Thanks to the Society for this judging appointment, and also to Jeff and Judith for the accommodation – I had a brilliant time. Thanks to all my tracklayers, you did a brill job. Thanks also to my stewards – you did a fab job and were good company.
The weather was very cold, with windy showers, but the dogs coped well with all conditions.
There were no placings; the jumps were the main problem
1st B Digges, KALYON JASPER, BC, 187. A nice track in the wind. Well done.
2nd D Conlon, REGAN’S BOY, GSD, 183.5. Did a fab track (best track) and will do well with more experience. Well done.
1st J Hickey, Ch HA’PENNY KELTIC MAGIC, BC, 195.5. Got stuck at one point on the track, but then just took off, and then got a full point C/A round. Well done.
2nd C Woods, PARAVEL ILLUSION, CDEx, UDEx, GSD, 182.5. Had a few blips on the track, and only 3 from the square. Well done.
1st J Hickey, HA’PENNY KINGFISHER, CDEx – WDEx, BC, 203.5. A bit slow on the track, but managed to complete it in time, then a good C/A round. You had a good weekend, Jenny. Well done on your first Green Star.
2nd J Owens-Poole, ShCh FIRCROFT BELLISIMA, Portuguese Water Dog, 203. Worked well throughout the test – shame she was eating grass in the down stay. Joint best track. Well done on the Reserve Green Star.
3rd S Rawson, BATTERSEA’S BEST TO PELE, WSD, 200.5. Did well in the wind, and a good C/A round. Well done.
The other joint best track was by J Owens-Poole’s FIRCROFT DALWINNIE, TDEx, BC. Well done
I had a brill time, with good company of a great team to work with. What more does a judge need? Thank you very much and good luck to you all in 2012.
