A super start to the month with the long drive to Forbes to compete in the Dubbo shows. The Pan once again did us proud winning a Best in Group and 3 Best Australian Bred in Groups. Tiara also did well being placed 3rd in Puppy Sweepstakes and winning a Best Minor Puppy in Group.
Mid month we had a huge weekend in Sydney with four shows:
The Golden Retriever Club of NSW Inc. double Championship show with specialty golden judges from the UK & Scotland, Orion, The Pan & Tiara were all placed in their classes with Bliss being our star this weekend winning her class in show on Saturday & opposite in show on Sunday. With an entry of 83 & 90 at both shows, just being placed in an honour.
The Gundog Society double Championship show. These shows have judges who are Gundog specialists and drew an entry of 40 & 38. On Saturday Orion, The Pan, Bliss & Tiara each won their class and on the Sunday not only won their class but also their opposites. The highlights were The Pan who won both Reserve Dog Challenges & Tiara at just 8 months won Reserve Bitch Challenge.
Specialist judges attract a large entry along with interstate exhibitors, we competed against some of the very best Goldens in the country and were delighted with our wins!
End of the month we were back in Newcastle, with another set of excellent wins. Tiara again won some more challenges and also another Bet Minor Puppy in Group, our star for the weekend was Orion winning a Runner up to Best in Group and two Best Intermediates in Group. All up a very successful month!!
