We Now Hear From Our Young Handler Sarah
Here is my report for Monday : Well done to all those who went to Birmingham National. Looks like you all had fun without us, lol. Also well done to all who made the trip to SKC. Particularly Viv & Ed with Bonnie, that was a brilliant result.
We were judging the Essex Working Trials Society's Companion Show last Saturday. Mum had the Pedigree classes & I had the Novelty classes. It was rather windy, but the rain held off. Mum was up first, so I was stewarding. We do not have all the results, but here are all the first places :
Any Variety Puppy - 8 entries First was an Akita
Any Variety Hound - 5 entries First was a Whippet
Any Variety Working or Pastoral - 9 entries, 2 absent First was an Australian Shepherd
Any Variety Terrier - 5 entries, 1 absent First was a Border Terrier
Any Variety Toy or Utility - 8 entries First was a Standard Poodle
Any Variety Gundog - 10 entries, 2 absent First was a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever
BIS was the Toller, RBIS was the Border Terrier, BPIS was the Akita
After Mum had finished, we swapped places. I have not got a clue what the results were, but I had nine classes & there were 121 dogs with 166 entries. Prettiest Bitch was probably the biggest class with Thirty-five bitches. At the end of the day I had been jumped up, slobbered on & covered in hair by every dog there, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. We all had a great day though & I would love to do it again. Hopefully we will see you all at the Bedlington Fun day.Sarah, Lilly & Rosie.
What great day, it must have been so difficult for you and Mum to sift through such a huge variety of dogs to find the winners, but such fun! See you soon at the Fun day.
