Bilbo is a Champion!

Posted Posted in Dog shows

Bilbo got his third Challenge Certificate under Anne Arch at City of Birmingham Champ Show on 30 August 2014 and becomes a Champion – we always believed in him and were over the moon – our first ever show dog and he gets this far with us novices, so it just goes to prove that anyone with faith can do it! To top it all, Pickle got the Reserve CC and Dora came 2nd in PB.

Dora goes Best of Breed at Bournemouth Champ Show 2014

Thrilled with Dora who went Best of Breed and Best Puppy at the Bournemouth Champ Show today, 10.8.2014, with Uncle Bilbo getting the Reserve Best Dog.  Poor little soul was exhausted by the end of a long hot day and was flagging by the time she had to be rushed from one Group to another, spending most of the time lying down and refusing to get up!  Hey ho, that’s our Dora! We had the wonderful photo taken above by Alan Walker at the show.

Had a lovely day in the sunshine at the C&NF Open Show, Canford Magna with Heeler friends and picnic!  Bilbo got Reserve Best of Breed despite prancing about all over the spiky long grass, and Spot came along to see what showing is all about and enjoyed meeting other Heelers.  Our friend Jean did a great job in the Brace Stakes and won with Jazz & Toto.  Lovely day, wonderful dogs and great company!

Had a lovely weekend, flying the Heeler flag at South West Working & Pastoral Breed Association Open Show in Weston-super-Mare with Bilbo where he was Best of Breed, then travelling on to Bristol to spend the night with Lynn & Charlie, Mouse, Ouzo and Boris (previously known as Flash Harry!).  Boris remembered us and was so pleased to play with Bilbo and jump all over me, whilst Mouse was rather upset that I hadn’t brought Pickle along instead of Bilbo! We went up to Shenstone on the Sunday 4 May 2014 to go to the Lancashire Heeler Club Show and […]
