Breed Notes, 30th August 2017
The Welsh Kennel Club had an entry of 33 dogs with 6 absent for judge Bob Blackley who was giving Challenge Certificates in our breed for the first time. It was a long wait being fourth in the ring and we were judged inside as the weather was unpredictable. Dog CC & BOB was Ch/Am Gr Ch Pennywise On The Road Again (Am Ch Derrydown Schooners Keeping Up Appearances ex Am Ch Cut To The Chase) owned by Beverly Deacon and Judy Hill, bred by the late Cathy Nelson. Willie then rounded off the day by winning Group 3 under David Guy. Bitch CC went to Barbara Milton's Ch Hawkesmill Jenny for Wilmit (Cloverwood Driving Force ex Ch & Aus Ch Jollygaze Hopeless Romantic For Hawkesmill) bred by Graham and Margaret Russell. RCCS went to Jenny's litter brother Hawkesmill Jefferson at Etsill JW owned by Barbara Kurg and Dandiroyal Puddleglum owned and bred by Sheila Rolland. Best Puppy was Mishahda Nothing Compares at Pogleswood owned by Tony and Debbie Perry with Best Veteran Cassencarrie Burning Issue owned and bred by Beverly who then went onto VGrp3 under Mrs V Phillips handled on this occasion by Barbara Milton.
 
The Scottish Kennel held its second Championship Show last weekend with Jeff Horswell judging an entry of 27 dogs with 8 absent. He found his Bitch CC & BOB in Ch Hawkesmill Jenny at Wilmit,, breeding above who has had a very successful season this year and has made the cut in the Group several times. This show she actually went Group 2 under Andrew Westwood so congratulations to Barbara Milton and Jenny's breeders Graham and Margaret Russell. More success for Hawkesmill when Jenny's litter brother Jefferson at Etsill won the Dog CC owned by Barbara Kurg this was his all important 3rd CC giving the breed a new Champion. He won his first CC at the SDDTC '16, judge Mike Macbeth; his second at Windsor this year, judge Beverly Deacon. RBCC went to Sheila Rolland's Dandiroyal Puddleglum, with RDCC going to Dentgate Mulberry from Puppy who was also Best Puppy in Breed, owned and bred by Tim and Gill Denham. Mulberry then went onto PGr4. under J. Richie. In all two fabulous weekends giving great publicity for our breed.
