WELKS Champ Show

Sunday 29th April 2012, it was a very wet and cold day as i head off to Malvern with Chaos and Banjo. We were second in the ring, so did not get started till nearly 2pm!

Chaos was first up in the Junior class, delighted that he won the class

Banjo was in a large Post Graduate class of 16, really pleased when he won that as there were some lovely dogs to compete against.

The day just got even better, when Banjo won the DCC - OMG!!!

Thrilled with Banjo winning his first CC at 15 months old.

A huge thank you to our judge, breed specialist Caroline Robinson
