11th September 2018
A relatively quiet week for GWP’s with only one major event this week.
Richmond (Championship Show) – Sunday 9th September 2018
This show does have CC’s on offer for our breed and legally docked GWP’s are permitted. Our judge on the day was a non breed specialist, Mrs E A Orzel. She had an entry of 18 dogs, with none absent on the day, a big improvement on the 8 dogs present last year, which perhaps reflected that she was giving CC’s in our breed for the first time.
BEST OF BREED and Dog CC – Sh Ch / Dutch Ch Bareve Bontebokskraal W15 W17 – Owned by Miss S Pinkerton
This was his first CC in 2018, however, this 5 year old dog has 23 CC’s, 20 with best of breed. He is currently ranked 5th in the All Time GWP dogs list.
BEST OPPOSITE SEX and Bitch CC – Sh Ch Bareve Bruevinka – Owned by Miss S Pinkerton
This 3 year old bitch now has 5 CC’s, none with best of breed. She is ranked 33= in the All Time GWP bitch List.
Reserve Dog CC – Sh Ch Kimmax Kurious George – Owned by Mr P F & Mrs M McCullough
This 2 year old dog has 13 CC’s, 8 with best of breed – he is the current leader in the GWPC and Our Dogs, Top Dog competitions. He is ranked 8th in the All Time GWP dogs list.
Reserve Bitch CC – Sh Ch Kimmax Koz I Kan – Owned by Mr P F & Mrs M McCullough
This 15 month old bitch has 3 CC’s, 2 with best of breed, including the 2018 GWP Club Championship Show. She currently leads the GWPC Top Bitches competition.
Best Puppy – Bareve Brynderi – Owned Mr J Evans & Miss S Morris
This 10 month old dog leads the GWPC and Our Dogs Top Puppy competitions with 9 Champ Show best puppy wins to date (8 where CC’s are on offer).
Best Veteran – Kimmax Kayenta At Elagram – Owned by Mrs E, Mr G D & Miss A Turnbull
This 7 year old bitch has 1 CC. This bitch now leads the GWP Veterans, having clocked up 5 Veteran wins at Champ shows this year.
No awards for the Puppy or Veteran winners in the Groups, though Kimmax Kayenta At Elagram was 4th in the Bannerdown Veteran Stakes. However, top honours went to Sh Ch / Dutch Ch Bareve Bontebokskraal W15 W17 who, handled by Sharon Pinkerton, not only won the Gundog group, under judge Rui Oliveira, but also took RBIS under judge. Geoff Corish – this was the first Group win for a GWP this year.
You would not believe the time it takes to keep on top of the breed stats, so please do let me know if you think if I have misquoted your dog’s stats, misspelled or omitted anything.
