Our new babies keep us very busy here this month, so our shows were limited but successful. 5th August we did a quick local show where Orion won another Best Junior in Group. Pan was Best of Breed and Cleo won another Challenge.
Then we had the marathon weekend on 18th & 19th, where the Golden Retriever Club of NSW and the Gundog Society ran two championship shows on Saturday and again on Sunday. What an entry it drew, with dogs from Qld, Vic, SA, WA & of course NSW. We were up against the best of the best with well over 100 goldens entered at the specialty show and over 70 at the gundog show. Specialty breed judges from Finland, UK, Vic and a retrieving specialist from NZ for these four shows. How did we do?? Once again my rock star was Miss Cleo winning Reserve Challenge Bitch & Best Bred by Exhibitor in show, Athena won Best Intermediate in Show and Orion was Best Opposite Junior in Show. We entered 7 dogs with 6 receiving high placings or winning classes. I am very proud to have achieved so much at these events amongst some of the best goldens Australia has to offer.
