Weekend Antics…

Yesterday saw Mingus’ 2nd show – the Exeter & County Canine Soc Open.  By the time the HWV classes came around the originally promisingly-cool-and-cloudy weather had given way to baking hot sun, which was less than ideal.

Judge & HWV owner Lesley Trow attracted a large entry of Wires, of which Mingus was the youngest. Despite the odds apparently being stacked well against him Mingus was awarded 1st Open, Best Puppy, and Best of Breed once again, which was pretty awesome going!

The, err, rather minimal judges critique read:

Good coat, good straight front and feet. Best of Breed. Best Puppy in Breed.

Hot dog Mingus.

The very large Gundog Group took the best part of 45 mins to judge, which, (coming on top of three visits to the breed ring) added up to a long time for Mingus to be out in such a hot ring, alleviated a little by lots of sprays of water. The Puppy Group, and more hot ring-time followed but Mingus kept himself together and performed admirably… then things started to get a little odd.

Mingus was chosen for Puppy Group 2 – which was an incredible result – but due to some ermmm…confusion, and ummmm… argy bargy in the ring he got recorded as Puppy Group 4 instead – much to Tim’s considerable bewilderment/frustration….which unfortunately kind-of put the dampener on what should have been (and which by any standards still was) a really great result…but so it was.

So, two shows and two Best of Breeds at 6 months old –  couldn’t be a better start in the ring for our li’l lad!

    Many Congratulations. I should have been there but had neglected to put it in my diary, I didn’t realise until the evening!
