North Wales Cocker Spaniel Club

A long journey with an early start today to travel to North Wales Cocker Spaniel Club Breed Championship Show under bitch judge Mrs Carol Steeples (Casrod). Ellie won AC Puppy in very good company and Willow won a hotly contested AOC Open class and was awarded her second CC. The journey home was much easier having had a such a memorable day! Thank you to all my friends for their messages of congratulation!

Received welcomed news from Jacqueline that Buddy (Manchela Star Struck) has arrived safely in Trinidad and is enjoying playing in the sun in her garden. My heartfelt thanks go to my good friend Anne Dicker for taking all the organisational stress away from me and dealt with absolutely everything!

More news from Ingunn

“Funny story; I did say in my last e-mail that Samuel’s hunting abilities were not the best…. yesterday he took one of the little chickens!!;)) You should have seen his face and eyes!!! “I have nothing in my mouth and have done nothing wrong”!! Only the little chicken’s feet coming out of his mouth….LOL
The chicken did survive, very wet and afraid…..
