Darlington Champ Show - 18/9/11

Another good day with Thorn gaining a 2nd in GR Minor Puppy dog and Clover was 5th in both GR Junior Bitch & Undergraduate bitch. Unfortunately Clover has decided to change her coat for the winter and is a little thread bare at the moment! She will be taking a rest after the next show now till the new year until her coat comes back in.
Orchid competed in the Post Graduate Stakes against other Gundog & Toy breeds and came home with a very respectable 4th.

Stanhope Agricultural Soc. open Show - 11.09.11

A rarther windy day in the Weardale valley where I was litterally 'blown away'!
Thorn won the Golden Retriever puppy class with Best Puppy in Breed, Clover 2nd in Junior, Orchid won the graduate class and Brook won the Open. Thorn then went up against the other Gundog puppies for the Best Puppy in Group, and to my amazement he won the group! This took him forward to compete for best puupy in show, he tried his best but his young age showed against the older puppies from the other groups and he lost out on the final phase, but we are still so proud of him, such an achievement for his tender 7 months of age.

Birmingham City Champ Show - 04/9/11

A long drive down to Stoneleigh for me after being at an Open show in Woolsingham yesterday where Clover won Best Puppy in Breed, Orchid won Limit GR and Brook won Open GR.
Unfortunately Thorn wasn't placed in his class but his mother, Orchid was 2nd in Post Graduate Bitch, gaining another Crufts 2012 qualifire and 2nd in GR Good Citizen Bitch, so it made the trip well worth while and the long drive home a lot easier!
