Two major events for us this month. The first was the Golden Retriever Club of NSW Championship shows held on 16th & 17th September. On Saturday we had a breed specialist from Ireland and 117 goldens entered. I was delighted for Bliss to win Bitch Challenge (best female dog of the day) and then go on to win Best Junior in Show. Baby Orion also won big, with Best Baby Puppy in Show. His sister BlueBreeze A New Moon Rises “Dante” owned by Samantha Anderson won her class and finished Opposite Baby in Show, behind her brother. BlueBreeze Grand Divinity “Wilson” owned by Deb Casey won his class & then Opposite Puppy in Show. The gorgeous Miss Cleo won Best Australian Bred in Show. BlueBreeze Queen of the Desert “Cilla” owned by Charmaine Budden was placed 4th in a very competitive Intermediate bitch class. Our other places were Apollo 2nd in Puppy dog class, Venus 5th in Baby Puppy bitch class, Tuppence 5th in Intermediate bitch class. To be placed at a specialty show with dogs entered from all over Australia is an honour, to win your class and go on to win a class in show is fantastic!!
On Sunday under a world renowned breed specialist from Queensland we continued to be rewarded. My star again was Bliss who won Best Junior in Show for the second day in a row. Baby Orion won his class & finished with Opposite Baby Puppy in Show. Apollo won Best Puppy in Show. Our places were: Quest 5th in Australian Bred dog class, Venus 4th in Baby Puppy bitch class, Athena 3rd in Puppy bitch class and Tuppence 3rd in Intermediate bitch class.
All in all an absolutely fantastic weekend of wins for the BlueBreeze team.
The following weekend 22nd & 23rd September we drove up to Newcastle to show. On Friday 22nd Quest gained the final points he needed to achieve his Grand Championship title!! Quest now joins the ranks at BlueBreeze with Flynn, Star, Jazz & Deity who also achieved this coveted title. We couldn’t be more proud of this gorgeous boy to gain the 1,000 points needed while he is still a four year old!!! Orion won another Best Baby Puppy in Group. Athena won a Best of Breed and a Best Puppy in Group. Quest also won a Best Australian Bred in Group along with two Best of Breeds.
