South Wales & Mon Cocker Spaniel Championship Show

We had a great day at this very friendly, well run show under breed judges: Bitches – Mrs Lin Parker (Weyhill) & Dogs – Mrs Anne Holmes (Kenan)

Ramona won a 2nd in a very nice Post Graduate class

“Goodbye for Now”

Today was a tough day – said “goodbye for now” to Zorro (Manchela Paco Rabanne JW) and Ezmay (Manchela Faith) as they set out on their journey across the pond to live with our trusted friend Elizabeth Neff. I am sure they will do us proud in the show ring but most of all just to be themselves and have a great life. Good luck my little ones x
