Red Letter Day.

Two very happy events in the life of Team Phoenix occurred today…more details of the second, and most momentous, will be posted shortly, but for now it will suffice to say that we had a truly excellent show at the South Western Gundog Open where Phoenix again moved terrifically well, and achieved the following results:

  • 1st Junior HWV
  • Best Puppy in Breed (her 15th BP)
  • Best of Breed (her second BOB)
  • shortlisted/pulled out for Best in Show from a group of 25 Best of Breed winners, the rest of whom were all adults
  • 3rd Best Puppy in Show (from a group of 14 breed winners)
Southwestern Gundog Club 17th Oct

Stacked in the huge line for Best in Show.

Oh, and along with 4 x soopa-doopa rosettes we even managed to bag a cash prize for 3rd Best Puppy in Show – an unexpected bonus!

The judges critique read:

11 month old puppy with a well proportioned head and intelligent expression. Good depth of chest and correct angulation front and rear. Feminine but with a well proportioned body and well developed thigh. Level topline. Lovely coat. As her natural exuberance settled she moved very well maintaining a level topline. Best of Breed, Best Puppy and Puppy Group 3.”
