    Zara got her first point towards her junior diploma today, she was 1st puppy bitch (she was the only one there though..) graded very promising.
    She got to see her brother Gilbert too and they had their usual silly moments :)

    Bigby was the only smooth at the Huntingdonshire Canine Society Open Show today - so we won our class, as well as best puppy and best in breed :)

    Went to Dunstable and District Canine Society today - not the open show part as I forgot to enter :p but I just came along and did the Pedigree Companion show. Bigby was an absolute tit the whole time, wouldn't stop barking etc and yet he won against 20 other dogs in AV Non Sporting. He was so naughty he jumped all over the judge :eek: but she said he is a cracking dog and went with her gut instinct.

    He then went on to win RBIS :D beaten by a show springer. She said he has a wonderful movement and once he matures more and fingers crossed calms down, I've got a good dog there :)

    So helped boost my confidence and looking to do some more companion shows and also a few open shows.

    Poppys first rosettes, she got 5th (VHC) in best crossbreed and 3rd in best condition!

    We went to her first show last week on the bank holiday, tried for the Scruffts class too but no joy. We have another show next month, actually 2 on the same day so we need to pick one!

    cherokee came 2nd (out of 2) in junior, and 1st (out of 1) in open at blackpool dog show on friday. just a shame cc's weren't on offer cos apparently she would've got her stud number. oh well, wasn't meant to be. 13553300_1129103307154071_1520212402_n.jpg 13517608_10154335563793410_1134678283930354834_o.jpg

    She's lovely :Kiss
    I admire your grooming skills :)

    We had a rubbish day in the breed, on Sunday but then went 3rd in the Puppy Bitch Stakes. So a swings and roundabouts day ;)

    It was swings and roundabouts for us too

    No luck on Saturday, the first show had the ring too small and instead of using the corners people were standing in front of eachother. The judge hardly looked at Poppy! Nevermind though as we managed to catch the 2nd half of another show on the way back. Still no luck but it was fun.

    But on Sunday, through wind and light rain we were redeemed! We waited through all the pedigree classes and then it was Poppys turn. No luck in our first class, 5th in dog the judge would most like to take home, and to top it off reserve best in show! :D

    Cash got a 1st in Limit Dog, BD, and BOS today at the East of England show. So proud! Mind you he was the only dog against a few bitches, so not as impressive as what you think ;) Still, any placement is not to be sniffed at as the judge doesn't have to award a dog as we know.

    I don't know? I don't know how it all works. I thought they had to get a reserve or Best Dog or Best Bitch.

    Also how would I get it, would it be automatically sent to me or would I have to apply for it?
