Blackpool Championship Show

Saturday 22nd June 2013. On a very cold, wet and windy Summers day!!
The rings were a bog of mud, not ideal, but turn out to be a fab day

A very early start, up at 2.30am to travel to Blackpool show.

Our judge today was breed specialist Mr George Clarke

I took with me Casper, Banjo and Chaos

We had a lovely placings - Casper 2nd in Puppy Dog, Banjo 2nd in Limit Dog, and Chaos was 3rd in Open Dog

BUT the star of the day was Jenny and Arhtur (Meadowdale Alabama Slammer of Acregate ShCM). He won the Open dog class, and to our delight went onto win the CC

This makes Arthur a SHOW CHAMPION

Yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, well done Jenny and Arthur


OSS International Show - Holland


And now for something different!
After getting home from a very successful Southern Counties show, I rush off to Kent to meet up with friend Mark Andrews who shows Pointers.

We are heading off to Holland, and a show in OSS!!!

Catching the Eurostar to France, driving through Belgium and arriving in Holland.

I only took with me Banjo, and Mark had his pointer Vespa.

Thrilled when Banjo was awarded the CAC, CACIB, and BOB.
