What a great 2 weeks I have had with my gang…
At Boston, under Frank Wildman, Dixie won Best Dog, Best Puppy and Best Opposite Sex. Tippi won 2nd in open bitch.
Then I took Dixie to Market Harborough on Sat 16th Jan. We had breed classes and he won 1st in Junior, Best Puppy in Breed and Best of Breed under Eileen Geeson (Janavons). He then went into the Group and won 4th in Utility Adult Group and Puppy Group 1!!!!! We then went in for the challenge under Mrs Marlent Carter (Somanic) and won Reserve Best Puppy In Show!!!!!! Just out of interest, both the judges were poodle breeder/exhibitors.
Then onto the big show Manchester. Our Judge was yet another top poodle breede, Mrs Carol Harwood (Minarets). Dixie won 1st in Puppy Dog, Best Puppy Dog, the Dog CC, Best Puppy in Breed and, to top it all off, Best of Breed – all at the age of 11 months! This was Dixie first CC. I was in total shock and so so proud…. what a fantastic few weeks and a great start to 2010.
