Tweedmouth Canine Society Open Show - 22.04.11

Well it was Brooks turn today, he won the Golden Retriever Open class and then went on to win Best of Breed, and if that wasn't good enough, he went on to take 4th in the Gundog Group! Now it looks like I've got some rivalry between Orchid & him now as they both have the same number of points towards their Show Certificate of Merits. Unfortunately though Orchid has now well lost her coat and won't be in the show ring for a few months, time for Brook to overtake?

Sunderland & District open Show - 17.04.11

Another good day for the 'gang' Clover won the Golden Retriever Junior Class and went Best Puppy in Breed, Orchid won GR graduate, and Brook won GR Open. Orchid went on to win the Best in Breed, not bad for a lady that had pups just 12 weeks ago!

Thorn update - 11 weeks old

Well training starts young here, so here is our first attempt at show standing.
Trying to get Thorn to stand still for 2 seconds is a major achievent, but time & patience we might have it mastered by 6 months old.

And here he is relaxing

Consett Open Show - 10.04.11

Its only 11 weeks tomorrow since Orchid had her pups, and today she was back in the ring and won the Golden Retriever Post Graduate class, unfortunately in the Best of Breed line up she decided to 'work her ticket'!! and throw it all away. nevermind, there's always next week, hopefully her coat will hold for 2 more weeks but it is coming out now.
Clover managed a 4th in Puppy class - she was the babay there, and Brook a 4th in the Open class, unfortunately his coat is leaving rapidly too now.

Another good day for Clover taking 5th in Minor Puppy Bitch and 4th in Maiden Bitch. A lovely drive up to Perth and back and a good result makes all the hard work worth it.
