Bournemouth is not the favourite venue amongst our regular exhibitors, so perhaps that accounts for the slightly lower than usual entry for a show with CCs (9 dogs, 10 bitches). Also, Terriers were on the Monday this year which again may have made it difficult for those who work.
The Watercroft kennel had another great day, taking most of the top awards and making up a second Champion of the year so far in WATERCROFT CALLING TIME. (He is by Ch Strathinver Sea The Stars out of Watercroft Top Tipple). He got his other CCs at Three Counties and Windsor, and also took Best Dog at Leeds and Blackpool where there were no CCs on offer, so a consistent winner this year.
The RDCC went to the Limit class winner, Mary Atkinson’s CHARLIE BLAKE AT MOORTOP. He is by Blakens Sugar Candy Dips out of Sheltrice Blakeys Molly.
Ruth Gee had the double in the Bitches, with WATERCROFT GOLD DUST (Ch Kinsridge Cash Back – Ch Watercroft Top Tia) taking the CC and WATERCROFT PINK FIZZ (Ch Strathinver Sea The Stars out of Watercroft Top Tipple) the RBCC. These two have been taking turns with the CC and RCC over the last couple of shows.
Mary Atkinson had a second top placing taking Best Puppy with her dog puppy MOORTOP MY MARK AGAIN (a Charlie Blake son out of Moortop Again No Choice).
Sadly, no Group placings to report on this occasion.
