Gundog Breeds of Scotland

2013 11 09 - GBOS rcc

Well what a weekend. Set off on Friday 8th November on the long journey to Edinburgh.

Taking with me, Banjo, Chaos, Casper and Kaitlyn

Casper was first up in Junior Dog, pleased when he won the class, next was his dad Chaos, he was in Limit, and was placed 2nd (behind the CC winner), and Banjo was 2nd in Open,

The star of the day was Casper who was awarded the RCC, a lovely day for our young Black Tri boy.

Kaitlyn also had a lovely day winning the Minor Puppy Bitch class.

Midland English Springer Spaniel Championship Show

Sunday 3rd November 2013, I head up to Doncaster with Lesly McCourt and her 2 girls to show at the Midland ESS Championship Show. Under Breed Specialist Mr Ray Smith (Melverly)

Chaos was first up, and so pleased when he won a lovely Limit Dog Class, straight after was Banjo in the Open Class, again delighted when he won the class. Lesley very kindly handled Banjo for me in the Dog Challenge, whilst I had Chaos. OMG so thrilled when Chaos was awarded the CC, and Banjo the RCC.

Kaitlyn won a couple of respectable 2nd's and Lesley's girls both went well and were placed.

The Super Star was Chaos, who went onto win 'BEST IN SHOW' how wonderful is that. Above a couple of poor quality photos of the day!
