us today. Orchid won the Golden Retriever Junior & Post Graduate class, and Brook took 2nd in the Open GR Classs. Orchid then went on to the Best of Breed, her 2nd this month!
She's certainly done well so far this month. Tomorrow we travel to Leeds for a Championship show with Orchid & Brook, so fingers crossed for both of them.

East of England Champ Show - 11.07.10

Well my long journey down to Peterborough was well worth it this weekend. My little star - Orchid was placed 3rd in Junior Golden Retriever Bitch with another Crufts qualifier. We then went on to the Junior Bitch stakes, any variety of Gundog or Utility Breed. To my amazement we were placed 2nd! What a little star she is and she wasn't phazed by the high temps and strong winds down there bufferting the marquees either. Next week we are at Leeds, taking Brook as well, so fingers crossed.

Hawick Open Show-Kelso 04.07.2010

Major smiles all around today as not only did Orchid win her Junior Golden Retriever class, but also took the Post Graduate class and then went on to get her first Best of Breed overall. Poor Brook beaten by his little sister, he took 2nd in the Open retriever class, but he says he takes all credit for teaching her properly!!! hum, nothing to do with the hours I've put in with both of them!
