On Thursday 8 March 2018 we got up at 3am to drive up the NEC, Birmingham for Crufts. We took all three dogs as we were on the Discover Dogs stand all day but had entered Dora, Madincrowd Bathsheba JW, into the Open Bitch Class which it turned out had the largest entry of 14 Heelers on the day.
With strong competition, we made the cut and then Dora was placed first – an amazing feeling. Next into the line up with the other winners from the bitch classes and we got the top prize – Best Bitch and her first Challenge Certificate – I was totally stunned and over the moon. And all this going on while Stephen was oblivious, chatting away with Bilbo & Pickle on the Discover Dogs stand!
We are still on Cloud Nine
