Sunday 16th October 2011, another super day. This time I head off to the South Western ESS Club Open Show. I have Banjo & Chaos, and Lesley has Isla & Eula. Also taking Celia's 2 dogs, Eddie & Beth, so a bit of a van full!
Banjo was first up and won Minor Puppy Dog, then Chaos won Puppy Dog. I handled Eddie to win his 2 classes. Then in for the challenge, and OMG Banjo was awarded 'Best Dog'
A lovely lunch, swiftly followed by the bitches.
I handled Beth to win her 2 classes, Lesley was then up with Isla she won a 2nd place, and Eula won her class, Delighted to see Lesley also win 2 of the stakes classes, and some money!
Really pleased in the Bitch challenge when Beth won Reserve Best Bitch.
The best was still to come. Banjo won BEST IN SHOW & BEST PUPPY IN SHOW
A HUGE thank you to our judge, breed specialist
