Sunday was the BSDA Open Show at the Dobermann centre near Welwyn Garden . The weather was abominable with rain and wind. The journey took a lot longer than usual due to the spray on the motorway. It was always going to be a crazy day as I had entered all four varieties plus the Obedience and GCits. Udall won his class and was BPDogGron. Psyche had a 3rd in OBGron. Tia had a 3rd in LB Tervueren. Cliche was BD and BOB Malinois, Cesar BVet Dog & BVin Breed. Lexi won JB,Calla won PGB and Ciel BVetBitch and BB. Deepha was RBB and 3rd in Pre-Beginners obedience..Roco (Cliche son)was BPMalinois (well done Christianne)and went on to BPinShow! Cesar enjoyed his day out and won Pre-Beginners obedience, 2nd in Beginners and gained his Bronze GCits.Calla got her Bronze GCits as well, Well Done David. Brizo was BB Laekenois and then went on to Best In Show !!!! apparently my face was a picture as I was so surprised.
It didn't really sink in until the journey home by which time I was so tired and cold that I had to pull over and catch some zzzzzs. It has taken me two days to recover so apologies for not putting the news up straight away. The dogs were tired too and have spent most of the time asleep. Thanks to all our friends who braved the weather, Kim for the wonderful cakes, and everyone who held on to dogs as I dashed in and out of classes, also of course to the judges who thought so highly of my dogs :)).
A son of Bruine, Delark Wizards' Omen was BP Tervueren.
NBSDC show next weekend, this time up in Co Durham so an early start again--just hope the weather is kinder and not so cold. Basil, a Bruine son, has his first show there, so looking forward to that.
