Fabulous day judging Standard Poodles at the very special Windsor Championship Dog Show. Committee were so welcoming to me and mum and I had the pleasure of judging some wonderful dogs. Very proud of my final line up, a fabulous white male for BOB who just won over a super black girl who won best of her sex, a promising puppy bitch and a delightful veteran girl at 10 yrs old as best veteran and flying the flag proudly for the oldies. Super day and super dogs thank you to all. Small snap from the day. Cara

Victoria and Sunshine had a very tiring but very exciting day today! At their first ever show, British Toy Poodle Club 2014, Victoria only 6 months old today, won Minor Puppy Bitch and Sunshine, just a month older, came second in her class, Puppy Bitch AOC. They thoroughly enjoyed their day out and so did we. Just love showing puppies, such fun.
Had a really lovely girlie day with Tash and Cara, and seeing the grandchildren Abi & Rhys for lunch and getting our new puppies ready for ringcraft training on Monday. It’s very tiring being a show dog though when you are only a baby !!
