We came home with a nice addition to the Manchela household: Gilcar Crystal Blue (Pheobe) has come to stay with us for a while to try to learn some showmanship skills and how to eat properly. Pheobe is out of Manchela Crystal Maze, by Sh Ch Glowhill Silver Spur. Our thanks to Gill and Charlotte for letting Pheobe come to stay

South Western Gundog Club – Open Show

Went to the Matford Centre at Exeter for this well run friendly show. We had a fantastic day all round – Zorro won his junior class and best dog under Mrs Liz Harper (Pitswarren), whilst Ramona won her open class, best bitch, best of breed and RBIS under Mr Peter Harper (Pitswarren). Our Pointer, Fleur (Dalens Icicle at Manchela) was entered in Junior under Mrs Liz Harper where there were four entries and delighted us be enjoying herself (she has been very spooky and this is the first time she decided to enjoy herself). She won 2nd in her class, beaten only by her sister who also won BOB – sooooo pleased with our girl
