The breed has recently been doing well at Open shows in all corners of the country.
At the Northern Dog Club show Angela Chandler showed Chanangel Sticky Wicket to BOB & Gp4 under Mr A Scott (Largymore).
At Cardiff Open show Steve Pick selected for BOB Mr & Mrs T Williams’ Isfryn Spot the Difference Trebettyn, RBOB to Halyley Johnson’s Coedybrain Mali ay Naldris and Anne Worth’s Sarabande Lord of the Dance for BP
Bill Bunce was the group & BIS judge and awarded Spot the Difference Gp3, Lord of the Dance Puppy Gp1 and later RBPIS.
Litter sister S. Dance to the Rhythm was a very respectable 2nd in a good AV puppy class also under Bill Bunce.
Tina Smith had a busy weekend with 2 shows: at Lichfield Canine Society Open show Tony Fenton awarded BOB to Colin Troth’s Cochnaid’s Cartier Topaz and BPIB & RBOB to Tina’s Isfryn Peeping Tom. Eddy Harrison later gave him Puppy Gp1.
The following day at Stoke On Trent & District Gundog Club Tina won BOB with Isfryn Hocus Pocus JW and BPIB & RBOB with Isfryn Peeping Tom under Mr J Irwin.
In the South at Ashford, Faversham & DCS although WSS weren’t scheduled Sharon Barkley’s Cherryheath’s Miss Chief JW was awarded Best AV Gundog Veteran under Dave Wilmshurst.
The day unfortunately finished badly as due to a very short section of road works chaos out on the local roads meant that some people sat in their cars in a queue for 2 hours plus waiting to even get out of the car park let alone onto the roads. This makes the queues that sometimes occur to get into & out of Championship show venues a mere distraction!
