Welsh Kennel Club - the examination.

Welsh Kennel Club - the examination.

Today we journeyed through the Black Mountains to arrive at the prestigious Welsh Kennel Club Championship show at Builth Wells. A great showground, and a good entry of HWV’s.  Judging took place in a series of vast open-sided marquees, very light, cool and airy – perfect show conditions in fact.

Phoenix was in fine form today, and gave what was probably her all-round best show performance to date – consistently excellent stands and fairly fluid gaiting. Despite initially mistaking Phoenix for a male(!) Judge Margaret Holmes was swift and decisive and we were delighted to be awarded 1st Puppy Dog or Bitch, and Best Puppy in Breed…after two 3rd placings and one 2nd this was our first 1st place at a Championship Show, a real breakthrough!

The judges critique read:

Nine month old bitch with good body length and balance. Head still needs to break but her eye and earset are good, furnishings and coat are good. She has straight forelegs. Topline, croup and rear angulation all please. Reasonably positive movement for age and stage of development. An attractive package. Best Puppy.”
