Crufts 2012

Friday 9th March 2012,I headed off to the NEC in Birmingham for Crufts 2012.

Travelling with Lesley and her bitch Eula who is a daughter to our Harvey. I took Banjo and Chaos.

Having to leave at a silly time of the morning to get to the NEC on a friday morning with judging starting at 9am.

Banjo and Chaos were up in the second class of the day. Banjo delighted me by winning the class to take 'Best Puppy Dog', Chaos was in the same class and handled by Jennie, (thanks Jen) He as placed 5th in the class. Also pleased to see Chaos's brother 'Rye winning a 4th place in the class - well done to Sue and Rye.

I was peased to handle Woodspa Willow in the 'Post Graduate Bitch' Class - OMG there were 23 in the class!!!! And what a result, so pleased that I was awarded a 5th place, to the delight of 'Willow's owners.

Lesley and Eula were up next in the Limit Bitch Class, another big one! Eula showed her socks off to be awarded a 4th place.

Banjo then has to challenge the puppy bitch winner, to my delight Banjo is awarded - Best Puppy In Breed

A lovely day for springers in general with our DCC and BOB taking Gundog Group 3 - well done Dave & Jackie with Seamus lovely to see him do so well.
