A very early start for yesterday's show!! We left at 5am, with a stop on the way to feed the ponies.

Fergus was 1st in the ring and got 5th in the Veteran dog class.

Jodie and Molly were 1st in Cocker Spaniel junior and a 3rd in the open class.

Becky and Whisper 1st Golden Retriever puppy bitch. 1st in Novice and BP in breed.

It was about 3pm before the terriers started and Caitlin was asked to take a westie puppy Barbarella Cheeky Breeks into the breed challenge and won BOB she then got puppy group 4.

In the Glen of Imaal class Findlay took the BOB and Bp then puppy group 3

AVNSC terrier Rowan was 2nd.

The Young Kennel club handling class was the first of the handling classes. Although Glenn, Caitlin, Becky and Jodie all handled very well they were not successful in getting placed.

Junior handling association class was much later. These were large classes. Becky decided to take Whisper home so did'nt get into this class. Glenn was in a class of around 8 and won it!!!

Caitlin won her class and Jodie was 3rd. Caitlin then went and won the BJH over Glenn. This qualifies both Caitlin and Glenn for the SKC handling final wich takes place in 2010. Crufts 2010 and Richmond 2009. Jodie qualifies for Richmond.

Thanks to their judge Mr Russell Mosedale who really made them work for their wins.
