Monday And We Say Hello To  Our Junior Handler Victoria

LPIC1121[13][5][5]

On Thursday I didn't go to ringcraft as I was on a history school trip to see the world war 1 trenches,the Menim Gate and a British War Cemetery at Tyne Cot. I saw a few people with our surname, when I got home I looked it on the internet, one of the men that fell lived in the same street that my granddad was born in, so we are assuming he is a relative, which was quite moving!

On Saturday we got jack and rose ready for Gravesend and Medway Canine Society. On Sunday we went to the open show. Rose was in AVNSC Terrier Puppy and AV Terrier Puppy. I was also in Junior Handling. Jamie, Kerry,  Charles Joe and Luchia Zanelli were there. Joe had a go at Junior Handling 6-11. He took Jack in and got 1st! well done Joe! Kerry and Iris got 3rd in AVNSC Terrier Puppy and 4th in AV Terrier Puppy. Well done iris!

Jack got 3rd in AV Terrier Open and 3rd in AVNSC Terrier Post Graduate. Rose got 2nd in AVNSC Terrier Puppy and 3rd in AV Terrier Puppy. Rose behaved really well for such a young puppy,I was really surprised. I decided to take rose in Junior handling, as she was behaving herself and it would be good practice to get her in the ring, Rose walked really well and stood fairly still on the table. I made a few silly mistakes in the line up,but got 2nd! A very well done to Joe who qualified for Richmond junior handling semi finals on his first go at handling! Our next show is the BTA Open Show so we will see you all there. Lots of love Victoria and Jack and Rose

Goodness Victoria what an exciting week, first discovering you may have an unknown relative that is buried in the War Cemetery. Perhaps if you investigate further you may be able to find out some more information!  And secondly well done to Rose, Iris and Jack. And a very big well done to Joe who qualified for the Junior Handling Semi-finals at his very first show.  It is fantastic to see young people taking an interest in handling, hopefully the breed shows will put on handling classes.

A very big 'well done' to Joe. He must have learnt a lot from you, Victoria!

Well Victoria, you'll have to get cracking on a family search now to see if it was a relative at Tyne Cot. Keep us informed.

Well done to all dogs and junior handlers. We went to the war cemeteries some years ago and found the name of our friends grandfather who was killed before he could see his baby daughter(her mother) We were able to place a poppy at the memorial. It was incredibly moving.
