Only one show in December for me and that was LKA, which is at the NEC in Birmingham.
Getting up at a silly time of the morning on Saturday 10th December 2011. I travel Banjo and Chaos, and meet up with Lesley and Eula.
Off we go to the NEC. It is a long walk from the car parks to the halls, but we make it in good time for judging which starts at 9.30am.
The day starts off well, with our judge Dr Graham Rogers awarding Banjo a first in the puppy class, and Chaos is second.
Next up is Arthur, (Meadowdale Alabama Slammer at Acregate ShCM) and Jenny, who is in Limit dog. Great to see them win thier class.
Lesley very kindly handles Chaos for me in the 'pup of the year' stakes, and is delighted when she is awarded a 4th place out of about 50 dogs!
I am otherwise engaged handling Banjo in the dog challenge.
OMG, so thrilled, when Jenny and Arthur are awarded the DCC, Banjo's dad (Sh Ch Trimere Thriller) wins the RDCC, and Banjo is awarded 'Best Puppy Dog'
Next up is Lesley with Eula, in a strong Limit bitch class, great to see her win a 4th place.
Banjo is then awarded 'Best Puppy in Breed'
A wonderful way to end a very successful year.
Thank you to all the judges concerned
