2014 07 25 - leeds

Friday 25th July 2014, I head off to the lovely Harewood House to show at the Leeds Championship Show. Taking with me, Chaos, Casper and Kaitlyn. I travelled with Lesley McCourt and her 2 girls Eula and Holly

It was a stifling hot day, too hot to show really.

First to be shown was Casper, and delighted when he won the class.

Chaos was in Open Dog. Thrilled to win the class.

Thank you to Lesley for handling Casper in the challenge for me. Really pleased to be awarded the DCC with Chaos.

Kaitlyn was next up, winning a very respectable 2nd in Junior and 3r in Graduate

Lesley also had a super day with her girls, with Holly winning a lovely Limit class and Eula winning a 4th in Open bitch

A long and hot drive hot, but we were very happy!

Border Union Championship Show


Saturday 14th June 2014, I head off to Kelso, in the Scottish Borders, to go to Border Union Championship Show

Taking with me Chaos and Casper. On the Sarurday night I stayed at the Ednam Hotel, just across the river from the showground, a beautiful old hotel with lovely grounds. It was rather wet, so the poor dogs had to wear their coats to stay clean and dry before the show.

The day of the show was a rather miserable day weather wize, the ground was boggy, and I had to show in wellies!!

A lovely day. Casper was first up in the Post Graduate class, the biggest dog class of the dogs, delighted that he won, with some super dogs in the class.

Chaos was in the Open class, really pleased again to win.

Thank you to Barbara for handling Casper in the challenge, whilst I handled Chaos. Really pleased that Chaos was awarded the RDCC, under breed specialist Mrs Wendy Walker (Dexbenella)
