Hello….Not much in the way of news lately, and results of the Champ shows have been posted on various platforms, but just to summarise, there have been some interesting choices from the judges for the CCs at the last three shows: At WELKS (and I won’t mention the weather!) Breed Specialist Chris Rees awarded the DCC to Reeve’s Annatefkah Tum (his 2nd) and the BCC to his litter sister, Ch. A. Thema at Rubasu. The next show was Birmingham National at Stafford where we had Mr Gerard Jipping from the Netherlands, (the President of the Royal Dutch KC no less) and he gave the junior dog Fantasa Dallas Maverick, top prizes of CC and BOB. The BCC went to Seiger, Fletcher & Merryweather’s Ch. Killarney’s Heartland B Like Brooke Shields. Last Sunday at SKC, Mr Nick Bryce-Smith had just ten entries and he gave DCC & BOB to Dawson’s Ch. Kurriera Orlando at Lyncris (shortlisted in Group) and BCC, her title-achiever, to Parker & Stevens, Serenaker Khamsin.
So no leaders yet but congratulations all round everyone. Also, a special mention for PHC Treasurer Pam Ayling who took BOB at The National with her Cirneco Dell Etna, Hadranensis Cher – super day for you, well done. Pam is judging Pharaohs at Windsor soon, sorry we couldn’t arrange a carriage ride down through the park for you!
Next Monday is Bath show with 15 entries (no CCs til 2019) for Fred Ellingford, followed by Southern Counties and then the Club show at Baginton on Sunday 3rd June. I do hope we have decent weather because I believe the entry is pretty good for judge Jarmo Vourinen.
