We started the month with a trip to Eugowra, always a lovely country show with a good entry. Pan was awarded Best of Breed giving him his final points to become an Australian Champion at just 12 months of age. This weekend our little Bliss also won Best Puppy in Group twice.
The biggest event on the Australian dog show calendar is without a doubt the Purina Sydney Royal Easter Show. This year we took 8 dogs and had the best time. In sweepstakes Pan was awarded 3rd place in a class of 22 youngsters and Apollo was award 5th in a huge class of 68 baby puppies. At breed level we again did extremely well, with the following results:
Apollo, 1st place baby puppy dog class
Athena, 1st place baby puppy bitch class and Best Baby Puppy of Breed
Bliss, 1st place in junior bitch class
Pan, 3rd place in junior dog class
Tuppence, 2nd place in intermediate bitch class
Cleo, 2nd place in Australian bred bitch class
Quest, 5th place in Australian bred dog class
The final weekend of the month saw us trek out to Gunnedah and have Koala’s watch us from above as we showed our dogs. What a great weekend of wins we had with: Apollo winning 3rd in Puppy Sweepstakes at two of the three shows. Pan won Best Junior in Group at all three shows plus a Best Junior in Show, he also won another challenge. Cleo won two challenges and a huge win with Runner up to Best in Group. Quest won a Best of Breed and baby Athena won Best Minor Puppy in Group at two of the three shows.
