Scottish Kennel Club Champ Show - 28/8/11

Well the rain continued and the showground was already muddy when we got there, so keeping everyone clean was a nightmare! Thorn managed 2nd in GR Minor Puppy Dog, gaining his 3rd Crufts 2012 qualifier and his mother Orchid was 2nd in GR Post Graduate Bitch gaining her Crufts 2012 Qualifier. We are so thrilled as this is all 4 of the show team qualified now for Crufts 2012.

Unfortunately, it rained! but we did manage to avoid the showers for our classes. Thorn was 2nd in GR Puppy Dog, Clover 3rd in GR Puppy Bitch, 2nd GR Junior Bitch, Brook 1st in GR Post Grad Dog and Orchid 2nd in GR Post Grad Bitch. A good start to the wet weekend.
