There’s no stopping us this year, yet another Group placing to report – this time it was Kate Tate’s puppy TELL A TALE TO JAEVA who took Group 3 in the Puppy Group – congratulations to all his connections.
All-rounder David Shields had an entry of 36 (17 dogs and 19 bitches) and the results followed pretty much the story of the year so far – another win, his sixth CC in fairly quick succession, for “Ronnie” CH WATERCROFT CALLING TIME (Ch Strathinver Sea The Stars x Watercroft Top Tipple), this time with Gerda Van Stuivenberg’s Croation/Dutch and now UK Champion JAEVA BIT O’BOVER (Ch Jaeva Cufflink x Fontanesi Top Totty) in the RDCC spot.
The Bitch CC and Res CC both came out of the Open Bitch class, the ticket going to CH WATERCROFT GOLD DUST (Ch Kinsridge Cash Back x Ch Watercroft Top Totty) and, dare I say it again, another RCC for BELLEVILLE OVATION (Allright Highland Moon x Belleville Constellation).
Following his success at City of Birmingham, TELL A TALE TO JAEVA won Best Puppy (Nanstop Bulgari x Jaeva Charming Tale)
Last but by no means least, getting his fifth Best Veteran in Breed this year so far was Patsy Green’s nine year old dog, Cromer, CH WHARFVALLEY DIAMOND STAR (Brickin Smart Outlook x Wharfvalley Rose Petal).
