Whittingham Show - 21.08.10

Well the sun shone today for a change, and my baking was again successful. My Quiche not only won its class but took the Trophy for Best Exhibit in the Industrial Section, and I also won the Most points in this section.
In the Companion dog show, Brook was 2nd in the Open Class and Willow was 2nd in the Veterans. She also enjoyed a run around the Agility Display Course that was set up and the applause she got for it. Not bad for 2 weeks short of being 8 years old.

National Gundog Champ Show-Malvern-7/8/2010

What a fab day we had at this show. After a 2am alarm call to travel down to the show, Orchid was in the ribbons with a 2nd in the Golden Retriever Junior Bitch class and then went on to Win the Undergraduate GR Bitch to our amazement. Its such a special feeling when the little pup that you have bred and nursed through those early days goes on to win a class at a Championship show. We are so proud of her.
Brook not to be outdone went on to get a 2nd in the GR Good Citizen Dog class (they have to have their Bronze or higher Obedience award to enter this class) so we were thrilled with him too.
A long journey back home but it seemed to fly when I was on cloud 9!
