It was a busy weekend with agility at Scunthorpe, where David and Rusty were 3rd in Grade 7 Agility and won the 6-7Crufts Qualifier. Grace and Lisa, Helen and Sammy all came up to stay for the BSDA Open show the next day. Held at Markfields, Leicestershire there was a good few inches of snowfall overnight. It was a bit of a family outing with Cougar and four of his kids entered, and Grace took some pics afterwards with Celine.Pictured are (l to r) Bonvivant Saphir(Saffi), B.Symbolique(Lexi), B.Sauvignon avec Zodantta(Kobra). The group pic has dad Ch B.Esprit, B.Symbolique, mum B.Halsane, B.Saphir and B.Sauvignon.(l to r). Unfortunately Barbara and Sam (B.Saumur) had gone home before we got chance to get some photos done, and it started to snow again. Hopefully we can get the whole litter together one day for a photo.
In Tervueren Remy was BPDog, Bruine won his class, Asta was 2nd and Dula had a 3rd in OB. In Malinois Cougar was BD, Kobra was RBD, Lexi was BP,BB and BOB, beating her dad again! RBB was B.Non Pareil with Stonedragon (Vienna) and B.Arc en Ciel was BVeteran. Ciel then went on to be Best Veteran in Show! being her usual boisterous 11yrs young!
In the obedience Linda Strange with Bonvivant Pavane (Hava) won the Pre-Beginners class, a brilliant result--well done!
The show had a good atmosphere and there were lots of people I hadn't seen for ages.
