20th August 2018
Even despite having CC’s on offer, the end of August always seems to struggle for entries at the big shows in our breed. Welsh Kennel Club drew 21 entries, exactly the same as last year and next weekend at Scottish Kennel Club we have 15 entries, one more than last year.
Welsh Kennel Club (Championship Show) – Sunday 19th August 2018
This show had CC’s on offer for our breed and legally docked GWP’s are permitted. Our breed judge for the day was Mrs Irene Glen who had an entry of 21 dogs, with 6 absent on the day.
BEST OF BREED and CC (dog) – Sh Ch Kimmax Kurious George – Owned by Mr P F & Mrs M McCullough
He now has 12 CC’s, 7 with best of breed – he is the current leader in the GWPC and Our Dogs, Top Dog competitions and is ranked 8th in the All Time GWP dogs list.
BEST OPPOSITE SEX and CC (bitch) – Bareve Bruevinka – Owned by Miss S Pinkerton
This was her 3rd CC, making her up. Congratulations to Sharon and I am sure it would have delighted the late Jenny Brewer to see her girl achieve her title.
RCC (dog) – Kimmax Knock Yourself Out – Owned by Mr & Mrs D Donnelly
A second RCC for this young man this year, the other being at Blackpool. He is a half brother to the Best of Breed.
RCC (bitch) – Tynsil Tennyson – Owned by Mrs A Cooke
The second RCC for this young lady this year (the other being only 2 weeks ago at Paignton.
BEST VETERAN – Kimmax Kayenta at Elagram – Owned by Mrs E, Mr G D & Miss A Turnbull
This is her 3rd Best Veteran win at Champ Shows this year. She was also shortlisted to the final 6 in the veteran group.
BEST PUPPY – Bareve Brynderi – Owned Mr J Evans & Miss S Morris
This young man is certainly staking up wins as a puppy (7 Best Puppy wins at Champ Shows so far) and he currently leads the GWPC and Our Dogs Top Puppy competitions.
Sadly no awards for the winners in the Groups, however some notable successes for GWP’s in the stakes.
Sh Ch Kimmax Kurious George – Owned by Mr P F & Mrs M McCullough – continued to subsidise his showing with another £50 prize money for winning the Good Citizens Stakes yet again.
Kimmax Knock Yourself Out – Owned by Mr & Mrs D Donnelly – Won the Higham Press AV Gundog/Utility Junior Stakes Dog Class, and Beechillawn Amarillo Starlight of Shirostar – Owned by Mr P M & Mrs D A Lovatt – Won the AV Gundog/Utility Eukanuba Pup of the Year Stakes Puppy Bitch Class.
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.
