Ash wins BOB and then BIS3

On Sunday May 16th, I take Ash and Neo to Mid Herts Gundog Open Show. We had a superb entry over 5 classes, our breed judge was Mrs S Pudney (Cascadia).

Neo, at his very first show, was in puppy. There were 8 puppies in his class, and he won 2nd place, I was delighted with him - Bless.

Ash was in Junior, really pleased when he won the class (his sister Eula was 3rd and Brother Toby was 4th - well done to them), he was also in Post Graduate which he won.

He went onto win 'Best Of Breed', and did a super job in the Group ring, by winning 'Best In Show 3' - BIS judge was Mrs Val Foss (Elswood)

Ash also had his Glaucoma eye test done and is clear


Harvey wins RCC at Birmingham

On Saturday 8th May 2010, I head off to Stafford for Birmingham Championship Show, taking Ash, Harvey and Flora. I travelled with Lesely who was showing Eula (sister to Ash) and Isla (mum to Ash & Eula)

First up was Ash, he won 2nd place in both his classes, which as great. Next was Harvey, he was in the Open dog class, and won a 2nd place (there is abit of a theme here!) Delighted when he was called back into the challenge and won the RCC (his 7th)

Eula won a 3rd place in a very strong Junior Bitch class

Both Flora and Isla were in Open Bitch, Flora was 3rd and Isla was 4th

So a pleasing day all round

Ash wins his first BOB

A lovely day at a very local show for me,on Monday 3rd May - Chelmsford & District Open Show.

Ash was a little super star. Winning 2 classes and then being awarded 'Best of Breed'. Pleased that he was shortlisted down to the last few in a big Gundog Group.

Delighted as he has only been to about 5 Open Shows in his showing career!

Great news from Jenny that owns Arthur (photo right), she has just had his 'Hip Score' back from the Kennel Club and he has a score 4:5 = 9

Ginny, his sister has also been hip scored and she is 4:3 = 7

The breed average mean score for ESS's is 14

This means Arthur is now fully health tested. Clear for Fucosidosis and PRA (cord 1), Glaucoma clear, annually eye tested and clear
