The Windsor Show is a great favourite with Norfolk exhibitors, both for the lovely location on Home Park, which is overlooked by Windsor Castle and also because it is the venue for our traditional strawberry picnic! The weather was absolutely scorching for this year’s show, so Jill Stevenson had to keep her cool going over a good entry of 21 dogs and 35 bitches, with just 5 absentees.
Jill found her DCC and the BOB in the Junior Dog Class, in the shape of WATERCROFT CALLING TIME (Ch Strathinver Sea the Stars x Watercroft Top Tipple), his second CC this year. Karen Hurrion and Sally Standen’s VILLASSA JACK BE QUICK (Am Ch Max-Wells Union Jack at Villassa – Villassa Gold N’Delight) continued his recent good form, getting his third RDCC of the year from the Limit Dog class, to go with his first CC from Darlington last year.
It’s not often a CC comes from the Post Graduate class, but it’s nice to see: the Bitch CC went to Jackie Phillips’ BLAKENS LOOK NO FURTHER (Ch Blakens I Look To You – Ch Blakens Sugar Candy Kisses), following up her first CC at Border Union twelve days earlier. The RBCC went to Ruth Gee’s WATERCROFT GOLD DUST (Ch Kinsridge Cash Back – Ch Watercroft Top Tia), just missing that all important third CC.
The Best Puppy, following her success at Border Union, was Cathy Thompson Morgan’s BELLEVILLE BACK TO BLACK (Ch Belleville Seduction – Ch Allright Black Bess)
