We entered the show at a last minute thought. great thing about a virtual show is nobody knows the judges until the end of the show winners are announced, So very nice to learn we had an European Judge.!! Only 2 photos were entered
Last year 2019 was the first time we have entered the Breeder Competition on NZ Dogzonline Point score.
Thanks to NZ CH Sailema Ritches Romance (Bracken who gained her New Zealand title) Our 20th Show Champion!!!! and of course lady managed to get to a two Shows!! We stopped showing all our dogs early October due to our first litter in 2 years to the co owned imported springer from Australia and a new Grandson born 2 and half weeks early!!
A great year. Bliss had he third litter producing 3 awesome pups. 2 bitches and 1 dog. Bracken is going to be a trooper . Wins best of breed at her 2 second Show. Not shown much as a puppy as we spent 23 months in South America. however she was placed third in the ESS Riding Star Sadly Lady was mated twice producing no puppies. Dylan at 10 years old win n All Breed veteran Stakes with n entry of 26 dogs.What a great finish for an old boy
Shelby was titled our 17th English Springer Champion.
It has bee a busy year with puppies in Feb. All are doing well in their new homes. Dylan had a few outing picking up some age groups. A Major win was Veteran in Show at the Southern Gundog Society in April. The National Dog Show was held in Christchurch. Dylan the old by managed Best of Breed closely challenged by his daughter!!
