Darlington Champ Show



Sunday 15th September 2019, I head of to Darlington Championship Show held at Ripon Racecourse with Storm and Rita

Meeting up with Storms sister - Meadow owned by Lavinia

Storm won his last Limit dog class, and Rita was 2nd in Puppy Bitch, very respectable results

But the STAR of the day was Meadow, She was in the limit bitch class, which she won, and then in the challenge goes onto win the BCC

How fab is that, this is her 2nd CC, so one more to go to become a Champion, fingers crossed"

A huge thank you to our judge Mrs Trudy Topliss (Beresford) a breed specialist for thinking so highly of her

Birmingham Champ Show

Sunday 1st September and off to Stoneleigh we go
Taking Storm and Rita to show under well known gundog judge Mr Frank Kane

Storm won the limit dog class, and delighted me when he went onto be awarded the Dog CC

It was not Ritas day today, always another show another judge!

But Storm was not finished there, he then had to challenge the bitch CC winner, and again he won Best of Breed

The long wait then for the gundog group, being judged by Mr Ray Strudwick.


Over the moon to be shortlisted to the last few in a huge gundog group - the boy did good!
