Wiveliscombe Limited Show

A very well run first show for this society with a great atmosphere – the weather was kind to us all day and the grass rings were beautifully mown. I only entered Ellie today for some more practise – first time on grass. She showed so well and won Minor Puppy, Gundog Puppy group and Best Puppy in Show under the well known and respected judge Mr Glyn Griffiths

The Cocker Spaniel Club Championship Show

Willow and the new kid on the block Ellie – Dykere Lavender Blue for Manchela (Sire: GB Sh Ch/SU (u) CH Manchela Born to be Wild JW, Dam: Dykere Alice Blue Lace) ventured up to Malvern to the prestigious Cocker Spaniel Club Championship 110th aniversary show which attracted well over 400 entries. I was delighted when Willow won AOC Open which was a quality class containing two champions and other cc winners – she later was shortlisted in the last six for the bitch cc one of only two particolours.

This was Ellie’s first show and I was delighted that her breeder Anne Dicker and her daughter Sarah made the journey to watch her strut her stuff. Ellie was awarded 2nd in Minor Puppy out of 18 entries – result! Thank you to the bitch judge Sue Kettle (Lujesa) for making this a memorable day!

My sincere congratulations must go to Pat and Elaine Whitehead whose Ryallcourt Moloh won her first cc and BIS (another of Samuel’s daughters)
