Manchester Champ Show

Well what another super day

Headed off to Stafford Showground with my Banjo and Chaos, picking up Lesley and Eula along the way.

My boys were in Junior for the first time. Really pleased with them both, Banjo won the class and Chaos (handled by Jennie - thank you ) was third.

These were the last points needed to gain Banjo's JUNIOR WARRANT

Next up was Eula, unfortunately unplaced in a strong class, but she looked lovely.

Lesley and I took Banjo and Choas into the 'Petplan Junior Stakes' OMG - how many dogs, around 50 I think, and BANJO WON IT!!!!!

Boston Champ Show

I set off to Peterborough on Friday 6th January 2012 with Banjo & Chaos. This is a local show for me only 1.5 hours away.

We have no CC's at this show.

Chaos was first in the ring in Puppy Dog, which he won. Next was Banjo he was in Junior Dog, delighted when he won that as he is only a puppy still.

Back in for the Dog challenge. To my delight Banjo was awarded 'Best Dog' and Chaos was awarded 'Reserve Best Dog'.

This time back in to challenge the Best Bitch with Banjo, To my delight he won 'Best of Breed' and 'Best Puppy'

Next up was Chaos in the 'Pup of the year' stakes, a huge class of about 50 dogs, and he was 3rd, really pleased with that.

A long wait for the Group judging. But well worth it

Banjo WON the gundog puppy group, unfortunately we didn't get any further.

But so delighted with a super start to 2012!!!
