At Bournemouth we had a change of judge with Julie Exall withdrawing for health reasons and Colin Woodward taking on the breed.
In dogs he selected for his DCC Jane Graham’s Sh Ch Taimere’s Twister Round Nyliram Jw Sh.Cm with the RDCC
going to Vicky Mcilwaine & Jan Reynolds Glenbrows Van Gogh For Benoveor JW.
BPD was Sharon Barkley’s Chanangel Mr Whodat At Cherryheath, BVD Kim Stone’s Stedigan Pipers Piping For Merrem Sh.Cm & BSB Emma Green’s Eurion Jasper.
IMandy Thomas & Helen Upton’s in bitches Sh Ch Bowdonia Seraphina JW Sh.Cm took the BCC with Jane Graham having a good day as the RBCC went to her Ferndel Cover Story About Nyliram Jw. BPB was Julie Revill & Di Monday’s Julita Ryveeta and BVB Jane & Craig Sutherland’s Ch Julita Rezanella Of Jacranella.
His final winners were BOB Twister, BP Ryveeta, BV Pipers Piping.
Tom & Jane’s day got even better when Richard Morris awarded the Gundog Group to Twister.
The following week Moray Armstrong was the judge at what was forecast to be a very wet and windy WKC in Builth Wells but which in the event wasn’t wet on Gundog day. It had been entertaining however on one of the earlier days hearing over the tannoy a suggestion that someone return to their car to close the windows as the rain was getting in. It certainly made a change from removing dogs from hot cars.
His DCC went to Catriona’ Clarke’s Sh Ch Ferndel High Fidelity With Tigerrock Shcex and RDCC to John & Heather Riley’s Ferndel Peanut Butter At Ravensworth JW, BPD was Sharon Barkley’s Chanangel Mr Whodat At Cherryheath and BVD Sharon’s Sh Ch Cherryheath’s Mr Mischief Jw Sh.Cm.

the BCC with the RBCC going to Sharon Jones’ Julita Rumours At Trosley. BPB was
Catriona Clarke & Mrs Sherlock ‘s Crimicar She’s Electrick With Tigerrock

He finally selected Symphony as BOB, She’s Electrick BP and Mr Mischief BV.
Steve Hall judged several stakes classes and awarded Carol Madeley’s Barhi Flaming Star At Maytag a 3rd in the Veteran Stakes.
Ann Moss, at SKC, awarded a crowning 3rd DCC & BOB to John & Heather Riley’s Ferndel Peanut Butter At Ravensworth JW with Jane Graham’s Sh Ch Taimere’s Twister Round Nyliram Jw Sh.Cm taking the RDCC.
The Riley’s had a traumatic journey to the show where someone on a mobile phone ran into the back of their car causing some damage. Luckily ‘the Chrisses’ were able to rush to their rescue and take Heather & Noah to the show while poor John had to stay with the car and miss the show and the crowning of Noah.
It was a BCC for the Ritchie family’s recently crowned Sarabande Eternity At Slapestones (Ai) Jw with Catriona Clarke & Mrs Sherlock ‘s Crimicar She’s Electrick With Tigerrock being awarded RBCC & BP and later Puppy Group4 under Mrs T L Jackson.
BV was Kay & Ian Douglas’ Sh Ch Ferndel Justin Time Shcm and BSB Mr W A & Ms A B Mole & Knox’s Zaza Florence Our Loyal Welsh At Edincraw (Imp Ndl)
Meanwhile in the south it was a seriously hot 30 degrees plus Horley & DSS Open Show where probably every other dog was walking about wearing cool coats or lying on cool mats.
Claire Sharp judged the breed awarding BOB to Sharon Barkley’s Chanangel Mr Whodat At Cherryheath (Cai) & RBOB to Allan & Sue Tubb’s Slapestones Tidal Wave For Alsutu.
Cai was later Group 3 also under Claire.
