Monday and no sunshine but dry and mild here in Oxfordshire, it is time to catch up with our Junior Handler Victoria
On Monday my Dad took Jack to obedience. Jack behaved very well for him ,he did a very good heel and come and a very good stay (the exercise Jack is not very good at)! My Dad is going to train Jack at obedience until after Crufts, then I will have a go with him. If jack doesn't behave then my Dad will have another go.
On Thursday we went to ringcraft. Jack was VERY good. His stand was excellent and we have sorted out his leaning problem and his heel was perfect.
On Sunday we went to Kent County Canine Association. We were in AVNSC terrier and the judge was Bill Blacker. We were first in the ring so we didn't have long to wait. Jack behaved perfectly and only had one fault...he lifted his leg up on the table and would NOT put it down. We came 2nd place and i am very proud of my Bojangles.
well done AGAIN to Chocco who got RBOB and to Poppy (Chocco's aunt)who got BOB! Well done to Sandra, Norman ,Lesley and Jon!
Crufts in not very far away and we are all very excited! we got our passes on Wednesday. We are all looking forward to meetiong fellow bloggers so don't be shy, come up and say hello.
lots of love Victoria and Jack Bojangles
Well done Victoria, Dad tells me there were 5 terriers in Jack's class yesterday, so you both did great. I have heard of Bill Blacker he could be experienced in judging the bedlngton, perhaps one of the bloggers could tell us. Just over a week now until Crufts, it will be fantastic to see you handling Jack in the ring, it is very different at Crufts as the rings are so much bigger than at most indoor shows. It is great as you have room to really stride out no matter how many are in the class!

Hi,

Well done, keep up the good work, and as for Crufts it is an excuse for a new outfit, and to show just how well you and Jack work together, head up for both of you as if walking on to a stage "Look at us folks this is how it's done!" Lots of love see you there.

Well done Victoria and Jack! good luck at Cruft's next week. We have been so many times and have always enjoyed it, the most memorable was in 1998 when we won best puppy and dog CC with Rotherview Blue Comet, he was only 11 months old, a day we will never forget.
